Classic cars on the docks

27 Feb 2019

Some of the state’s finest vintage vehicles descended on Docklands in February, as the Alma Doepel Supporters Club played host to a motor enthusiast meet-up.

On February 9, the Victorian Federation of Veteran, Vintage & Classic Vehicle Clubs met at the Shed 2 location for a special meeting of its clubs.

Cars were displayed in the normally gated area, before a lunch was held for 80-100 delegates.

Alma supporter’s club committee member Bill Reid said the event was a huge success.

“These events don’t just happen and this one took a fair bit of behind the scenes negotiations to make it work,” he said.

The Alma Doepel is a 116-year-old ship that was once used as a World War II supply vessel, and now resides in Docklands where it is undergoing an extensive $3.3 million restoration.

The restoration is into its final stages and Alma volunteers guided the visitors through its progress throughout the day.

Following this, the federation voted to make a generous donation of $1000 to restoration efforts.

The money will used to purchase two spotted gum hull planks, with the club’s honour board reflecting the federation’s donation.
