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 100 members and they own a wide variety of vehicle makes, including Armstrong Siddely, 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 1970'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 June we hold an open day at Arreton Barns.

Joint activities are held with other Island clubs and also with the Midlands Vehicle Preservation Society and the Watford Classic Car Club, both of which provide interesting cars on their frequent visits.

An informal meeting is held at the Riverside Centre, Newport, at 8.00pm, and at other selected venues, on the second Friday of each month, also skittles, quiz evenings and visiting speakers.

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.
