Welcome to Californian Cruisin’

We are a club of  enthusiastic members who are all passionate about American Classic Cars, Hot Rods and Pickups.

Among our members’ rides we have all the major American car manufacturers represented – see some of the cars on the Club Cars gallery.

Benefits of membership

— Conditional and Historic plates

One of the requirements to have a car in the 60 day Registration Scheme is that you must be a registered member of a club that is participating in the scheme. Californian Cruisin Inc. is a participant in the scheme.

It is a requirement of our constitution that members who have a vehicle on Historic or Classic        registration, attend at least 3 events per year. Failure to abide by the constitution will void membership and as such NSW registration.

Monthly club runs

We are a very active club with monthly club runs on the second Sunday of every month (Sunday Cruisin’) in the area of Central Coast, Newcastle and Hunter. The run always includes lunch in some format, sometimes in a café or a pub and sometimes picnic-style catered by us.

See the Sunday Cruisin’ page for some photos of previous runs. See the Events calendar for upcoming runs.

We actively post information on our Events page about other car-related shows and events to keep members informed. These sometimes form the basis of the main Sunday Run or smaller group runs. See us on Facebook as well.

Club  meetings

We have club meetings to notify the club members about any issues that they require to know about and so are able to participate in the decision making towards outcomes. These meeting take place on the first Monday of each month at Toronto Diggers Club starting at 7.00 pm. We normally arrive at 6.00pm and have dinner before hand.

— Extras

 Many of our members enjoy Rock & Roll dancing. Don’t forget “You’re never to old to Rock & Roll”.
