Our General Meeting is at the Austrian Club this Wednesday
The Vintage Sports Car Club of
Calgary is a group of over 150 people
who are enthusiastic about vintage sports cars. Most of our cars are
post war sporting classics such as Austin-Healey, Jaguar, MG, Morgan
and Triumph. We also count owners of more exotic machinery among our
ranks including Alfa, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ford GT. The age of club
vehicles range from the 1930's through to the present.
Sizes cover the field from a Rolls Royce to a Mini Cooper.
From September to April we hold
general meetings on the second Wednesday of the month. Our location is
Austrian Canadian Cultural Centre,
3112 -11th Street N.E.,
The meeting pattern is generally:-
During the summer months our business meetings are kept as short as possible and we often have an evening drive in lieu of entertainment, weather permitting.
In the months when it is reasonable to drive a sports car in Calgary, even if not with the top down, we enjoy rallies, planned drives and social events. A particular feature of our club is "drive-to-eat" events where we drive to restaurants or picnic sites.
Membership is open to all those owning, or having an interest in, traditional (vintage) sports cars. One membership covers a member and spouse, but with only 1 voting privilege.
Membership Fees: $40.00 for the first year $35.00 renewal prior to December 31, $25 Out of Town (more than 130km)
New membership after July 1 $20, new membership after November 1 $40 (good through the following year)
Discounts are offered to members on parts and services by several sports car supply and service shops.
Appraisals by our qualified members are accepted for vintage vehicle insurance. This coverage is available for older cars but requires car club membership to be eligible.
As a member of the Specialty
Vehicles Association of Alberta
(formerly AAACS) (and by affiliation with the National Association of
Antique Automobile Clubs of Canada), the VSCCC is active in lobbying
governments for the protection of auto-hobby related aspects.
Our Safety Check form is at Safety Check Form.

As owners of interesting, old, and sometimes rare and expensive cars, we as members of the VSCCC are often asked about hiring out our cars. We have been asked if we would be willing to lend, rent, hire or drive our cars for weddings, anniversaries, birthdays and other special occasions.
The members, as a group, have decided they cannot allow their cars to be lent, hired or otherwise used by other than the owner. This also includes driving their cars carrying passengers willing to pay or donate to the owner or club for the service.
The reason for this is certainly not an unwillingness to show and share their old cars. It is a practicality due to insurance. As vintage, veteran, antique or just old special interest vehicles, they are insured under special provisions. These include limited annual mileage, for use in exhibitions, parades, club activities, and occasional personal outings, and not for hire.
For these reasons, members are not willing to jeopardize their special insurance privileges by using their cars for purposes other than specified above. We regret disappointing anyone hoping to have a special vintage car for their special occasion, but trust you understand our members' position.
We suggest you try the "Limousine Service" section of your Yellow Pages.A-Class Limousine is one example that we have found on the internet.
