BMCNE is …


The British Motorcars of New England (BMCNE) is an active club with events every month. Our members are passionate about their cars and can help you get the most from your British car. If you are thinking about buying one, or if you are working to get yours back on the road, the club offers a wealth of information and hands-on experience. Our members have the knowledge that can help you improve your car’s performance, reliability and appearance. We offer friendly and informative gatherings in a relaxing environment.


British Motorcars of New England is a non-profit public interest organization dedicated to the antique and classic British cars. The Club is active in both vehicle safety and classic car preservation issues and disseminates information through its newspaper and monthly meetings.


Members throughout New England make the Club accessible to people in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine. We also co-sponsor events all over the region, including the famous “Fraternity Tours” that involve other clubs as well.
