South Wales Classic Club Supported By Admiral Classic Car Insurance

Welcome to the website of the South Wales Classic Car Club.  The Club was formed by a small group of enthusiasts back in 1983 and has continued to go from strength to strength. 

Today it has a membership of around 100 classic car enthusiasts mainly from South Wales but with some coming from as far away as Bristol to the east of the region and Carmarthenshire in West Wales.
A huge part of the Club’s success is because it is a great place to meet fellow enthusiasts and make new friends.  All you need is an interest in classic cars – you don’t even need to own one to be a member!  The type of classics owned by South Wales Classic Car Club members range from vintage Rolls-Royces and sleek Jaguars to the humble BMC  family saloons from our younger day.  But, regardless of the vehicle(s) owned or aspired to, everyone is welcome.
Our annual show, the South Wales Classic Car Show, is run entirely by volunteers from the Club and the money raised enables donations to be made to various charities serving the South Wales area.  Follow the links for more details of the South Wales Classic Car Show and the charities we have been able to support.
Club members can e-mail with any photographs, articles/stories, news/information or comments that they wish to be added to this website. We don't currently have a forum but will soon be linking to Facebook.

Too Cool For School?

For 2016, we are holding the Chilly Willy event a week later than usual, (10 January) to take account of the first Sunday of January being part of the New Year weekend, and some members have prior commitments for New Year.

Following the success of the 2015 event, organised by Malcolm Selley, the route will be pretty compact with not  too many surprises, it fact, sections of the route will be very familiar to some members!

The muster point will be at M4 Junction 33 Services, for a 10am departure and the route finishes in the Bridgend area for a lunch of ‘posh’ burger served with chips. The cost per head for lunch will £9.95, with a £5 deposit payable to Mark Daniel at December club night. Anyone wishing to join the Chilly Willy, but not able to attend on 3 December (?!) should let Mark  know by 12 December.

There is a mid-morning coffee stop planned at one of the area’s garden centres, where the venue will afford us will priority parking and exclusive use of their restaurant for a hot drink and biscuits at £3 per head.

For those in two minds about bringing their treasured classics (and future classics) out if the weather is not kind to us, please remember that the public love to see  our cars being used, that cars can't catch cold if they get wet and there are a myriad of products widely available to get dirt off!
