Classic or Historic Vehicles may be registered through the club in compliance to the rules by the RMS (see section 6 of the Constitution)
In Simple terms a Historic Vehicle is in the condition as when it was originally certified for sale, although there is some flexibility what may seem like simple modifications can result in failure of a vehicle to be registered as an Historic vehicle and it may have to be registered as a Classic vehicle.
Registration of an Historic Vehicle,
- You must be a financial Member of the Club
- If unregistered you will need a Blue slip, if registered a pink slip is required
