We all then headed to Inveraray on Loch Fyne, and parked the Cars all round the harbour, beside the famous Classic Puffer, "Vital Spark" then met up with some of the Oban Classic and the Triumph 6 clubs, the classic Trucks were to big for the harbour and parked at the back. The SDCCC, Helensburgh and the Darts parked at the front of Inveraray Castle with the permission of the Duke of Argyll.

How it all started, told by one of the Founders ( Neill Watt )
STIRLING AND DISTRICT CLASSIC CAR CLUB
In response to a small advertisement in the local press some 10 people attended a meeting in the Sword Hotel, Stirling, in August 2000. This was the start of the club and most of the attendees joined up at that meeting.
The early days of the club consisted of regular meetings and club outings. The meetings usually had a speaker – either invited or “home-grown” – who gave a talk on some topic of motoring interest. The outings took the form of club runs, visits to local motor museums or other places of interest. Members were all enthusiasts and it showed.
As time went on members attended shows in the central area and the membership grew as the club became better known. We had our own committee, our own constitution and soon our own newsletter. We were on the map and membership continued to grow.
In 2004 the suggestion was made that we were big enough to run our own event. A date was fixed, a venue was secured and our first annual show took place in Strathallan Games Park, Bridge of Allan in May 2005. This was deemed a success by both club and public and has since become an annual event with a firm place in the motoring calendar.
We have recently held our 8th annual show which attracted a large entry and a large attendance by the public. As well as allowing enthusiasts from far and wide to indulge themselves the annual show has been good for charities. Each year we nominate our chosen charities. To date, over the course of 8 annual shows we have donated some £27,000 to various charities.
