Club History

Past Events

In 2021 a new social club page was created to replace the public group and is now used (along side the members only group) to promote our events. A summary of these events has been captured here:

In 2012 the club started getting into the social media world and started up a public Facebook group. This was later followed by a members only Facebook group in 2015. By 2021 the public group was retired but still remains online for historical purposes. Events were promoted through these groups, a summary of these has been captured here:

From 2009 until 2015, our club forums were used to discuss and share photos of our events. The forums eventually became superseded by Facebook, but still remain available for historical puposes.

The Eastside Cruisers Car Club was established in 2002 by a small group of like minded friends. The club quickly evolved and grew year by year. Click on the links below for an overview of early years:

BBQ Trailer

The BBQ trailer was a crazy concept born on a lazy arvo...the idea was to create a BBQ trailer for Eastside Cruisers to take on cruises/events. The concept was to use the rear half of a car with the BBQ in the boot and retain the rear seats for visual purposes as well guessed it...seating!

The Hall of Fame

This area is dedicated to all the special and loved cars that our members, both past and present, have since parted with. To make it into the Hall of Fame, the cars must have been active within the club, attending cruises & events. To these cars we wish to bestow the honour of being immortalized in our Hall of Fame so they may always be remembered. Click here to view the Hall of Fame Cars.
