Paphos Classic Vehicle Club is a group of people who either own or appreciate classic vehicles, and enjoy getting together, using and discussing them. We usually hold our monthly social meeting at a Venue yet to be confirmed, third Saturday of the month. We are a group of people who enjoy getting together with others to use, enjoy and discuss our Classic Vehicles, both cars and bikes. Not all members own such a vehicle but we all appreciate them. Currently there are approximately 150 members registered with the club. They include owners of such vehicles as a Rolls Royce, several different MGs, a Ford Zephyr 6 and a Triumph Stag to name but a few.
Not all members actually own a classic vehicle, and some that do are in the process of restoring them and use their ‘modern’ vehicles in the meantime.
We tend to have a run out most months for all vehicles, which may or may not incorporate a quiz, treasure hunt or something similar and are organised by the club members. Impromptu runs out for the classic cars are held on occasion and these are, as the name suggests, arranged at short notice and can be arranged by any member. They take the form of a run to a tavern for coffee or lunch, or for supper in the summer. You can go as a group or alone and meet us at the destination. As there is little planning required there is no need to decide until the day whether you go or not.

The Paphos Classic Vehicle Club was formed in 2004 by several people with an interest in Classic Vehicles and the Classic Car movement generally. This followed an advertisement placed in the local paper in April 2003 by the man who became the Club President : Yiorgos Koutsides. The meetings started at the Sense Café in Coral Bay then moved to the Tasmaria Hotel apartments on Tomb of the Kings. In those days it was a group of classic car enthusiasts meeting on the 3rd Saturday in the month and organizing a leisurely drive on a Sunday and finishing with lunch at a taverna, which is pretty much the same today.

We are mostly based in Paphos in the Western part of Cyprus but have members and affiliations from all over the island and the world. We hold social events, we drive out for lunch - some times incorporating some type of puzzle during the drive, and we attend various motoring events held by other clubs throughout the year and all over the beautiful island of Cyprus.
The Club would have held its annual Classic Car show at Paphos harbour in October this year however due to the current Covid Restrictions it was forced to cancel. We hope once the situation resolves to re-schedule for May 2021.
