Let’s Go Cruisin’ Cruisers
Like the idea of getting even more benefits from participating
at Let's Go Cruisin' events?
Then join us in becoming a Let's Go Cruisin’ “Cruiser”.
Let's Go Cruisin’ Inc. Formed in 2005 by a small team of long time car enthusiasts, is not just another car club. We got together to develop social activities that would encourage owners of chrome bumper cars to get out Cruisin' more often. We've worked up events with a Cruisin' theme, always with the aim of providing good value and with something for every member of the family.
Our motto: Fun with family, friends & favourite cars.
What's it all about?
We didn’t form LGC to become a ‘big’ car club by growing our membership. Our objective is to host simple, low cost events with a cruisin’ theme for the enjoyment of pre’ 75 chrome bumper car owners. We do the planning and the work for our events with our current dedicated members, while you get to enjoy getting together with other owners passionate about their cars, pick up a prize, visit a location or town that you might not normally visit, make new friends, check out the latest cool rides and so on.
But we do see real value in building strong relationships with car enthusiasts that like our way of doing things and want to participate in our activities regularly.
So we developed the Cruiser subscription that works like most reward programs. We do the work necessary to host events and our Cruiser subscriber’s gives us the confidence to plan new and better events. We aim to return the favour by offering Cruisers extra benefits when subscribing each year. The more events you come along to, the greater the benefit you’re likely to receive. Put simply, our Cruiser program is aimed at giving you the opportunity to get a little more involved in our activities, and all you have to do is enjoy yourselves.
By rewards we mean:
- Free entry in the annual Grand Prize draw (see below for the details)
- Free entry to the Peninsula cruise night
- Special 'Cruiser only' giveaways at our events
- Discounts on our range of merchandise
- Deals and discounts on sponsors products and services
- Invitations to Cruiser only events
What's involved in becoming a Cruiser?
When signing up as a Cruiser you are not joining a car club. It operates as a ‘rewards’ program with no obligations or responsibilities on your part when subscribing for a year. It’s all about the benefits you can obtain when attending any of our events, what level of discounted purchases you make from our sponsors or how lucky you are in the many Cruiser prize draws we conduct.
How much does it cost?
There is no joining fee, just an annual subscription fee of $20.00. Subscriptions fall due on the 30th June each year, there is no pro-rata discount.
What do I get in my new Cruiser pack?
- A Cruiser ID card used to identify you as a Cruiser at our events.
- A Cruiser window sticker for the current year to display on your ride
- Details of our exclusive Cruiser merchandise range
- Information about sponsors deals
How do I join up?
To become a LGC Cruiser is easy, just download a copy of the application form, complete it and bring it along to one of our events and Kerin Duyvestyn will help you process your application and you’ll get to go home with your Cruiser pack. Or mail in your application and we’ll get you processed and mail back your Cruiser pack. Place the window sticker on your car and you’re away. If you have more than one car you’d like to bring to our events, just let Kerin know and she’ll arrange extra window stickers.

Club Permit Registration.
Your Cruiser subscription cannot provide access to VicRoad’s club permit registration.
When subscribing as a Cruiser, you’ve made a decision to get more involved with us and we greatly appreciate the support this shows for what we do, but we wish to make clear that you are not joining a ‘car club’ as a full or associate member. Your Cruiser subscription is not recognized as a ‘financial membership’ in Let’s Go Cruisin’ Inc. [the legal entity we operate under] by VicRoads, which is a necessary requirement to access the club permit ’90 day logbook’ registration system. The aim of our Cruiser subscription is to provide extra rewards to entrants who regularly attend our events. We recognize that the majority of entrants at our will be members of many different car clubs and associations and it is through these clubs that VicRoads want car owners to obtain club permit registration. We are happy to provide assistance on how to go about obtaining club permit registration with other car clubs or organizations that provide it.
Cruisers without pre '75 cars.
It is not a pre requisite that to join us as a Cruiser subscriber that you own a pre’75 car. We want to encourage participation in our favourite hobby and understand that many enthusiasts may have sold their pre’75 car, be building a new car or just want to learn more about our hobby with the intent of acquiring a pre’75 car. As a Cruiser without a pre’75 car in your garage, you can still enjoy the many of the benefits we offer, including discounts from our sponsors, free lucky entrant’s ticket at our monthly Cruise Night, entry in special Cruiser prize draws at our bigger events. However, if the car you come along in, does not meet our pre ‘75 entry guidelines, please understand that your Cruiser status does not guarantee the entry of your car to that event.
We will attempt to provide you when possible with priority parking, such as at monthly Cruise Nights, where you can enter to reserved parking area for entrant’s cars, but you’ll be directed to park in the paddock area. We would appreciate your co operation with this request.
If at any time of your Cruiser subscription year, you become dissatisfied with how we classify your car for event entry, you can request and will receive a full refund of your year’s subscription.
The Fine Print - There's always some!
Let's Go Cruisin' reserves the right to not accept any application and to terminate the arrangement at anytime. The annual fee will be refunded upon the return of the ID card within 14 days of being advised, that your Cruiser benefits have been cancelled. To accept the benefits that come from being a Cruiser, we expect that you adopt our code of conduct. They’re not too hard, just responsible behaviour consistent with family oriented events. They are available for your information on this web site. The discounts offered by sponsors or participating businesses are determined by each individual organization and subject to change at any time. If there are any changes to benefits we will advise them on this web sites news page.
