ASRF WA welcomes Wayne Franceschi into the role of WA Divisional Director after he was elected to the role at the 2019 AGM.

Wayne emerged himself into hot rodding in 1998 when he bought a 1934 Chevy project car from the late Brian French. Initially a member of the West Coast Hot Rod Club, he participated in local events including the Sandgroper Nationals, before selling the car for a brief hiatus. Returning to the fold more recently, he now cruises Perth in a black ’32 Ford 5w coupe, accompanied by wife Jennie and a small clan of dachshunds!

Currently a member of Comet Bay Rodders Inc based in the Mandurah region, Wayne’s keen to bring some of his corporate experience to the role and guide the Federation in embracing new, modern systems.

“Given the world we live in, we can’t be casual any more,” he reasons.
