Car Club for "Youngtimers"

    Hi folks,

    I am in the early stages of setting up a classic car club for 'Youngtimers'.

    I found that a lot of the classic clubs have an older membership profile and as a result the events/shows/runs etc are geared more towards that age group. Don't get me wrong, I love the club I am a member of, and there is a huge amount of experience there - but the age profile puts off a lot of younger people off. I see from the Cars and Coffee scene that there are a lot of younger people getting into classics but they are not in a club.

    I also find that not many clubs want to know about modern classics - i.e cars 20-30 years old.

    So I am targeting members in their 20s/30s/40s (but anybody is welcome) and any cars greater than 20 years old.

    I have set up a Facebook group to get started, and the plan is to turn this into a bona fide club once sufficient members are available.

    I would appreciate any feedback (if anybody actually sees this thread on this new site layout) and if you are interested in the group you can find it here.
