Welcome to the NSW web site of the Bolwell Car Club of Australia (BCCA)

"It's 2019! And the January 2019 edition of Retroautos magazine is now online on Shannons Club. Click on this LINK to see the magazine.

Our first issue of 2019 reveals previously secret photos of the design proposals for the FJ Holden. These proposals were developed in 1950 in the USA, three years before the FJ was released.

What's a pink FJ Holden doing at GM's 1955 Motorama? We find out.

Plus, we showcase Chrysler's Plainsman station wagon dream car and bring you more Copy-Cat car advertisements from the collection of Nairn Hindhaugh.

I hope you enjoy the magazine. It is published with passion and with pride.

All the best for 2019!

CMC Update....

As reported earlier the CMC has been active with technical representative on the Vehicle Standards Working Group, for those members wanting to restore a car by replacing the body and/or major components without having to make it into a "new car".
