Auto Hobby Club

Auto Hobby Club

The Auto Hobby Club welcomes everyone!

The CFB Esquimalt Auto Club welcomes everyone, from master mechanics to tepid tinkerers curious about exploring the hobby. A wide variety of enthusiasts participate in the club, including owners of motorcycles, muscle cars, mini-trucks, 4x4s, European and Asian imports, classic collectors, track cars, and even the odd boat. Come make friends and learn about your car and others’ while regaling in stories of automotive adventures and mechanical mishaps.
 
Our workshop is a communal workspace for members who want to save money on automotive maintenance, repair, and modifications. We have the tools, equipment, and on-hand experience to help you along with most any project you are undertaking, whether it be simple checks, inspections, and diagnoses, to engine Re&Re. Want a second opinion on a repair quote from an in-town mechanic? Other members can offer their opinions on where you can save money, easily do work yourself, or what’s probably best left to a professional.
 
Members are expected to perform their own maintenance and wrenching, though other members are often willing to assist if you’re stuck. The workshop is staffed by an on-duty custodian during business hours, who can help you find the tools and equipment you need to get the job done, arrange for vehicle storage, take payment, and may also offer sage advice with a touch of sarcasm. Save time, money, your back, and your sanity; come work in a heated, dry, well-provisioned shop with friends and helping hands.
 
Our newest addition, the Auto Club Riders Group, has expert members who can help you learn and hone motorcycle riding skills. Come participate in group rides and training sessions where you’ll make friends and gain confidence in your two-wheeled abilities. They also have specialty motorcycle tools and hoists to assist you in keeping your steed road ready and avoid costly dealership maintenance bills.
