Great complimenting photos too from their Senior Staff Photographer and their Mr Cronulla, Johnny-on-the-spot - John Veage.

Report: 5th Annual Sylvanvale Pre-WWII Vintage Car Show

Greetings all,

It is with great pleasure that I can report to you that our 5th Sylvanvale Pre-WWII Vintage Car Show held in Cronulla Mall yesterday was a HUGE success.

From the moment that I opened my eyes at 0430 early on Sunday morning & looked out my bedroom window to see what the weather was like we were under severe threat that it would once again rain & spoil all of the hard work that goes into organising an event like this in an open air environment.

However the GODS were with us, apart from a few very light spots of rain during the day we managed to enjoy the fruits of all our hard work to present to the public an absolutely magnificent free Community Event. 


For all those 30,000 PLUS Vintage Car enthusiasts that strolled through Cronulla Mall & Peryman Square to drool over the 68 Classic Vintage vehicles that were on display on the tiles in Cronulla.

May I take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers that worked tirelessly all day to make our event such a success.

A BIG thank you also goes to all those proud Vintage Car owners that devoted their time & effort to show off their PRIDE & Joy of yesterday to the swarming crowds.

It gives me so much pleasure to organise an event such as this BECAUSE it raises money for a very good cause 'The Sylvanvale Foundation'.

My parents were the foundation members of this wonderful organisation 70-years ago.

Today, in 2019, the Sylvanvale Foundation cares for 750 people with disabilities to help those that are less fortunate than ourselves to reach their potential in life, and I am so proud & delighted to be part of that organisation.

I must also thank the Sutherland Shire Council, Cronulla Rotary, the Sylvanvale Foundation & their staff, all the volunteers & every one else that helped make this day such a success.

A special 'BIG THANKS' to our wonderful Sponsors that selflessly donated their hard earn't cash to support this event, I am forever thankful.

My colleague, Steve Core who helps me tirelessly with support & looks after all of our social media business will write a more in depth report on yesterday's event, because my job has not finished as yet.

I must hit the roads & intersections of the Sutherland Shire to remove all the 100 Corflute signs that I placed around the 'SHIRE' to promote this GREAT event.

Stay safe, thanks for supporting this unique free community family event once again for such a worthy cause.

Cheers

Ken Warburton

Show Founder & Curator

Cronulla Mall Promotion

Today we held a successful promotional day for our upcoming Car Show in the Cronulla Mall. 

Like any vintage car outing you are constantly challenged with having to face the elements and today in Cronulla we had quite a few rain showers move through the area.


Early morning set-up in the Cronulla Mall outside the iconic
Cronulla Post Office - note the threatening skies above

Our Car Show's Curator, Ken Warburton brought out two of his personal cars to put on show for the day.

The cars were a magnificently restored Vintage 1930 Model A Ford Special Delivery Van and a rare, dual rear-wheeled 1929 AA Ford Truck.

It was a chance to raise awareness for our Show and our benefactor charity the Sylvanvale Foundation. And a chance to put a couple of vintage cars on show for the many Shire locals who shop and dine in the Cronulla Mall daily.


Cronulla Rotarians and Car Show volunteers, Ken Warbuton and
Neil Newbould point out the finer points of the 1929 Model A Ford
truck to some of Cronulla's finest & inquisitive constabulary.

Today we flew the banners of one of generous & annual sponsors; Color Tile of Miranda. If you live in the Shire and are in the need for tile or bathroom solutions - you can't go past the friendly & professional team at Color Tile.

word in the Cronulla Mall about our upcoming Car Show.

The two vehicles exhibited today form part of the close to 80 vehicles that will be on display on Sunday 14th April, 2019 at our 5th Annual Pre-WII Vintage Car Show in Cronulla.
