Drive Day April 22 – Farmers Arms Hotel, Beeac.

Our drive day this month is to Beeac.  The owner of the hotel has a car collection which we hope to view on the day.  We have done this one before and it was worth re-visiting. We will leave from The Avenue, Spotswood (just off Westgate Freeway) and travel to the Service Centre (outbound from Melbourne) for coffee.  Some may choose to join us there rather than drive to Spotswood.…

May Drive Day – Gisborne

The Good Folk* of Gisborne came out to welcome the cavalcade of Renaults as the club came to town for market day.  RCCV members and friends spent a nice part of the morning of May 7th having a wander through the 250+ stalls on the social drive day.  The Gisborne market is great and not just because it is part of GREAT – Gisborne Region Events, Activities and Tourism. The market connoisseurs among us pronounced it ‘one of the great markets’ and ‘well worth going to the far / near (delete as appropriate) side of Melbourne to get to’. * Jackie and Charlie Stewart Having had our fill of the market and coffee from the fine coffee dispensing places, Paul led us off to Lancefield for lunch. 15 Renaults might…

April Drive Day – Mornington

Twenty intrepid members braved the cold and rain at Bunnings Keysborough as we met up for April’s drive day. Fortunately the skies cleared as we headed south down the Mornington Peninsula. Taking the roads less travelled, our first stop was the village of Mt Eliza for coffee at the Cafe on the Mount. It constantly surprises me how you can live around Melbourne for most of your life and still find yourself standing in delightful little corners that you  never knew about. I mean, I knew about Mt Eliza, just not how sweet the ‘village’ is. More roads less travelled saw us wend our way down past Balnarring and Shoreham to Flinders where clear skies and a chill wind awaited us. See, even on an overcast day a line of Renaults is…
