Classic Features
By Gary Porter

When the Classic Chevy Club of Nova Scotia was formed in 1981, it was anticipated that, although it was based in the metro Halifax area, the club would be regional in nature. On this basis it was acknowledged that some members would not be able to take part in club activities on a regular basis. Therefore it was felt that a regular newsletter to keep all members informed was essential. Things like minutes of meetings, the grapevine and features on members classics were all important elements to keep members, especially those that lived a distance from the metro area, in the "loop".

Putting out a good newsletter is the responsibility of the editor. However, without input from the members, the content can sometimes be thin. Since the club started the membership has been polled to find out how the club is doing. The newsletter has always been important to the membership and articles like "Classic Feature" continue to be popular. Material for this feature has relied on submissions from the membership. Many Classics have been featured over the years, but many have not. Several approaches to keeping this going have been tried, but only with short term success.
Now we are trying something new. I'm going to be a sort of roaming reporter. As we travel around during the summer, I will photograph members cars and obtain information to write an article. All you have to do is use your car! Obviously, there are some members who aren't located in the Maritimes, so our paths may not cross. Members are still free to submit pictures and information on their cars for articles. This can be sent to:

Gary Porter
3615 Leaman Street
Halifax, N.S.
B3K 3Z8 or (preferred)

I would also like to do features on project cars, so I will come to your house, if necessary and if possible, to get pictures. In closing, I just want to point out that there are 73 members with 52 classics and 76 "other toys". Doing the math, at two per newsletter, and four newsletters per year, it will take 18½ years to do a feature on everyone's car. That's assuming no more additions to the club! I'm not making an 18½ year commitment to this, but let's see how far we get.
