Established 1976

Welcome to Swansea Historic Vehicle Register. We are a classic car club based in the Swansea area of South Wales. The club was established over thirty years ago and is a multi-mark club.

During the year we organise runs and events such as Annual Auto Jumble in February, Shows and a Trip to Kinsale in May, and participate in quizzes, talks, summer BBQ and Christmas buffet therefore we extend a hearty welcome to you in the hope that you will participate in some of our activities and look forward to seeing you at our meetings.

I have to inform you that Bill Radford passed away see members news

I am contacting as many of you as I can so that I don't leave anyone in the dark.


Bill's funeral will take place on the 28th May at 12.30 at Margam Crematorium.

Just a quick note to make sure everyone is aware of the planned arrangements.

We are going to have a line of club cars arranged before the hearse arrives at the crematorium.

There is a long lay-by on the right side of the roadway, just before the car park entrance. We plan to arrive about 12pm and line the cars up ready for Bill's party to pass by.

If any of you can bring a classic car that would be fine. If you are unable to bring one, please turn up in your modern. It will mean a lot to the family to see a good turnout from the club. If it's got wheels, it counts!


Following the funeral there will be refreshments for those who can attend, but at the moment I am awaiting confirmation of the venue, 2 are under consideration.


If you can make it with your classic please let me know asap. Please also confirm if you can attend the refreshments following the funeral so that I can confirm numbers to the family to aid the caterers.


Kind regards,
