Welcome to South Hants Vehicle Preservation Society website.


We are a Society which is based in the Solent area and currently have a joint membership of around 600, with vehicles ranging from Victorian bicycles and steam traction engines through to cars motorcycles and assorted commercial vehicles of various ages. In fact, as long as it is not customised, we welcome anything transport related provided it is over 25 years old. You do not need to own a vehicle to be a member.

SHVPS Tangmere8 2017We meet up on the second Wednesday evening each month at The Lysses Hotel, Fareham from 7.30pm and usually have a run to a local place of interest on the last Sunday of each month.

Our social calendar includes an annual BBQ, skittles and quiz evenings and we even have a special Ladies’ Day with a free cream tea included for the ladies. In the winter, we hold a Dinner Dance and a Christmas Lunch. The majority of our events are subsidised for members.

Our main fund raising event is the highly successful and popular annual Classic Vehicle Show and Autojumble, held at Queen Elizabeth Country Park at Horndean, on the first Sunday in June.

New members are always welcome – please browse through our other pages for more information about our friendly club.

I hope this is okay?

Bought this little one last week via Ebay and collected from Waterlooville. The previous MOT was done in May 2015 and has only done 250 miles since then. The car look original and generally in good condition, just a bit poorly at the moment as the head gasket blew on our way to Gloucester, where it now lives. We got to Winchester and could go no further.

Does anyone recognise this fine example of the Morris Minor and can give me any history of the car (not necessarily its owner) as I have nothing other than it was allegedly restored in 2006. There is an SHVPS tax disc holder on the windscreen, hence this posting.

This car is local to Hampshire with the reg MOR 425F, started life as a Smoke Grey colour but has been resprayed to the dark blue (Trafalgar?). I would imagine it has been taken to shows.

Would appreciate any info, just for knowledge.
