MEMBERSHIP applications are welcome from anyone with an interest in the preservation, appreciation and driving of vintage cars.
Full Membership applicants must have a vintage car (made between 1919-1930) either under restoration or on the road. Cars must be original or authentically restored, not modified or customised. HVS vehicle registration through the VMC is only available to Full Members. Associate Memberships are available for those not currently owning a vintage car. We have a number of Associate Members who either formerly owned vintage cars or who enjoy being involved in the Club's tours and activities.
Membership fees are tailored to suit those living in the greater Sydney region or members in country NSW and interstate.
New to the hobby?If you have never owned or restored a vintage car then joining a club, even before you buy a restored car or start a restoration is recommended.
All good collector car clubs want new enthusiasts to enjoy the hobby and not get turned off or caught out financially by the difficult bits of old car restoration, repair and operation. The VMC offers experienced and practical help for those new to the hobby helping you avoid some of the traps and tribulations in getting started in the vintage cars. Even before your car is up and running the VMC offers members opportunities to be involved n vintage car rallies.
Do you have a vintage car sitting idle in the garage? Looking for a club that really gets out and about and enjoys driving their vintage cars? VMC rallies offer great vintage motoring events, we welcome visitors so come along and experience real vintage driving. MEMBER BENEFITS Club Events are held monthly, these vary from full or half-day runs, 1 day navigation drives, full weekend rallies, Easter Rallies and 10-14 day interstate tours (usually held biennially). Club members also support charity displays and participate in film and TV events. Whether driving or socialising together VMC members enjoy both friendship and fun centred on their vintage cars and the places and events these cars take them to.
Monthly Club Meetings Meetings are fairly informal, sociable and are an opportunity to discuss rallies and tours, our own vehicles and vintage cars in general.
The VMC Bulletin, a full colour newsletter, is sent to all Full and Associate members 11 times per year in either email or print version and is exchanged with many other collector car clubs across Australia.
Vehicle Registration- Historic Conditional Registration Scheme VMC Full Members are entitled to access reduced cost Conditional Registration approved by the RTA NSW for all their eligible veteran, vintage and historic vehicles, subject to a road worthiness inspection by our Club Registrar and subsequently to the annual road worthiness inspection conducted by the Club or the provision of a current 'pink slip'. The Conditional Registration Scheme allows those vehicles on Historic plates to be driven to designated Club and other notified events.
The knowledge and skills of enthusiastic fellow vintage car owners is a major feature of the VMC. Many members are very experienced amateur car restorers, several with multi-award winning vehicles, and many with cars that have enviable touring histories. The expertise of these members is readily shared with those who have cars in repair or under restoration.
