The Clas­sic Holden Car Club of the North­ern Ter­ri­tor y is a group of peo­ple of a ll ages wit h a com­mon in­ter­est in old Hold­ens, gen­era lly over 30 years of age. The club started in 1998 as t he EH-HR Holden Club and was changed in 2000 to be­come the Clas­sic Holden Car Club of t he North­ern Ter­ri­tor y In­cor­po­rated to in­volve a greater cross-sec­tion of Holden own­ers. Mem­ber­ship cur­rent ly stands at around 130.

The club caters for both orig­i­nal and mod­i­fied cars in var y ing con­di­tion. Not a ll cars are pris­tine as each owner has dif fer­ent idea ls, tastes and use for t heir cars. Mem­ber ve­hi­cles range from ever yday hacks to award-win­ning show pieces.

This club r uns a litt le dif fer­ent to ot hers as we don’t rea lly have meet­ings, t he com­mit­tee meets reg­u­larly but as a club we just have monthly f unc­tions for peo­ple to at­tend wit hout get­ting bogged down by de­tails and polit ics. All f inan­cia l mem­bers can at­tend com­mit­tee meet­ings if they choose and AGMs are a given and gen­era l meet­ings are ca lled when t he need arises. For us, time has shown t hat it is a good way to run a club.

While its mem­bers are mainly from Dar win, Palmer­ston and the rura l ar­eas, we also have mem­bers in Alice Springs, Kather­ine, Nhu­lun­buy and Jabiru.

This fam­ily-ori­ented group hosts reg ular events in­clud­ing r uns, ra llies and show ‘n’ shine days as well as so­cia l f unc­tions such as cricket matches, ten pin bowl­ing and quiz nights. The club pro­duces reg­u­lar news­let­ters t hat de­tail ac­tiv ities. Mem­bers are will­ing to share t heir adv ice on a ll tech­nica l mat­ters.
