Speaking of Ian leifman he also had a really nice 32 roadster pick-up.
I would,nt mind betting he still owns it.
If you see it on a trailer dial 000 its probably stolen.

Ian had a 35 roadster and Dennis a 36 sedan.
Geelong Street Rodders have been around since 1973 and we still have some members who have been around since then.
They are Ian Harris, Frank Fiscalini, Peter Raines, Bob Astill, Terry Dargue and I think John Davis.
I first joined Geelong Street Rodders in 1984 with a 38 coupe.


Yep Mick John Davis was a founding member had a V8 1960 Falcon Ute.

And don't forget Fergie,

These older clubs have an unbeleivable ability to hang onto members for quite some time..

Please remember that i am not involved with the THUNDERBIRDS anymore, moreso due to living up in Kilmore and not owning a vehicle before that was elegible for the club..

But this is a list of members that i can think of that are still active members of the club that were there when i used to go to meeting as an ankle bitter with dad 20,25,30 yrs ago..

Bob Dykes
Denis Jones
John Bowker(Shark)
Bazza Fletcher
Leo Spessot
Bazza Cordner
Rick Lee(DAD)
Calvin Pope
Mark Perry
Noel Hayse
Leon Carr
Alan Whelan
Roy Fregon
Richard Chandeler
Steve Molnar


Now i know there are more that are still active, and i am sure that Leo will let us know of more, but that is still an impresive list of people to be still active after at least 15 years as a member.
I have not added one member there that has not been a member for AT LEAST 15 yrs

I remember the day that Mark Perry joined as a young bloke with his 39 chev and him copping sh.t for joining the "old mens club", now he is old, i spose..

Remember too that if not for the unfortunate passing of Datsfa, he too would still be there as well...

That is what i can give ya..

Hows that ??

I may stand corrected but i dont recall the Souters having a wrecking yard , however former Bay Rodder , Brian Kenyon had Harvey Motor Wreckers in Baxter , which is next door to Sommerville.


That's the one, but I always saw Lenny there working on one car or another. I didn't get to meet most of the Bay Rodders due to my constant moving around, but I needed to get my 27 T going reliably, so I spent a lot of time at this wreckers. There was a model A sports coupe in the yard that looked pretty good, and lots of cussos.

Yes Pat I met Leighton Rawlings at a club run back in 76, Leightons old 34 sedan is now owned by Scott (46 Deluxe).
From memory on the Saturday night of that run we went to a do at Neil Talbot"s place in Bendigo, Neil had a very nice restored 34 sedan which I beleive is now owned by Darren Mcgregor, who also has a nice steel 33 three window coupe, the old John Rainbow car.

Tassie too boasts quite a few "old timers" (dare I say it). First and foremost Andy Morris, who like Leo has been to every Nationals in the same car. Although Andy no longer belongs to a club, he did have his own club called Island State Rod Club. He built his A Model Tourer in 1971 and I'd hate to think how many miles he has put on the clock.
Another one is Kerry "Ned" Roberts, also been around since 1971. Originally a member of the Diamonds Rod Club, until it folded and about 5 of there members joined our club, The Challengers. Ned has built about 14 Hot Rods (all Fords) and he hasn't stopped yet. He has a 32 Coupe sitting in the shed and has a chassis sitting at Deuce Customs, he hasn't decided what he wants to put on it! Our newer members could take a leaf out of Ned's book. Our Club has been formed since 1972 but no founding members left, but we do have 4 members with over 25 years service and a couple pushing 20.
We've been around since 1981.
Yours in Rodding

Hi Mike, Been out of Rodding a long time now, just wondering what ever happened to the 34? Congrats on an interesting site, recently looked at a couple of 'A' models, you never know....

And who could forget his '29 (?) Chev Tourer, it's still doing duty with the local wedding car hire mob here in suburban Melbourne, although I don't see it so often as I once did.
