WELCOME TO ORKNEY VINTAGE CLUB
The purpose of this website is to let you know a little bit about Orkney Vintage Club and the range of activities we have planned for 2013, whether you are a visitor to Orkney or a resident.
The Club was formed on 23rd November, 1982 and caters for all types of enthusiast, those owning or interested in cars, tractors, stationary engines, motor cycles, farm implements and machinery, household items etc, in fact the list is endless.
The Club holds most of its winter meetings in Kirkwall, as this is fairly central from a travel point of view. There is at least one gathering or event held each month and there are outings and visits to places of interest during the summer months.
2013 is the centenary year for the Morris car and we intend to celebrate this by displaying as many of the original Morris vehicles as possible. William Morris took over Wolseley and Riley and also branched out to produce MG cars and Nuffield tractors. We will try to concentrate on the vehicles designed before they became part of BMC. The car in the picture is a splendid example of a Bullnosed Morris Cowley from 1923, owned and displayed at our Rally by Michael Shearer.
We are members of the Scottish Vintage Vehicle Federation (SVVF) and they advertise many events of interest to enthusiasts throughout Scotland. For details of these events visit their website which can be found at http://www.svvf.org.uk/
