About

The 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.
