Who is Who

The FIVA Organisation

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.

The board is formed by the president and 8 (senior) Vice-Presidents and a number of directors for specific tasks. Since FIVA is a world-wide organisation, the board and its directors are assisted by Ambassadors in the different areas of the world.
