Ayrshire Classics Car Club

29 Finlayson Way, Coylton, KA6 6GW

A few years ago, the local MGOC fraternity sort of petered out. But all was not lost since what did not peter out was the enthusiasm of a group of folks who like classic cars and live within striking distance of Ayr. And so Ayrshire Classics Car Club rose from the ashes and has been going from strength to strength ever since.

So there it is, we are a group of people of both sexes who like classic cars and enjoy the social events based around them.

Of course the question of what defines a car as ‘classic’ is debated at times, but we reckon that if you think yours is a classic – then it is, irrespective of its age or market value! So all classic car owners are welcome and a wide range of types are represented in the Club. In our club, you are just as likely to rub shoulders with the owner of a Mini as an E Type and both will be equally friendly.

What do we do?
We meet for a social gathering on the second Thursday of each month at 19.30 a local hotel . Of course that is also the time when the business of the Club is discussed, but that generally does not take up much of the evening. We have a varied program of away-day activities, which are predominantly focused on visiting the many Scottish car shows where our new banners will be very much in evidence over the coming year. We also go on runs (the car variety) when sometimes the weather is in our favour and we have purely social events such as the annual BBQ, quiz and our annual ‘away weekend’ in September. And each May we organise and run the car show at Dean Castle County Park in Kilmarnock. This year saw a visit to one of Britain's largest shows at Tatton Park, just off Junction 19 on the M6 at Knutsford. Our aim is to have a good time and show off our cars and we think that we succeed in doing so.

Ayrshire Classics Car Club is a member of the Scottish Vintage Vehicle Federation (SVVF). Our events are organised on behalf of members by a small committee composed of a Chairman, Membership Secretary, Webmaster, Events co-ordinator, Treasurer and two or more ad-hoc representatives. The committee’s job is to organise the program that our members want and although our Annual General Meeting is held in February, we remain flexible to change throughout the season.
