About us

Founded in 1984, this non-profit organisation is made up of lovers of historic vehicles. Our aim is to bring together people who, like you, love beautiful old mechanical vehicles, both to restore them and to drive them, and to pass on our passion.

Our club is made up of enthusiasts who help each other to find the right vehicles, the right parts and the right places to visit, and the wrong places to avoid. We pool our experience so that everyone can benefit from each other’s when researching, restoring, registering and using our historic vehicles.

The Rétromobile Club de Spa is a founder member of the BEHVA – BElgian Historic Vehicle Association (formerly FBVA). It is also one of the few clubs to be a direct member of FIVA – Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens.

To be a member of our club, you don’t have to own a historic vehicle, but you do have to like them. We accept historic vehicles, known as oldtimers, that are over 30 years old, as well as youngtimers aged between 20 and 29. These two categories are recognised by the FIVA & BEHVA. However, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that customised vehicles or modern bodywork based on old chassis or electric or retrofit vehicles are not admitted.

To find out more about our activities, we invite you to take part in one of our many outings or attend one of our activities

Rétrofolies de Spa

Our club’s showcase event, every two years the town of Spa is reserved exclusively for historic vehicles for two days. The event attracts almost 1,000 participating vehicles and over 12,000 visitors.

The programme includes tourist drives, a retro atmosphere and entertainment, and a concours d’élégance at the end of the day.

Bourse de Spa

Another of the club’s major events is its famous bourse, which takes place in the large hall of the old Casino de Spa.

A unique setting, which makes this bourse unique in Europe. Over 100 exhibitors and 25 vehicles for sale, plus a themed exhibition every year.

A unique atmosphere and setting to discover every year !

Our activities

First and foremost, it’s a club with a full agenda from year to year, including car and moped rides, stays and static events, visits to car shows and other historic vehicle events, and monthly meetings with occasional guests.

A friendly atmosphere above all.
