The SVABC is a non-profit association representing specialty motor enthusiasts by dealing with all levels of government that may affect our hobby.
We at the SVABC are once again asking all Vintage and Collector car hobbyists to please join the Association in 2009. The SVABC was formed some 30 years ago to protect and expand the Vintage plated vehicles to the Collector plate status which allowed you more freedom and flexibility when driving your old cars.
We represent more than 50 clubs and hundreds of members in British Columbia in our meetings with ICBC and Motor Vehicles to keep your vehicle on the road. With Air Care behind us for now, we will be under increasing presssure in the future to control emissions now that greening the country is the new environmental concern.
We have been successful in the last two years to get the Modified Collector plate expanded from 1949 to 1958. We also worked with ICBC to arrive at a concensus on items for Vintage Accessories and also Safety upgrades.
We will continue to work with ICBC and the different Government agencies to keep what we already have and to possibly expand the Collector plate program. We request your support with your membership. The $10.00 you spend on joining the SVABC will go a long way in our continuing negotiations with the above.
