We partner with you to preserve the use of special interest vehicles on our roads and to connect with special interest vehicle related businesses.

The language used by politicians, some lobby groups and benefitting businesses is rapidly changing around the topic of climate change, electric vehicles, emissions and the life span of fossil fuels.

As special interest vehicle owners we have to engage in the discussions and prepare for potential regulatory and or compliance changes around the use of our vehicles.


The Special Interest Vehicle Association of  New Zealand (SIVANZ) provides a connectivity and support platform for individuals who currently don’t have any club or group to represent their interests, or, special interest vehicle (SIV) owners who are looking for an alternative organisation.

SIVANZ wants to make your voice count and be actively involved in the issues that matter and impact on our ability to use and own SIV’s. We can do this collectively much better than we can do it alone.

Create a Membership Forum and business networking events exclusively for special interest vehicle manufacturers and suppliers.
Connect Special Interest Vehicle Manufacturers and Suppliers. Developing strength that comes from membership numbers
We want to support and host events that showcase your cars.
We will lobby for and on behalf of all members.
The Special Interest Vehicle Association of New Zealand will monitor regulatory and compliance change proposals to ensure special interest vehicle owners are not treated unfairly compared to other road users.
The individual Member Forum allows you to keep in touch with friends and new colleagues.
