Our Club welcomes new people who have an interest in historic motoring. Ownership of a historic vehicle is not a prequisite for membership.

Prospective members are required to attend at least 3 Club meetings or events to be eligible for membership. When attending, please identify yourself as a prospective new member or visitor so the President can introduce you.

Meetings are held on the third Thursday of each month, and we have 2 car runs per month. One is on the Sunday following the meeting, and the other run is held on the first Thursday of each month.

Application Forms for membership are available at our meetings or events, and you will also be provided with a copy of the Club's Procedures & Policies. This will provide you with good background information on the Club including details on meetings, membership and fees, plus the Club's requirements for any vehicles on concessional registration. 

For people who are new to the historic vehicle movement, the following provides a very brief summary of the 2 types of vehicle registration available in NSW. In simple terms, registration provides you with access to the road network. (Note that a historic vehicle must be 30 years of age or older as from the year of its manufacture). The 2 levels of registration are:

Firstly, there is full registration. This is the same as ordinary motorists have for their day to day vehicles. It entitles you to access the road network at any time, so you can use your vehicle at your pleasure on an unrestricted basis.

Secondly, there is conditional registration. This is very cheap but limits your access to the road network to Club events, or the events of other clubs. You have to be a member of a club recognised by Roads & Maritime Services to obtain concessional registration. It is designed for vehicles over 30 years of age and they must be in as close to original condition as possible. A Log Book Trial is an extension and option of the Concessional Registration scheme. In addition to Club Events, the Log Book Trial allows usage of a vehicle for an additional 60 days per year for hobby and recreational purposes. For more information, click on Log Book Trail. 

In addition to the above, the Classic Vehicle Scheme commenced operation in December 2016. This is designed for modified vehicles 30 years and older and accommodates lightly and heavily modified vehicles. Our Club has taken the view that we are an Historic Vehicle Club, predominately involved with the Historic Vehicle Scheme, namely for vehicles in as close to original condition as feasible. However members of long standing will be supported if they wish to move a lightly modified vehicle, i.e. one that does not require an engineers certification, onto the Classic Vehicle Scheme. Our Club, and our affiliated organisation, is not involved with heavily modified vehicles.      

Our membership fee for new members comprises a Joining Fee of $5 in addition to an Annual Subscription Fee of $45 for the 2018/2019 membership year.  Membership includes a partner and children up to 18 years of age.

A Club uniform which is based on blue colours is available from Uniforms Plus in Dowe Street, Tamworth. Members are encouraged to wear the uniform when representing the Club at events. 

The Tamworth Spark is the Club's magazine and is produced bi-monthly. It is distributed to all members and contains details on past and future events as well as interesting articles and Club news.

The Club operates on a non-profit basis with some proceeds donated to charities, and the balance reinvested in the membership, usually in the form of subsidised events.

Insurance for Voluntary Workers plus Public, Products and Management Liability are all maintained as required by the Commonwealth and State governing clubs.

Historic vehicles are by their very nature of an older era and however well maintained, they have some inherent limitations. With this in mind, the Club conducts its runs and rallies in a casual unhurried manner to ensure full enjoyment and the safe return home of everyone.

So whether you are young and getting concerned with impositions associated with hot rods and street machines, or if you are middle age and looking for something different, or just retired and looking for a new circle of friends and a new pass-time, there are numerous veteran, vintage and classic vehicles available to suit your individual desires and image. It need not be expensive, and can be very rewarding mixing with friends who have a common interest, and at the same time enjoying plenty of open air and outside activities.
