Historic and Classic Vehicle Survey: Final Results
Welcome to the New Zealand Federation of Motoring Clubs, and the final release of the first-ever NZ Historic and Classic Vehicle Survey 2024, released 27 February 2024.
The Federation itself is the largest single player within our historic and classic vehicle community, with almost 150 vehicle clubs, over 140,000 members, and 48,000 historic and classic vehicles, together with very large membership from the motorhome and caravan sector. Our work is summarised in our statement, “Protecting our heritage into our future“
Why is this NZ Historic and Classic Vehicle Survey so important? It closely follows similar work undertaken in the UK, and in these times of change and challenge that face us all, the NZ Survey determines for the first time the social and economic footprint and impact of our collective passion for historic and classic vehicles, and the views of the New Zealand public at large.
The final results and outcomes are very revealing, and perhaps, surprising, even more so than the preliminary results announced in September 20223!
There’s a great collection of material, insightful data and headline outcomes, never seen before in the “Vehicle Survey 2024“.
The NZ Federation of Motoring Clubs
The FOMC was founded in 1994 as a group of motoring enthusiasts interested in the preservation of their vehicles and the right to use them on public roads without undue restriction by regulatory authorities. The foundation meeting was attended by 31 clubs and has grown to 144 member clubs today, representing more than 142,000 members. The Federation is an incorporated Society with an Executive selected by postal ballot from member clubs and has the authority to co-opt technical personnel if required. All officers, except the Secretary, are unpaid and spend a great deal of time working for the benefit of member clubs.
The Federation is an umbrella organisation for clubs and does not accept individuals as members.
