Up till now, Nepal, Bosnia and Namibia might not have been the first countries to spring to mind when thinking of the classic vehicle movement. Yet each is a nation with a strong ethos of historic vehicle ownership and enjoyment – and a unique history of extraordinary cars.

By becoming members of FIVA (the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens, or international federation of historic vehicles), organisations from these three countries have demonstrated their commitment to the international historic vehicle movement.

“It is with great delight that we welcome Vintage & Classic Motor Inc Nepal, the Oldtimer Club of Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina, and – as a Museum member – the Old Wheelers Club of Namibia, to our global community of historic vehicle enthusiasts,” says FIVA’s Director for Membership, Howard Danino.

“Each of these countries embodies a distinctive car culture, and our existing members from 65 nations will be enriched by association with three such vibrant new members. It’s clear that the passion for historic vehicles we all share is becoming an increasingly global phenomenon. This can only be good news for the future of the movement.”

The organisations that have committed to join FIVA are:

Vintage & Classic Motor Inc. Nepal

Of the 131 members on the club’s books, a significant number are lifetime members, and there are also 26 registered vehicles with the oldest being a 1928 Ford Model A Standard Phaeton 35A.

Oldtimer Club of Mostar, Bosnia & Herzegovina

The current membership is 145 individuals with 45 vehicles, the oldest being a 1929 Mercedes SSK. By joining FIVA, the club hopes to spread through Bosnia and Herzegovina, attracting others to become members.

Old Wheelers Club of Namibia (Museum member)

In June 1986, 26 historic car enthusiasts got together to form a club with the aim of encouraging the ownership, use, restoration and preservation of motor vehicles more than 25 years old. The membership has since grown to more than 500 and the club is about to start work on building ‘The National Motoring Museum’ in Namibia.
