From its establishment in 1966, the focal point of the Jersey Old Motor Club's calendar has been the staging of rallies and other events at which members can exercise their cars. The very first, described as an 'outdoor gathering', took place on 6 November 1966.

Membership numbers, and the number and scope of events, continued to increase during the 1980s and 90s, culminating in the 1999 centenary celebration of the first Jersey motor car. As it reaches its golden anniversary the present Club President, Stephanie Constantine, can boast its highest ever membership and over 300 historic vehicles on its register. Several car and social events are planned throughout the year for the celebrations and the next 50 years augur equally well.
