The Scottish Vintage Vehicle Federation was established in November 1973 with the aims of publishing an events programme each year and maintaining a register of competitors. The architect of the SVVF was Tom Sked of Aberdeen and appropriately he was elected its first Chairman. A Calendar of Events, duly published for 1974, contained 17 Events and a similar number of clubs.

A Register of those who entered rallies amounted to about 300 people. Today we have over 110 events, around 100 member bodies and around 6700 enthusiasts on the Register. The objectives of the Federation remain the same – we try to get rally organisers to liaise through us to avoid unnecessary clashes when two nearby events are proposed for the same day.

At our Dates Meeting in November we try through discussion and compromise to agree dates which as far as reasonably possible are acceptable to everybody and can therefore be included within our Events Programme. Membership of the Federation is open to any organisation, be it a Club, Local Council or other business which organises a vintage vehicle event in Scotland or has an interest in vehicles over 20 years old providing that they are prepared to be guided by the S.V.V.F. when appropriate. Membership is not open to individuals.

Register of Membership

The SVVF Register of Enthusiasts is compiled from membership lists returned annually by membership organisations.

The Register is used by the SVVF. and its member bodies to distribute information about vintage vehicle events to people who we think will be interested, and we are careful to ensure that it is not put to other uses.

The Register is not sold or otherwise supplied to anyone outside the SVVF. The Register does not contain details of specific vehicles that a individual owns.

We regret that requests from individuals to have names added to the Register cannot be accepted. All information must be supplied through an SVVF. Member Body. The best way to be in the information loop for vintage vehicle events is to join a local or one-make club.

SVVF Champion of Champions

Exhibits that won a concours trophy at a SVVF member organisation in the previous year are invited to the Champion of Champions. Each year the Championship is hosted by a different rally. The Federation awards trophies in 22 classes and an overall Supreme Champion of Champions.
