Hi, I've just got my mini ready for rego, sat in a shed for 26 years, I'm looking to join the Mini Car Club of NSW, do I need to be a member for a certain amount of time before getting Historic plates ? was hoping to bring it for its first run to the day out.

I don't think they have that rule now. Check MCC website where they have the steps fairly well laid out and forms to download and fill in.

We're planning on bringing three vehicles on Sunday. Only trouble is that one will be coming on the back of a truck, with another being carried on a trailer behind the same truck. To get the one off the table top requires that we can back up to a loading dock or at least a loading ramp to unload and reload on Sunday. Is there anyone in the MITG group know of such a facility in the general area around Kembla Grange? The height of the table top is 900mm off the ground. Maybe pm me so that everyone else doesn't need to get involved in this discussion?
Thanks!

Just to confirm, if someone suggests somewhere offsite but local, can the car then be driven on the road to the venue?

Or do you actually need to be able to unload onsite?

Yes, Phill, the car is able to be driven from the unload site after being unloaded.

In relation to David's request for a location to off load a car from the table truck tray:

Comment:
No suggestions have been made so the only option I can think of is to offer my SCA steel ramps rated at 340Kg per ramp, which can handle a mini across the two ramps. If there are no other suggestions then please advise me on DavdE's email so I can discuss if this will work for him. There is a long kerbside location out front of my house where a truck can be parked & if he is coming on Saturday the two cars can be parked in my back yard that has a locked gate. There is also a spoon drain running adjacent to my house in a park that can provide a lower offload position to assist with the angle of drive on/off.
