NA­TIONAL HEROES

Street Machine - - Legend -

PAUL Kan­nane formed the HK-HT-HG Own­ers Car Club of SA on Face­book in October 2011. It rapidly grew to of­fer reg­u­lar monthly cruises and ac­tiv­i­ties, and by 2014 they joined an in­for­mal Na­tion­als com­mit­tee (pic­tured) with rep­re­sen­ta­tives from other states to be­gin dis­cus­sions for an event. As it co­in­cided with the 50th an­niver­sary of the HK, 2018 was the cho­sen kick-off year for the Na­tion­als. “The big­gest hur­dle we had was mov­ing the club from just a so­cial Face­book club to a reg­is­tered and in­cor­po­rated iden­tity,” said Paul. “Once that was achieved we could start the for­mal plan­ning stages and form a Na­tion­als com­mit­tee; it was then full steam ahead from there.”
