SHANE Angus was re-elected president of the Jamaica Classic Car Club (JCCC) at the club's annual general meeting (AGM) at the Jampro Business Auditorium in St Andrew last Sunday. His executive body also retained its post.

“I'm elated at the member's confidence in my administration and I will continue giving my all,” he told the Jamaica Observer's Auto magazine. “ I want to thank all the parties involved in making 2017 a good year for the club.”

Angus, who is in his fourth year at the organisation's helm, said the club's membership has grown under his watch.

“Last year alone we attracted 61 new members... and participation of members have increased,” he said.

The executive comprises Jason Lawson and Naresh Potopsingh, first and second vice-presidents, respectively; Michael McFarlane — club secretary; Paul Gammon — assistant secretary; Albert Rickman — treasurer; and Rae Parchment — assistant treasurer.

The classic car president said he will continue to pursue projects in the interests of the club.

“We will continue to generate revenue for the club from weddings, parties, photo shoots and video shoots,” he said. “The focus is realising key benefits for our membership in the areas of back licence and road tax. I believe these things are critical in getting classic cars back on the road and increasing our membership. We also hope to partner with various corporate partners for charity through next year,” said Angus.

As customary at the AGM, the JCCC took time out to celebrate its membership by presenting the Clubman's Trophy to the member who best defined the spirit of the club throughout the year. The accolade went to Kingston member Tony Lopez.

“He has been one of the most reliable members. He's almost always at every event with his 1970 MG,” said Angus.
