Who are we, What do we do, Why do we do it?
WASMA is a group of ordinary people that in one way or another have
been working to improve the modified vehicle scene in Western Australia
over a long time in many various ways.
The work we have been doing is purely for the love of the cars and the culture.
This group decided to form a peak body for Street Machines to join forces and
coordinate their efforts and create a unified body that the Authorities can contact and liaise with in relation to all things Street Machining and through the membership of clubs,
give Street Machiners a strong and united voice.
Restorers have the CMC, Rodders have the ASRF. These peak bodies have existed and operated for many years and have achieved a lot to help their members enjoy their cars.
WASMA is the Street Machiners version of these bodies.
What are we working on right now?
1. Concessional licensing. The concept of this has been announced by the Government and is still being worked on by the DoT. An exact implementation date has not yet been set, but is expected to happen in the first half of 2021.
2. Vehicle Modifications in WA. In WA modifying a vehicle or getting
one that has already been done interstate can be a mine field. We have a
team of people working with various government departments to revise
how modified vehicles are assessed in relation to being allowed on public
roads. This obviously covers many areas and is quite difficult. Recognition of interstate and local engineers “sign offs” and the abolition of the “180kw/ton” rule are just a couple of examples of the work going on.
