The Northern Rivers Vintage & Veteran Car Club Inc. was formed in Lismore in 1960 by 12 men who had a common interest in old vehicles. They met at the Lismore Council Chambers and first named the group "The Northern Rivers Vintage Car Club". Two foundation members Mr. Bob Trevan and Mr. Graeme Fitzgerald are still members today.
The first rally was held in 1961 in conjunction with the Floral Carnival. Every year since the NRVVCC hosts a rally which sees 80 to 100 vehicles take part. The club has hosted 6 hub rallies and in 2010 we hosted our 50th Anniversary rally which involved 6 days of rallying in Lismore and surrounding areas, and had 130 veteran, vintage and classic vehicles participate.
In 1968 the club changed it's name to "The Northern Rivers Vintage & Veteran Car Club Inc." Over the years the club has had a large variety of vehicles registered, we currently have 70 members and 72 vehicles/bikes and trucks registered on Conditional Registration. We accepted all vehicles/bikes older than 31st December 1980 of original design.
Over the years the club has had many meeting places it currently meets at the LISMORE WORKERS CLUB on the second Wednesday each month at 7.30pm. We welcome all visitors and new members.
