A classic car club is a great way to spend one’s time. However, these clubs are not really something that is broadcast on a regular basis. That’s why many people are often confused as to how to join them. And other people are unsure as to why they would even want to join one. But all of those questions are answered in this article.
Why Join a Car Club?
• Meet new people who identify with some of the same hobbies.
• Additional events that allow the whole family to get involved.
• Receive additional technical advice and expertise to keep one’s classic cars up to the highest standards.
• Enjoy raising funds for charities, which many car clubs do participate in.
• Have fun and add to the enjoyment of owning a classic car.
• Some clubs will have discounts and deals for related products – some may even be able to offer discounted classic car insurance.
What a Club Does
Here are just some of the events that a classic car club might decide to participate in:
• Brunch cruises. These events are where people bring their families along to a local restaurant where members can meet up and just socialise with each other.
• Car shows are organised by the large majority of clubs and usually happen every few months or on an annual basis. This is where clubs may decide to increase their awareness by donating a portion of their profits to charity or where they might decide to simply help fund other events.
• Car rallies are basically bouts of street racing where cars must drive along a specific route whilst obeying all the local speed limits. These are where the more competitive members will be found. It gives people a reason to continue staying with a club.
Joining a Club
Each club has their own application method. However, this information can usually be found through their websites. Most clubs will have application forms that must be sent and interviews that must be attended. Clubs generally demand relatively clean driving licenses and they will demand to see a physical copy of said license. Generally membership fees will have to be paid.
