About Us

The Canberra Hot Rod Association (Inc) was formed way back in 1983 to bring together all club and individual Hot Rodders in the ACT area. The main players in the formation of the original CHRA (or CSRA as it was known then) were Dennis Moreau (vale Dennis, one of Canberra's most prominent drag racers and enthusiastic Hot Rodder) and Alan Cooper (chairman of the TAC since the early seventies and a founding member of the Meteors, one of the longest surviving Hot Rod clubs in Australia and the current ACT State Director of the ASRF).

Membership

The CHRA has evolved into what it is today - an open forum for all interested Hot Rodders. We invite all enthusiasts of modified, pre 48 Hot Rods and pre 65 Customs to our meetings, and that includes those who are already in another club.  There is no probationary period for full  membership.

The current membership base is strong and extremely diverse, with garage scenes taking in some of the cars currently under construction, outings and Rod runs.  Annual membership fees are just $20 per person. Each year the CHRA sponsors the Canberra Rod and Kustom Krooze (CRAKK Run). This is Canberra's premier Rod Run, held over the long weekend in January.

History

A lot of rods and customs have been built and driven in and around the ACT area. Visit our HISTORY page to see our collection of images in a slideshow album. This is by no means a complete list, and is being added to as more details become available. Contact the Webmaster if you would like to be included.
