50 years of NECPWA The North of England's largest "Classic and Vintage" Motoring Club was formed in 1966 by owners of Pre-War Austin Cars. The initials of the name NECPWA were so widely used, that when the 'Club' began to accept other makes the name was retained by popular request, although informally we are now affectionately known as the ‘Nearly Everywhere Club for Pretty Well Anything’!

Officially, the clubs name is North of England Classic and Pre War Automobiles but NECPWA is easier for everyone! For more information about NECPWA, go to Club History We now have Members who own different makes of vehicle, and membership is open to any enthusiast of old motor vehicles. It is not necessary to be a vehicle owner to join the club, but attendance at Club organised rallies is generally restricted to vehicles over 18 years or older. [NB each event has its own entry rules].

Our aim is to encourage the restoration and regular use of Historic Motor vehicles. We encourage the formation of Local Branches of the club and currently have branches representing the following areas: York, Durham, Bishop Auckland, Tyneside, North Yorkshire, Carlisle & Cleveland. Local branches being responsible for running their own events, and have their own representatives on the Executive Committee.

Our membership is spread over a very large area, mainly in the North of England and South of Scotland, we even have members overseas! Members come from all walks of life, united by common interest.

We are a non-profit making society with Honorary Officials. We are a member of the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs which was formed in 1961 to represent the interests of the "Older Vehicle Movement" in the United Kingdom to Government Departments and the EEC on legal, technical, and general matters.

We are proud of our friendly, informal outlook, and we hope that You will decide to join us, and keep those old wheels turning.
