Welcome to The Steam Car Club The Steam Car Club of Great Britain has a 21 year history dating back to its first newsletter in 1988. It has been instrumental in keeping steam cars on the road.
The Club was formed in recognition of the ever increasing interest in steam cars and the need for a standalone club dedicated to that need. It has since grown into the largest and most respected Club in Europe and possibly the World, It has produced for many years the best known magazine in the World (THE STEAM CAR), having just published its 49th quarterly magazine. (Which is now in full colour).
The membership spans many countries including Australia, New Zealand, America and Europe. Membership is open to all. You don’t need to own a steam car, and whether you have an old or modern car or a steam bike; it’s your interest and knowledge that is valuable.
The club through its web page, forum and links page (with hits of over 30 million to date) has developed a method to help all Steam Car users, covering maintenance, restoration and the general running and advice including encouraging the regular examination of the boiler pressure system. Advice and support for anyone interested is always available. JOINING The Steam Club of Great Britain is the best route for enthusiasts specifically showing an interest in steam cars. Another important activity of the club was the building of its ever increasing historic archive, and pattern register thus aiding people with technical support for all cars in preservation. The archive has been built up over many years with the help of the Science Museum and Stanley Museum as well as Auburn Heights in America and many other organisations and people to which we are grateful. Preserving our heritage with steam on the road is essential.
The Steam Car Club of Great Britain is affiliated to the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Club and the Veteran Car Club. It co-operates and deals with the DVLA and VOSA on the behalf of steam car enthusiasts. Through its website it has built up its own register of the steam cars and bikes operated in the U.K. and a similar register covering Europe. In this way members can check up the history and ownership of any steam car or steam bike.
