    Good stuff, I heard from a mate that the new rego allows you to drive for 90days a year as well you can drive on club events.
    Is that right ?
    Also what are the mods allowed ? as I'm currently putting parts together to build a "fun/tuff" car that won't see alot of road time and maybe this club rego might be the go.
    Cheers

    if you are roadworthy with the the mods (eng cert, no problem with vision etc)....then no probs I reckon
    but
    if you are not, then the car gets a canary you lose the CH plates and logbook and the car club involved loses its right to issue plate certificates
    ( I have seen the stuff Vicroads sent to car clubs with the new scheme)

    good luck

    You are pushing the rules alot there.Historic rego is for historic cars of 30yrs or more and the only mods allowed are ones from that era.So tubbed cars cant be registered.For example 1960's jag with a 350chev in it with 20's on it is a big no no.

    But at the end of the day you say its the people who do burnouts who stuff it up,you are also a person who will stuff up historic rego.Just keep the car as it left the factory with very minimalmods,nothing out of the bonnet and no bonnet scoops etc.Mods such as wheels and steering wheels are good examples of little mods which are ok.

    If you want to drive a modded car on historic rego find a hot rod or other club which will allow you.

    And as for driving 90 days a year which is usually every sunday,are the only days which are club designated as a club run day.As for mechanical runs during the week you can drive up to 15km from the center of your CBD,cars can also be driven to such events such as a all ford or holden day just need to let your club register know and should be ok,cause when you get pulled over on a weekday or saturday the police will check with your club.

    they absolutely are

    Club reg demands a vehicle meet the same standards as normal vehicles (mods mean eng cert etc)
    The details our club got from Vicroads makes this quire clear...a vehicle has to be roadworthy

    I dont know about NSW but the new rules here in Vic are different to what you say
    doesnt matter what the car classification (rod historic etc) you need to meet a minimum set of standards for
    that car. Apart from the minimum standards like lights wipers tyres etc, the vehicle standards for a rod are different
    vs a restored FX Holden v a tubbed Torrie
    Vicroads make available minimum roadworthy requirements and also list stuff like wheel widths, ride heights, visibility rules
    for scoops and blowers etc etc (there is a LONG list on their website)

    also
    the 90 day rules mean you can drive any time any day up to a max 90 days a year
    you do NOT have to be on a club run you can drive it to and from work if you like
    but once you use up 90 days...thats it for 12 months

    Driving a historic rego car on any other day than sunday is a big no no.Thus also driving to work and back is also a big no no.Cause the cars arent insured on those days.Read the rules you will see you cannot drive it to and from work cruise the streets.Basically your cheating the historic rego system.As these cars can only be driven on a sunday.Mechanical runs are permitted only up to 15kms from your main CBD.These are the NSW rules.Am unsure about QLD.

    But like i said the cars that are on historic rego need to be the same as when they left the factory.So no tubbs or rollcages,blowers etc.Minimal mods you probably get away with.

    Now you said you can drive it to and from work,so when you have an accident on a public road you wont be covered,and you will loose your rego and possibly your membership to that club and other members will not like you.

    As i know in VIC cars only need to be 25yrs to be registered as a historic vehicle,here in NSW they need to be atleast 30yrs.But i dont know every little rule but i just go off what i have found and been told.

    suggest you have a look at this -
    The Victorian “club permit scheme” allows members of car clubs (including motorcycle, trailer/caravan and machinery clubs), that are recognised by VicRoads,
    to make limited use of the road network in order to drive to club events, for “authorised special use” or in preparation for club events.


    A club permit can be issued to the following vehicles in the following categories:

    * Veteran vehicles - manufactured before 1 January 1919
    * Vintage vehicles - manufactured after 31 December 1918 and before 1 January 1931
    * Classic & Historic vehicles manufactured after 31 December 1930, but more than 25 years before the date of the application for a club permit.

    These categories can include trailers and modified vehicles such as street rods. Vehicles which are replicas of vehicles in the above categories may also be issued with a club permit.

    A club permit allows vehicles to be used:

    * in connection with official activities organised by an association approved by VicRoads, such as car rallies, or in the preparation of the vehicle for such activities; or
    * if authorisation for special private use has been granted.

    Club Permits are issued for 12 month periods and vehicles are issued with a specific club permit number plate.

    Note: From 1 February 2011 changes will be introduced to the club permit scheme to allow club vehicles to use the road for any purpose for up to 90 or 45 days within the permit period.
    Further details can be found in the Revised Club Permit Scheme brochure - November 2010 [PDF 356KB].


    (from Club permits : VicRoads)

    the brochure for the Feb11 changes mentioned above is -
