We are a traditional classic car owners club for owners of small Ford sidevalves built between 1932 and 1962.


We cover a vast range of vehicles from the early Ford Model Y saloons, right through to the 107E Ford Prefect (with the OHV engine from the 105E Anglia) including all vans, commercials and specials based upon the ubiquitous four cylinder side-valve engine.

For members purchase spares and regalia. To save time on the day, please let the Spares Secretary (Neil Patten) know beforehand if you require a large number of spares so that the order can be made up before the event. If members are looking for specific parts that are not on the current spares lists then please contact Neil to check on availability of specific parts – where possible, they can be put to one side earlier in the morning for collection. Please park outside the garage complex on the side of the road, as the local residents will require access to their garages in that area and therefore access must be kept clear. Refreshments will be available throughout the day.  Full details in our February magazine and also in the Member area of this website.

    A project to loan classic cars to potential younger classic car enthusiasts.

    November 19, 2018

    The aim of the project is to encourage the next generation of classic car owners by giving younger drivers the use of a classic car for up to a year as an extended driving experience. This wonderful opportunity is possible due to the generous spirit of car owners and classic car clubs who have offered cars into our project. Young enthusiasts aged 25 years or older may apply for one of a range of cars. There are no hire or loan charges involved. All the safeguards are in place, including insurance, for all involved to gain maximum pleasure from the experience.

    This is a private initiative run by me in retirement having had many years of enjoyment from the classic car world. Over many years I have owned, restored and driven classic cars and have played a prominent role in classic car clubs and events aimed at encouraging a new generation.

    You may wish to apply to have one of our project cars on loan or indeed you may wish to contact me to find how you or your club can offer a car into the loan project. Sponsors are welcome too. This website will be updated with progress and stories as the project grows, feel free to share our articles however please contact me before using any of our images.”

    One of our long term members has loaned his 100E Anglia and his Morris Minor on this basis.
