Colchester Vintage Motor Club

Formed in 1967 by a group of young enthusiasts, the club now has over 200 members owning a wide range of vehicles, all of which were manufactured before the end of 1939.

It is not a requirement of membership, however, to own a pre-war vehicle, but entry to certain events is restricted to members driving such a vehicle.

The term ‘ Vintage’ as defined by this club applies to vehicles manufactured before 31st December 1939 for inclusion in the register.

A wide variety of activities are organised throughout the year, a monthly meeting taking place generally on the third Thursday in the Colchester or Ipswich areas.

Winter meetings may take the form of illustrated talks, film shows, quizzes and antiques evenings, but in the summer months motoring events predominate, road runs and an annual camping weekend are typical of the events occupying the warmer days or evenings.

Motor cycles and commercial vehicles are most welcome in addition to the more usual cars.

A monthly, newsletter is produced, keeping members in touch with events both locally and nationally, as well as providing a forum for their views and experiences.

The annual subscription is payable on the 1st of January each year and there are two classes of membership full and junior.
