Over recent years we've gone from strength to strength with more members and immensely popular events with hundreds of vehicles on show and huge visitors numbers.
Here at Blackpool Vehicle Preservation Group (BVPG) we are a group of vehicle enthusiasts. We are not just a classic car club, many of us own vehicles other than cars and some do not own a vehicle but have a keen interest in the motoring world.
If you share our interest, please come along to a club meeting or event and meet some friendly, like minded people, click "Latest News & Tweets" for forthcoming events.
For more details on our events, send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have any questions about our group please do not hesitate to call our Chairman, Bill Swindlehurst on 01772 633369.

We hold three shows each year across the Blackpool and Fylde area which are proving more and more popular year on year often hundreds of exhibits on display from 1920s to date such as cars, motorbikes and military vehicles.
Guests and club members are invited to exhibit their vehicles at the events.
During the shows judges will make their way around all the exhibits and award points, resulting in trophies being presented to the worthy winners.
We return again for another fantastic show in 2018! What a great show we had in 2017! With over 250 vehicles and incredible interest from the public, it was another fantastic year at Stanley Park! Please note this event is now full.
