Regional Groups

Like most classic car clubs, the Ford Sidevalve Owners' Club has a system of "Regional Groups" which, as its name implies, provides club members in most parts of the country (and in some cases abroad) with a means of maintaining more contact with the club and fellow, local members than just the club's magazine can provide. Regional groups arrange runs and attendance to various events, as well as providing a social side of club membership, putting you in touch with other members in your area.

If you haven't gone along to your regional group meeting before, or not for a long time, why not give it a try? This invitation also extends to those of you who are not yet members of the FSOC, please identify yourself on arrival at the venue and you'll be made most welcome, although be warned; you may end up joining our club!

Simply click on the geographical area of interest to navigate quickly to the details of the regional group contact and meeting venue, or Click Here for all of them.

Where requested and in order to preserve the privacy of the regional group contacts, we haven't published all of their telephone numbers on the website. In any case, it is always worth checking for a 'phone number on the contacts page printed in the inside front cover of the Club magazine.

If the entry for your regional group is empty, or you'd like to start a regional group yourself, please contact Regional Group Co-ordinator via our Contacts page.

In all cases, the "(Back to the Top)" link will bring you back here.
