The Classic Car Club of Hong Kong  (C) 2017  |  Privacy Policy

 
 
 

Mr. Dick Worrall and a group of 18 classic car enthusiasts gathered together regularly in 1979, to share their passion for older cars. The following year, they decided to organize the group as an affiliated club of the Hong Kong Automobile Association (HKAA).

 

The first Chairman of the Club, Mr. Roger Burkhill happened to be a committee member of the HKAA. The Club was eventually incorporated with limited liability by guarantee in 1989.

 

The Classic Car Club of Hong Kong is a non-profit organization with a mission to promote the collection and preservation of classic cars. Currently, the Club has approximately 500 members who collectively own 750 cars. Its members meet regularly to share their love and experience through gatherings such as “Sunday Morning Drive”, “Noggin’ & Natter”, “Classic Car China Drive” and “Annual Classic Car Show”.

 

Over the years, the Club also supported a variety of public and charity activities. Its members have provided their beloved collections for holiday parades, promotion of road safety, charity fundraising, as well as visiting homes for the elderly and orphanages.

 

As a result, upon nomination by the Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong, the Club has been honored once again by the Hong Kong Council of Social Service as a “Care Organization”, an honour which has been bestowed every year since 2006, having been nominated by various charity organisations each year.

 

There are also times when we see classic cars roaring on racing circuits in Macau, China, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia or the Philippines. The powerful imagery shows a more dynamic aspect of the classic car.

 

The Club holds few major events for its members every year – the “Annual Classic Car Show” at Chater Road in autumn, when as many as 90+ precious and rare collections are put on display & the “Annual Luncheon” in spring, when members gather socially to vote for “Car of the Year” and “Member of the Year“. Each year, the Club organizes around 30 events for members to enjoy.

 

In addition to offering special discounted insurance policies through selected insurance companies for members’ classic cars, the Club’s members are also able to get “Classic Car Movement Permit” from the Transport Department for their cars that are over 20 years old and not registered in Hong Kong, as well as discounted rate at many Sino parking facilities.

 

The Classic Car Club of Hong Kong now has over 600 Members with over 1000 classic cars from the 20s to the 80s. It is the Only Car Club in Hong Kong organized solely for Classic Car Enthusiasts and have been awarded such accolades as “Club Of The Year” from the South China Morning Post. Any person interested in classic cars is welcome to join the Club’s growing membership, and to share the fun and contributions to the society.

 

在1979年,本會始創人Dick Worrall先生聯同十八位老爺車愛好者聚首一堂,交流保養老爺車心得,並在翌年成立了香港老爺車會,當時,老爺車會是香港汽車會(HKAA)的屬會,第一屆會長Roger Burkhill先生也是香港汽車會的委員之一,其後,在1989年註冊成為一間有限公司。

 

香港老爺車會是一間非牟利機構,主旨是透過定期舉辦各種不同的車會活動,例如:星期日游車河、把酒言歡、老爺車中國游、老爺車展覽等,讓會員歡聚一起,推廣老爺車的文化,及互相交流收藏與保養老爺車的心得。

 

一直以來,本會參與不少公開活動,例如:香港旅遊發展局舉辦的年初一花車巡遊,區議會或有關團體所舉辦的社區活動,以娛市民大眾,參與個別警區或香港交通安全隊舉辦的活動,藉以推廣道路安全等。

 

除此之外,本會也致力參與慈善活動,免費借出老爺車供慈善團體舉辦籌款活動、探訪老人院及孤兒院等,把關懷及愛心帶給有需要的一群。承蒙香港中華基督教青年會提名,本會自2006年,每年榮獲香港社會服務聯會頒發[同心展關懷]之標誌,以表揚本會對關心社會所作出的傑出表現。

 

其實老爺車也有非常刺激及動感的一面,當您看過本會的老爺車在澳門、珠海、日本、馬來西亞以至菲律賓等地的賽車場上飛馳的英姿,相信您也會對老爺車另眼相看。

 

每年本會均舉辦兩項傳統的大型活動,每年的年初,選擇一個環境優雅,綠草如茵的場地,舉行周年聚餐,眾會員駕駛心愛的老爺車,偕同家人或親友出席,共渡悠閒的一天。

 

十月份的中區遮打道老爺車展覽及最優雅老爺車評選,為數達九十餘輛各款式的會員經典愛車盡現眼前,並即塲投票選出最佳展示老爺車及最渴望擁有老爺車等獎項。每年,本會為會員舉辦各項活動約三十餘次。

 

本會除了成功向多間汽車保險公司爭取到老爺車投保優惠外,會員亦可享用汽油及信和停車塲泊車折扣優惠,申請香港特區政府運輸處簽發給車齡超過20年之老爺車使用的老爺車行車許可證等,給會員們帶來多方面的方便。

 

現時本會會員超越600之眾,各會員擁有由二十年代至八十年代各種型號老爺車達1000餘輛,並曾被南華早報評選為[Club of the Year],全港唯一純粹為老爺車愛好者而設立的車會。歡迎各位喜愛老爺車的朋友加入本會,一起分享駕駛老爺車的樂趣,在推廣老爺車文化之餘,也為社會作出貢獻。
