ABOUT US

ABOUT US

Monthly Meetings have resumed (July 2020) and are currently held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at the club rooms of the Veteran Car Club of Australia (Qld).  Meetings open at 7:30pm but a pre-meeting BYO everything barbecue is typically enjoyed from about 6:30pm.  Supper is provided after the meeting. 

 

Events of one form or another - breakfasts, lunches, dinners, mid-week runs, weekend and week-long tours - are held throughout the year, with the cooler winter months preferred for touring.  The Annual Concours in June is a favorite and for those who enjoy something different there's always the Virgins Breakfast!

 

Impromptu Events can be laid   on at short notice.  Ths is how..

The VCCQ Library is well stocked and catalogued.  It's open before and after meetings, with most books available for borrowing at nominal cost.

 

Newsletter.  The Vintage Car is our monthly newsletter, delivered by email and widely regarded as one of the best. 

Newsletter Archive.  You can now access the archive containing every issue from the very first to recent times by clicking HERE 

Our Facebook page carries interesting stuff - mainly pictures - from our club and from other parts of the world.  Have a look.

Dating of Vehicles is important in terms of authenticity and a certified dating certificate is mandatory for anyone seeking concessional registration under SIVS, the Queensland Government's Special Interest Vehicle Scheme.  Our Dating Officer assists members in this area.

Useful Products & Services.  At present we don't have our own directory, but you might like to look at the listings maintained by other Queensland clubs with similar interests:

A Little Background.  In 1955 the Vintage Car Club of Queensland was formed by a group of like-minded Brisbane enthusiasts to foster interest in the history, preservation and use of fine vintage cars.  There were 17 members at the beginning and these days we number around 100.  We're the oldest historic motoring club in Queensland, catering particularly for fine vintage and pre-WWII automobiles.

Classifications.  The cars that interest us are classified in line with generally accepted Australia definitions.

  • Veteran cars: manufactured before 1919. 

  • Vintage cars: manufactured in the period 1919 - 1930 inclusive. 

  • Post-Vintage Thoroughbreds: high quality cars built after 1930 but before 1946.

  • Post-War Thoroughbreds: the very best of those manufactured in the period 1946 - 1960 inclusive

Membership is open now.  We welcome enthusiasts of high-quality pre-WWII cars.   You don't need to own an appropriate car.  Please contact the club's Secretary for further information - just click HERE.

Sending Money?   Banking information for members appears in The Vintage Car.

If you remember Steady Barker

 

Dear Mr Birkigt…

 

There’s nothing quite so amorous and glamorous for cameras

As your Hispano-Suiza de la France:

None so fabulous, exotic and narcotic, or erotic

(Thus appealing to all rich - and maiden – aunts!).

I could write a bonny sonnet on the bonnet and how long it

Is from driving seat to scintillating stork;

And the engine’s so elastic and fantastically gymnastic,

With a hind-legs-of-a-donkey sort of torque.

Though it speaks with louder voices than Rolls-Royces, yet the noises

Are in keeping with its origins and birth,

And the character it oozes when it chooses to court floozies

Gives it more than pecuniary worth.

Now I used to know a rotter who had got a hot Isotta

And I’ve ridden in a 30/98;

And I’ve run a natty, somewhat tatty old Bugatti

At an altogether alarming rate.

But I’ve yet to find a motor which I’d vote a bigger quota

Of credit for sheer elegance and oomph.

By comparison the modern trash – all plated flash and balderdash –

Is worth a piece of perforated boomph.

 

RONALD BARKER
