We are very excited to advise that the long awaited Club history book has been released!
This is a very high quality book of 400 pages, including over 800 photographs, many in colour and many never before published. Material covered includes the veteran era of motoring, the origins and development of the Club as well as the extraordinary history of the Club since its formation in 1955.
The cost of the book is $45 to Club members, or $60 for non-members plus postage if applicable. If you have any enquires, or wish to purchase a copy please contact the Registrar using the following form, and we will make contact with you.
The Veteran Car Club of Australia (Victoria) was founded in 1955 and caters for those who are interested in Cars, Commercial Vehicles and Motorcycles manufactured before January 1st 1919. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in these early vehicles. It is definitely not a requirement to own a veteran vehicle, membership of the club is a great way to enjoy a common interest and a fascinating hobby.
The Veteran Car Club of Australia (Victoria) hold 3 major events a year:
- RACV Veteran Car Club Annual Rally – generally held in November each year
- RACV Mid Winter Rally – generally held in July each year
- RACV 1 & 2 Cylinder Rally – generally held in March each year
We also organise day runs, mid week events and other weekend events, such as the Four or More Rally, make sure to check our coming events for further details.
AVCCA NATIONAL RALLY FORBES NSW
You are invited to join the 2018 National Veteran Tour which is currently being organised by the Newcastle Branch of the VCCA (NSW). The Tour is proposed to run as a hub event from the beautiful town of Forbes in the Central West of NSW. Daily runs will be on roads that are well suited to veteran motoring, following routes that are flat to gently undulating.
We are in the process of negotiating places of interest, accommodation options, routes etc and approximate costs will be listed in our first newsletter later this year.
To assist with planning we are now seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) for the 2018 Veteran Tour to be held between the 23rd September and 28th September 2018. The Tour is open to veteran vehicles built before the end of 1918.
