Welcome to the Vectis Historic Vehicle Club Ltd

Vectis Historic Vehicle Club, Isle of Wight


Welcome to the VHVC Ltd. website

The Club Started life as the Isle of Wight Veteran Machinery Club in 1973, but in 1980 it's name was changed to Vectis Historic Vehicle Club to better reflect the general interests of its members.

It has over 170 members and they own a wide variety of vehicle makes, including Armstrong Siddeley, Aston Martin, Austin, Bentley, Bristol, Cadillac, Chrysler, Daimler, Fiat, Ford, Hillman, Jaguar, Lea Francis, MG, Morris, Renault, Riley, Rolls Royce, Talbot, Triumph, Vauxhall, Volkswagen, and Wolseley, dating from1914 to the 1980's. See Photographs of over 30 in our Gallery

The club organises a wide variety of events throughout the year including Sunday Tea Runs, a round the island run and other Trophy runs. There are also static displays at the I.W County Show, Garlic Festival, Bembridge Festival and other village and school fetes. In December we hold a Christmas Charity Collection in Newport, with our cars on display in St. Thomas's square on behalf of the IOW Mountbatten Hospice. In the summer we hold an open day at Arreton Barns.

Joint activities are held with other Island clubs and also with mainland clubs visiting the Island, both of which provide interesting cars to see on their visits.

Informal meetings are held principally at the Newclose Cricket Club complex, Newport, at 8.00pm, and at other selected venues, on the second or third Thursday. With visiting speakers, quiz evenings and skittles.

A club newsletter is issued on a bi-monthly basis. We can supply metal car badges and windscreen stickers and clothing with the club logo.
