Hello all

Well here we are again, still looking forward to a release from the Covid 19 lockdown measures which restrict us to meeting with no more than 6 persons outside. Things seem to be looking brighter now though and fingers crossed this will stay that way. We would like to welcome the new members who have given us their contact details recently and look forward to meeting them ASAP.

This month on the 25th we will participate in the no contact FBHCC National Drive it Day which this year is supporting the Childline charity. The route for Manhood club members would start from Fishbourne on the A259 at around 11.00am and proceed west on the route toward Emsworth .

We have attached a message from Barry with more information.

We have no other events booked for this month but we are hopefully that next month on the 23rd May we can have a meet at East Beach Selsey 10.00-12.30 . We understand that up to 30 can meet outside and marshalls would ensure that no group would be in an area with more than that number on the public car park . This would of course be subject to the latest guidance . We believe Richard’s catering kiosk will be open.

Drive it Day, Sunday April 25th 2021

Last month I brought to your attention Drive it Day. A National event which will take place later this month.

I’ve already had a respectable response from our Members, but more I’m sure would like to attend, but have not got around to letting me know. So please let me know by return of email to ensure sufficient plaques are ordered.

Not only will this event give you the opportunity to dust off your pride and joy, check it’s safe and drivable but also allow you to have a relaxing drive with like-minded friends. If you wish you can contribute to the chosen charity, NSPCC Childline. Two options are available:

· You can purchase a special Childline rally plate to affix to the front of your car, these plates cost £10 each and are available from: www.driveitday.co.uk/shop.

· Or you can purchase one of our own specially prepared adhesive windscreen Rally Plaques for a minimum donation of £2-00. To obtain this plaque I will require from you a cheque made payable to me, Barry Twitchen for £2-00 (or a greater amount if you wish) together with a normal sized white/brown stamped self addressed envelope for the return of the plaque.

So please let me know your intentions asap so I can organise the plaques.

I look forward to your early response.

Many thanks,

Barry (events organiser)

About Us

Manhood Classics Car Club was started by Les Payne and Mick Hemmings in 2010 with informal meets based local to Selsey. As interest spread and the number of participating classic car enthusiasts grew, the venue moved to Sidlesham Football Club. December 2016 saw our Sunday venue relocate to the Selsey East Beach car park.  


Day time monthly meets are held at the Selsey East Beach car and boat park, The Kingsway, PO20 0SZ on the third Sunday at 10am.

Evening monthly meets are held at Selsey Football / Social Club, High Street, Selsey, PO20 0QG on the first Thursday at 7.30pm.

Our gatherings are friendly and social. The Sunday meets, being in the daytime, result in a great range of classics and sports to view. To keep our group open and friendly, there is no joining nor membership fees, just turn up and enjoy yourself. 


There are a number of events throughout the year, the summer months being the busiest. If you are interested in what we do, please come along to one of our events. Everyone is welcome.​

Food and drinks are available at both our monthly evening and daytime meets.
