The Classic Car Club Is a Dream Driver

Luxury Car Clubs: In 1995 the Kavanagh brothers redefined the parameters of car clubs with their innovative Classic Car Club. The outside-of-the-garage thinkers fathomed a concept where diehard car enthusiasts could get behind the wheel and drive as many classic cars as the club could offer. Ever since the appearance of that illuminated bulb appeared over the K-bros' heads, the Classic Car Club concept has grown to transatlantic status with a UK and a Manhattan club, respectively. The UK club boasts seven locations and over 1,000 members. The Manhattan club opened its doors the summer of 2005.

The Manhattan club's goal is to acquire 100 or more classic vehicles. Currently there are over 25 cars available, including a 1989 Ferrari 328GTS, a 1965 AC Shelby Cobra, a 1989 Rolls Royce Corniche II, a 1969 Camaro SS/RS, and a 1968 Lincoln Continental. Check out the club website for a complete list and details. Members only pay for fuel usage, as their membership fee covers other expenses. Membership rules are straightforward. Members pay a one-time initiation fee and yearly dues thereafter, granting them access to the pool of classic vehicles available at their club. They can drive the cars for up to 40 days a year.



Forty days is an approximation, as memberships come in various levels and are based on a point system. A vehicle can be reserved for up to five days. The CCC's website has a Points section that clarifies how the system works. If a member has points remaining at the end of the year, those points are carried over into the next two years of membership. Additionally, Manhattan members have access to the club's 9,500-square foot showroom for private and corporate events. A clubroom with lounge furniture and bar is also usable for such affairs.

Joining the Classic Car Club is a great way to enjoy a bevy of classic vehicles without incurring the heavy accompanying costs of ownership.
