Brief History of the Newcastle District Vintage & Classic Car Club Inc.
The Newcastle District Vintage Car Club Inc was formed on 20th July 1966 when fourteen enthusiasts met as the 1st Hamilton Scout Hall. The original club constitution catered for Vintage Vehicle and motor Cycles only, ie. Those manufactured in the period 1st January 1919 to 31st December 1030. However, over the ensuing years, the Roads and Traffic authority regulations covering concessional registration has been extended to include pre-war and post-war vehicles and we now cut off with a rolling 30 year period.
Two events that considerably enhanced the NDVCC was the foundation of the ladies auxiliary in 1972, which became the Social Committee in 1987, and the second event was the creation of the Upper Hunter Branch of the NDVCC in 1974.
Over the ensuing years the club has continues to grow from humble beginnings with outings and activities catering for family participation. The club has now grown to have in excess of 180 families with some 130 vehicles on Conditional registration, also known as Historic Registration.
In 1996 the club purchased a former church hall to establish the Clubs own Club Rooms located at 78 Main Road, Boolaroo. The Newcastle District Vintage Car Club became an incorporated body in 1988. On 8 November 2012 the name The Newcastle District Vintage & Classic Car Club – NDVCCC - became an official name change for the Club.
