About the Federation

The Federation was formed in 1970 currently has 105 Clubs in its membership and is an umbrella group for clubs that cater for vehicles (i.e. cars, motorcycles, trucks, stationary engines, etc) and not individuals as members. Individuals can become part of the movement by joining one the clubs listed by clicking on the member clubs tab on left.

Meetings are held on a quarterly basis and various items in relation to historic vehicles are discussed by members and information from these meetings is taken back to member clubs.

The Federation is proud to have commenced the Picnic days at Marong, Mortlake and Pakenham and the Australia Day display in the Flagstaff Gardens Melbourne. At these events people interested in historic vehicles meet with other enthusiasts to share items of interest in a relaxed atmosphere.

In 1975 the annual Swap meeting which had been run at Gisborne the previous year and prior to that, 2 years in Melbourne, was moved to Bendigo and by agreement the management and organisation was handed over to the Veteran Vintage & Classic Club Bendigo.

The Federation remains the owners of the Swap and is proud of the growth that this event has seen since its inception.
