We are Carlow Vintage and Classic Motor Club

 Welcome to Carlow Vintage and Classic Motor Club. The club was formed in 2007 with only 40 people involved in it at the start which quickly grew after a few meetings and word spread about the club and out of nowhere people with their cars crawled out of the woodwork or metalwork would be the right term.



There was always a lot of interest in Classic and Vintage cars in the Carlow area and the surrounding Counties.

To date we have 148 members and still growing strong from Counties Carlow, Laois,  Kilkenny, Wexford, Wicklow and Kildare.

We hold our meetings on the last Tuesday of every month at 8.30pm in the Lord Bagnal Hotel in Leighlinbridge.

All members are sent a text message to be reminded of time and place of meetings or upcoming events.
