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. We became a LTD incorporated club in 2003 to protect members and officers from possible litigation.

It has over 190 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 from 1914 to the 2000'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 Mountbatten Hospice. In the summer we hold a charity 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.

A club newsletter is issued by email on a monthly basis. We can supply club regalia in the form of metal car badges and windscreen stickers and clothing with the club logo.
