Young Driver Loan Car

Do you have a family member or know someone who may be interested in the loan of a Volvo for 12 months.

Please see below for information.

Young driver? Interested in Classics? Like to try a classic Volvo for a year?

The Volvo Enthusiasts Club is a participant in the Classic Car Loan Project, which was set up encourage younger drivers to take up the classic car hobby. For full details of the scheme, see 


We lend you a classic Volvo for a year. All you have to do is insure it (we have a discount arrangement with Peter James Insurance), garage it, look after it and enjoy it, and tell us about anything interesting you do with it for our club magazine. You collect the car, which is checked over, with a fresh MOT. Should anything major break during your loan period costing more than £100, we use our resources as a club to get you back on the road. At the end of the year, (usually in April), you MOT the vehicle and hand it back. You are limited to 6,000 miles, which should cover you for plenty of classic car events, and you do have to stay in the UK. You also get complimentary membership of the VEC for the duration of the loan.

Let us introduce you to the car. She is a classic 1988 Volvo 245 estate.

She was owned by one family from new, and serviced by Volvo all her life. Apart from some consumables and remedial body work on the tailgate, we have had to do very little to her, and she was smart enough to be on our club stand at the NEC Classic Car Show. This is the definitive proper Volvo family estate, rugged, powerful and reliable, yet still elegant enough to park outside a mansion. She drives extremely well, and has an excellent interior. She even has a dog guard, although you will have to provide your own Labrador! If you are interested, contact us via the scheme through the website above.

Club Accounts 2020

As you know, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, little has occurred within the club this year. We’ve had a few member renewals in the early part of the year and a few new members have decided they would like to join us, even though we haven’t been able to get out to shows. This has meant that there has been very little income compared to previous years. There are, however, still expenditures such as the web site, insurance, FBHVC subs, etc. These still need to be covered even though the club is standing still.

We started the year in a healthy position and, because we were not very active, expenditure was kept at a minimum. The renewals at the start of the year and the new members easily covered the outgoings, plus a very generous donation to club funds by the Brassic film company, means we finish the year in excellent financial health. We could even cover the charity donation we haven’t been able to raise this year. Here’s hoping that this virus is soon defeated and we can get back to normal next year with a full calendar of shows and social events.
