The Durban Early Car Club was formed in 1980 with 19 members and over the years has stabilized between 75 and 100 members. It was formed as an organisation that took into account the less fortunate members of society i.e. pensioners, physically disabled, Reach for a Dream children etc. To which end they have taken out lots of old folk for lunches, dinners and trips around the countryside, donated several wheel chairs to the Open Air School, fridges and washing machines to several Old Age Homes etc.

In 1991 the club started what was to become the biggest Motor Show in KZN at the Durban Exhibition Centre where they had about 300 Vintage / Classic cars and motorcycles, about 10 modern dealerships displaying new cars and bikes and 26 stall holders selling automotive articles. It grew from about 13000 visitors in the first year to over 40,000 visitors in its 5th year. It became far too big for DECC as a club to organise so it was handed over to a professional company in 1996 whereby it became much more of a modern vehicle show.

In 1998 the first Prowl was organised and DECC went to the Pretoria Cars in the Park and since then the Prowl has visited Bloemfontein, Johannesburg, Kimberley, St. Lucia, Drakensburg, Paulpietersburg, KZN South & North Coasts.

We look forward to meeting you, your family and friends.
