Vintage Triumph Register

VTR works to maximize the enjoyment all of us have when driving a Triumph and emphasizes camaraderie and social interaction among Triumph owners. As the only North American organization which recognizes each and every Triumph model, we hope you’ll want to join us as we strive to achieve these goals.

We also hope you’ll attend either the National or regional gatherings of VTR members. These conventions are always fun for attendees, and joining a VTR chapter will introduce you to others in your area who share your passion for Triumphs. Car shows, rallies, autocrosses, tours, vintage racing, and social gatherings are a regular part of the VTR scene.


As late as 1970, despite a long and prestigious history of automobile production dating to 1923, and a corporate history reaching back to the 1880’s, there was no American organization dedicated to the history, preservation, and enjoyment of Triumph automobiles. Aware that a large percentage of Triumphs built since World War II had been sold in the USA and Canada, a dedicated group of Triumph owners, enthusiasts, and historians in 1973 planted the early seeds of what would become the Vintage Triumph Register. In 1974 the organization began to take shape, and by January, 1975, the club’s first professionally edited and printed magazine appeared. At last there was a club for all Triumph owners; and growth of the club since has been steady, with more than 2,600 members!

An important annual event is the VTR Convention. Called the North American Triumph Challenge, it is held in a different state each year. Every convention includes a fun-filled activity schedule with rallies, autocross, a judged concours d’elegance and participant’s choice car show, autojumble, parts vendor sales, and much, much more. VTR’s national gatherings are always exciting, rewarding and over the years have introduced many, many Triumph owners to one another and produced fond memories. We hope you’ll join VTR and one of our over 70 local VTR Chapters, as we pursue a bright and promising future for the ownership, operation, and preservation of Triumph automobiles.
