AboutThe Bay of Plenty Vintage Car Club is a branch of the Vintage Car Club of New Zealand and by joining a branch you become a member of the VCC NZ New Zealand’s Foremost Historic Motoring Authority.
The Vintage Car Club of NZ is one of the largest motoring clubs in New Zealand. With over 8,000 members and many thousands of vehicles and motorcycles listed on the club’s database, the Vintage Car Club of New Zealand offers something for everyone. You don’t need to own a vintage vehicle to become a member – our club caters for all cars, trucks and motorcycles over 30 years old.
The club has 36 branches throughout New Zealand and runs a variety of events to cater for its members: tar seal trundles, rural runs, hill climbs, swap meets and speed events as well as regular club evenings around the country for a yarn with likeminded enthusiasts.
It’s members share a common appreciation for fascination of age, the individuality and the functional elegance of vehicles from a by-gone era.
The basic rules are that the vehicle is over 30 years of age and not modified. In other words. As the manufacturer made it.
Club eligible vehicle classes include Veteran, Vintage, Post War, Post 1960, Post 1980, Commercial, Motorcycle and Historic Racing vehicles. Factory Built, and Historic Racing Vehicles (HRV) which are at least in their thirtieth year since their year of original construction, plus factory built racing cars no longer in production.
WE ALSO INCLUDE CLASSIC VEHICLES BUT THEY MUST COMPLY WITH THE CLUB ACCEPTABLE RULES.
Period Specials or Reproduction Vehicles
