Cruisin’ Photos

Cruise Night - March 2015

Was it the 4 Season’s who sang ‘O what a night’? Well it certainly was for the 5 winners in our annual Cruiser Grand Prize draw held at the March Cruise Night. Especially Mick from Somerville when his name came of the bucket to claim ownership of the 350 CI Chevrolet engine custom built by The Frankston Engine Centre.

Anyway, back to the beginning.

A forecast for a nice warm dry evening encouraged around 300 car owners to cruise to the Mornington Homemaker Centre for the big night on the LGC Cruiser calendar. The cars rolled in, the snags rolled off the BBQ and the rolls filled with beef or chicken were carried out of the Sober Mule Cafe.

It was soon 7 o’clock and we kicked off the presentations with the nights’ Cruiser draw for all the LGC Cruisers present and there were lots! The $100 note and the Dyno Tune voucher supplied by Chev’s Performance Centre soon found new homes. Then it was the entrant’s gate raffle, with a few attempts needed to find winners of the night’s ACDelco, Liqui Moly & Meguairs prize packs.

Real Car Guy

From time to time we like to recognize the contribution to our hobby individual car enthusiasts make. They can be well known car builders, active car club members, promoters of events or just great ambassadors for our hobby. Past recipients of this recognition have been people not directly involved with Let’s Go Cruisin. We decided to break tradition and surprised one of our own members who, in our view, embodies every aspect of what our Real Car Guy award represents. Tonight’s recipient was Bill Duyvestyn.

Bill is not only a tireless contributor to Let’s Go Cruisin activities but a life member of the Bay Rodders, the Bay Rodders rep at ASRF meetings, the 55-56-57 Chevrolet Club’s Clubman of the Year last year and a committee member of the last ASRF Street Rod Nationals held in Geelong. Then there’s all the cars he helps build or repair for other people. Wife Kerin will tell you, Bill rarely arrives in any cruise convoy at the end destination because he’s usually back on the side of the road helping with someone broken down. LGC President Alan Newton had great pleasure in presenting Bill with some unique Real Car Guy goodies as our way of recognizing the amazing contribution Bill continues to make to our hobby. The loud applause reflected the admiration car enthusiasts hold for Bill. Congratulations and well deserved Bill.

Then it was time for the LGC Cruiser Annual Prize Draw

With 2015 being the 10th Anniversary of hosting car events, we managed to step up our prize pool with over $10,000 worth of prizes to won by 5 lucky LGC Cruiser subscribers.

Prizes on offer consisted of:

  • High Performance 350 Chevrolet Engine custom built by Frankston Engine Centre valued at $7000
  • Hoppers Stoppers $1000 Voucher for products or services provided by Australia’s #1 brake upgrade team
  • Four BF Goodrich T/A tyres from American Used Tyabb valued at $900
  • A/C Components supplied by Radiator Workshop Mornington valued at $700
  • 3.5 Hours of Media Blasting from EnviroBlast valued at $700

First name out of the bucket was Mick from Somerville who claimed the engine prize. He was so stunned he could hardly speak. It didn’t take him long to decide that this custom built engine would soon be residing in the engine bay of his Gen 1 Camaro. Our thanks go to David Butcher from the Frankston Engine Centre for making this great prize available. Also thanks to all the following people and businesses that contributed components or services to make our engine ‘ready to fire’ as displayed at tonight’s draw.

            • Tim Fletcher
            • Mark Mc Donald Automotive
            • Eagle Auto Parts
            • Col Warren Automotive
            • Creative Custom Cars
            • ACDelco
            • Bill Duyvestyn

Joan from Safety Beach was the next winner and chose the BF Goodrich tyre voucher from American Used. Mark was rapt to claim the Hoppers Stoppers prize and was soon in discussion with Peter Koning discussing brake upgrade options for his ’63 Galaxie. Ray was pleased to pack the A/C components in the trunk of his ’32 roadster for the trip back to Healesville and lastly Gary collected the Media Blasting prize.
Lots of very happy Cruisers.

April Cruise Night

Next cruise night falls on April 7th which also happens to be Easter Tuesday. With daylight saving finishing over the Easter weekend it’ll also be darker earlier. We’ll be at the Homemaker Centre as usual.

With the end of daylight saving we’d like to say thank you and goodbye to the Mt Martha Rotary Club for another summer. They've not only kept the hungries away with their sausage sizzle but helped many entrants find a spot to park when the car park was filling up. They’ll be back in October when daylight saving returns.

Here’s some photos from Graeme Hutson.
