The Club

The club is a gathering of like-minded owners of classic and vintage (and even some Veteran) vehicles, meeting on the first Monday of each month at the Rising Sun public house at Halls Green, near Weston. Set in delightful countryside on a quiet lane, the pub has excellent beers and food, and a large car park that is ideal for our gatherings.

Most club nights in the warmer and lighter months see a wide variety of vehicles on display and the opportunity for members, friends, and the public to chat about all things to do with 'proper motoring'.

There is little formality in proceedings and anyone is welcome to attend a couple of meetings before making the decision to join. The current annual subscription is just fifteen pounds. For practical purposes only, membership numbers are limited to 120. Email Membership to find out if we are full.

The club organises occasional speakers, joint meetings with other car clubs, and attendance at shows and rallies for either individual or group entry - where we will have a club stand.

A club magazine is published bi-monthly and contributions of stories and pictures are always welcome.

To get in touch, click the contact link above.

We look forward to meeting you.

Keith says - To order any items please email me with the order form and notify me of your payment. Personalised artwork is not a problem, but it does have setup costs. I can then put the order in. The garments can take two or three weeks to come through, depending on how busy my supplier is and when he can fit the run in. He does his best. The more I have the better it is. They are sent to me. I will pass them on to you at the next available club meeting.

Mercedes Benz 1996 SL320 finished in the rare colour of Tourmaline with Mushroom Leather trim.  Full service history details available upon request, current owner for the last 6 years and has only been used during the summer months with occasional winter use in dry conditions. Low mileage of 48878 since first registered in March 1996, comes complete with Hard Top, stand and cover.

This car was built just before the merger with Chrysler and consequently was built at a time when engineers ran the company not bean counters. I have a MBOC valuation of £14,500, a figure close to this would be hoped for, the car is in excellent condition and does not require any attention.
