Bay Of Plenty Vintage Car Club - Driving Our Future

For Vintage & Classic Car Enthusiasts in Tauranga & the Bay of Plenty

The Bay of Plenty Branch of the Vintage Car Club has around 400 members and is one of the few branches in New Zealand with a growing membership. You don’t need to own a club eligible vehicle to become a member. We cater for all cars, trucks and motorcycles over 30 years old. We have many members that may have owned a vintage car in the past or may even just hold an interest in old cars. We welcome anyone who has an interest in the preservation and enjoyment of historic and classic vehicles.


Each month we hold a meeting attended very often by at least 100 members and quite often more. Our meeting format is informal and often has a speaker of interest. It could be said that many meetings turn out to more social than formal.

Normally we have two monthly driving events. One being on a Wednesday each month, and the other is held on the last Sunday of the month. Both events are well attended and travel to a destination of interest.

There are also other events held as an extra to the monthly runs such as car shows or fund raising events.

Also monthly is a Noggin and Natter event held in either Te Puke or Tauranga
