About the FIVA
The “Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens” (FIVA) was founded in 1966 in response to an idea formulated by a handful of organisations representing the interests of historic vehicle enthusiasts within a number of different countries. The founders felt that the time had come for an international body to promote and guide the interests of the historic vehicle movement throughout the world. At present FIVA can boast over 85 member organisations in more than 62 countries throughout the world, which in turn represent more than 1.500.000 historic vehicle enthusiasts.
FIVA Socio-Economic Survey Launched
Essen – 26 March 2014 - FIVA launches new European historic vehicle survey
FIVA, the global historic vehicle interest organisation, today started a new international survey. It focuses on the three pillars of the historic vehicle world: the owners, the owner clubs, and the businesses offering services and products to the owners. The survey will run simultaneously in 15 European Union member countries. FIVA wants to collect fresh data on ownership, usage, economic value, events, market trends and many more aspects. The survey will be done in cooperation with professional market research and academic partners.
This guarantees that the output of the survey meets highest privacy and quality standards, And therefore can be used by FIVA, in her contacts with politicians, authorities and other stakeholders, as valuable evidence for the social economic importance of the historic vehicle movement in European countries and worldwide.
The FIVA and the impact of personal transportation on society
The Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA) is the worldwide organization dedicated to the preservation, protection and promotion of historic vehicles and related culture.
- We preserve historic vehicles, related artifacts and records through research and cataloguing as well as the development of guidelines, standards, and education which ensure that authentic examples of our automotive past are available for future generations.
- We protect the responsible use of historic vehicles through legislative monitoring, the development of recommended policies, specific supportive action and effective relations with national and international authorities.
- We promote historic vehicle culture through communication, development of international events, forums, and seminars. We provide formal recognition and support for activities that are consistent with our ideals.
