Get involved with your club!

Recently we have appointed our new committee however we are still looking for a new Vice President to join us. Mark has done a great job over the past year and we are looking to support the new VP with a greater investment in membership technology to simplify the role. Mark has done a great job and will continue to be a great part of our club.

Here is a message to you all from the man himself.

Good afternoon everyone. I am just reminding you, that I have stepped down as Vice President of TCCAV. I invite anyone who is interested in stepping into this important role, to contact myself, or another club committee member. The club requires a Vice President and if someone can see themselves stepping up, it will certainly ease the workload of all other committee members to focus on bringing bigger and better events to the club. As a committee member, you get to have a say in all aspects of TCCAV.

Thankyou, Mark Allen.

If you would like more information on the role or think it might be for you please contact Frank Ferrantino at or Mark at

Event Coverage: All Toyota Winterfest Part 3

For Part 3 of our All Toyota Winterfest 2015 coverage it’s all about the classic rollas!

Corolla’s have remained on of the most popular Toyota’s across their entire lifespan and there was no shortage of fine over 25 year old examples at Winterfest.


The first gen Corollas have become a timeless classic. Petite and well proportioned with beautiful chrome accents.


In Sprinter configuration there are as fresh as a Tic Tac.

Honda power propelled this beast down from Sydney. Such a clean conversion must be commended.


The forth generation Corolla took a drastic change in styling adopting the square box craze of the 80’s.

Variety in the model line was always a Corolla strength and the gen five platform didn’t disappoint. FWD, RWD, sedan, hatch, liftback, 3, 4 or 5 doors, there was no shortage of choice. Today with the addition of personal imports there is more than you can poke a stick at.
