Since its formation in 1965 the Club has been catering for lorry and road haulage enthusiasts and now can boast a current membership of some 400, most of whom live in the United Kingdom. Whilst most of the members are actively engaged in the road haulage industry there are some who are interested enthusiasts with no professional involvement.
Indoor meetings are held monthly in Coventry and from time to time in various Eastern Counties venues at which members are invited to contribute to the programme as well as meeting others with similar interests. Members are encouraged to arrange meetings in their own vicinity.
The Club is represented at the Classic and Vintage Commercial Show held at the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon each summer. Knowledgeable club members are still involved in its organisation. Included are some of the very oldest lorries alongside a selection of restored and preserved vehicle of more recent vintage, in order that members and visitors can make their comparisons. As well as the full sized exhibits, there is a Model Truck Show, with exhibitors from all over the country; traders of spares, photographs, paintings, books, videos, models etc. Go to our Calendar page for full details.
