Welcome to Tamworth Vintage Car Club Inc.
We were formed in 1981 to support members in the restoration, preservation and use of Historic vehicles.
Our objectives are:
- To promote and encourage the restoration, preservation and use of heritage vehicles.
- Enjoyment through participation in runs, rallies and events.
- Display of vehicles for fundraising and charitable purposes.
- Encourage retention of heritage vehicles and memorabilia in Australia
Our Club is a non-profit organisation that currently has 60 members. Between them they own 73 historic vehicles, which range from the 1920’s to 1980’s. These are all passenger vehicles comprising cars and utilities. We do not cater for motorcycles or farm machinery.
We are recognised by Transport for NSW as an Historic Vehicle Club. This enables us to provide our members with access to Historic Vehicle Registration and the 60 Day Log Book. Vehicles are required to be 30 years of age from the year of manufacture, and in original manufactured specification. We undertake our own vehicle inspections each December by a fully qualified vehicle inspector. Vehicles can be barn finds, restored or just well loved examples.
Our club meets on the third Thursday of each month at 7.30pm. The meeting venue has had to be changed due to COVID-19 restrictions so please refer to EVENTS for details on the next meeting.
We also arrange 2 regular runs each month being a Monthly Run on the Sunday following each meeting, and a midweek Lunch Run on the first Thursday of each month. In addition we also have special runs for feature events such as social gatherings, and attend shows and display our vehicles for charity purposes.
The Tamworth Spark is a hard copy bi-monthly magazine distributed to all members. It includes details of events, runs, updates on heritage motoring, and feature articles on restorations plus other information to keep members updated.
Our Club is affiliated with the Council of Heritage Motor Clubs, which is a peak body representing heritage motoring clubs throughout NSW. Through our Club and the Council, members become part of the process that monitors and drives the evolution and protection of heritage motoring.
