The history of the VX4/90 Drivers' Club

During the mid-1980's, a group of friends living in and around Oxford, all owning and sharing enthusiasm for Vauxhall's FD and FE Series VX4/90 saloons, dubbed themselves "The Vauxhall VX4/90 Drivers Club".

In 1986, one of the group decided to take the "Club" a step further. A letter was published in Practical Classics magazine, asking if FD and FE enthusiasts elsewhere in the country would be interested in joining a club catering for the cars. Over the course of the following few weeks, the number of letters and phone calls in response to the letter ran into three figures. So was born the "official" Vauxhall VX4/90 Drivers Club.

Although not apparent from the name, the club welcomes owners and enthusiasts of all the FD and FE bodied Vauxhalls - Victors, Ventoras, VX series and, of course, the sporting VX4/90s too.

The club endeavours to provide an active events diary for the enjoyment of members, which includes not only attendance at organised shows such as the Greenwoods events, the Bromley Pageant of Motoring and the VBOA Rally at Billing Aquadrome, but also extends to holding its own meetings at venues such as the Imperial War Museum at Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire, the RAF Museum at Hendon, and Knebworth House in Hertfordshire.
