Welcome to the website of the Contemporary Historical Vehicle Association! The CHVA endeavors to give all the benefits of a large, all-encompassing club dedicated to the preservation of the Depression/World War II era and later vehicles. The purpose of the club is to provide a place where publications and activities will be designed to cater to this particular era of vehicles and auto-related memories. We feel these vehicles deserve a place where those people who consider them to be of historical and sentimental value, can follow those convictions in fellowship with people of similar interest.
CHVA Regions enjoy activities that include cruise nights, judged car shows, day trips, weekend tours, and national tours. To join CHVA you do not need to own a classic car. Just contact any Region near you. If there is not a Region in your vicinity you may join the National organization and even establish your own Region.
