Welcome to the Adelaide Hills Motor Restorers Club website
The Adelaide Hills Motor Restorers Club was formed in 1984 by a group of people with a common interest in preserving the machinery of our past. In particular, cars, motorcycles, trucks, tractors, stationary engines and machinery manufactured in South Australia. Membership is open to anyone who shares this interest whether or not they own any machinery.
Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month at 8 p.m. in our von Doussa Clubrooms, corner of Cameron Street and Druids Avenue, Mount Barker.The clubrooms are also open on the evening of the first Friday of each month, for members to get together informally.
The club owns a collection of machinery, which includes a Kaesler Clover Thresher (circa1915), an 8HP Blackstone Engine (circa1904), a 4HP Kaesler Engine (circa1920) and a twin cylinder 150HP Blackstone Engine (circa1950). This machinery has been restored and is maintained by club members. The club’s annual rally, "Power of the Past", is held on the first weekend in March, at the Mount Barker Oval. Other clubs join our members to display engines, machinery and vehicles to the public.
The club's official newsletter, "Tappet Chatter", is published monthly.
