Now Voted in the Top Ten Local Classic Car Clubs in the UK by Practical Classics Magazine.

A Letter from our chairman

Dear members
As most of you are aware the club has made it into the top 10 classic car clubs in Britain. The competition is sponsored by Practical Classics magazine and Footman James insurance. Representatives of these groups are visiting us on Tuesday 25th June to interview us with our cars to see if we can be the number 1, which would be a great honour for the club. With this in mind the committee has selected Ysgol y Deri special school Penarth for a meeting point, where we will be having a BBQ for CLUB MEMBERS from 4pm.
Please note that you will need to bring your own drinks.

They have also asked us if some of us would meet them earlier in the day for a run down to Penarth via Brecon. I have arranged a meeting point at Pont Abraham services for 10.15
 I would be grateful if you could email Malcolm Selley at  to let  know if you could make either event by Wednesday 19th June 2019 so that we have got an idea of numbers attending. Please confirm if you go on the run and also the BBQ.

Welcome to the official site of the South Wales Classic Car Club (SWCCC). The club was formed by a small group of enthusiasts back in 1983 and has taken a dynamic path to get to where we are today. We currently have a membership of around 100 classic car enthusiasts, mainly from South Wales, but with some as far away as Bristol to the east and Pembrokeshire to the west.

The SWCCC represents a great opportunity to meet fellow old and modern classic enthusiasts and strike new enduring friendships, based on a common interest.

We are a very diverse group and member's cars range from fairly modern Japanese sports cars, through 1960's and 70's British standards to vintage Rollers, with examples of a lot more in-between.

There are regular gatherings and organised runs throughout the year and our annual show, Classics in Cardiff, run entirely by volunteers from the club. The money raised enables donations to be made to various charities serving the South Wales area.

If you are interested in joining the South Wales Classic Car Club, or would just like to see what we get up to, then come along to one of our monthly meetings, regular coffee mornings or join in with a driving event

Whilst all the above is certainly true we always look forward to meeting new classic car enthusiasts, because the ultimate survival of the club relies on a regular intake of new members.
