Car Club at Virginia Tech

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I join the Car Club at Virginia Tech?

Joining the club is easy. Simply make an introduction thread on our forum and come to a meeting. Our meeting times may vary, but will always be posted on our Facebook page and/or our forum.

What is involved in joining?

The CCVT charges $20 a year for dues. This is payable in cash or check at any club event or online through the forum or even via paypal. Contact an officer for any further questions.

What does membership entitle me to?

Being a paid member of CCVT entitles you to using club tools, free entry to both car shows, access to the private section of the forums, membership cards, discounts with our sponsors, and free food at cookouts, tailgates and pizza parties. The money also goes towards the website, and other equipment the club has available.

Do I need a car to enter the CCVT?

No! Plenty of CCVT members are in a long transitional period between vehicles. We welcome everyone, regardless of if you drive an import, domestic, motorcycle, truck, bus or walk everywhere. All you need is a general interest in cars and the desire to learn more.

Can I become a member for only one semester?

We’d encourage you to join in the fall to fully benefit from membership in CCVT. That said, we understand that some people don’t discover CCVT until the spring, and do offer a discounted rate for those joining then.

What kind of motorsports is the club involved in?

The CCVT participates primarily in AutoX events and drag racing events. We also have members involved in track events at locations like Summit Point and VIR.

Justin fakes lifting a car.I have a 900 horsepower XYZ that would beat all your cars, lets street race?

The CCVT does not endorse or support any street racing, or any other illegal activities. We have set up AutoX caravans, nights at the drag strip, Dyno days, and many other events to satisfy everyones needs. Likewise, the CCVT is not a competiton for who has the most expensive or fastest car. As a diverse group we enjoy cars with 90hp as much as we enjoy the ones with 750. Multi-colored cars with homemade parts are heavily encouraged and welcomed into the club.

I know absolutely nothing about cars and only drive my moms ’87 Ford Taurus, should I join the club?

Again, the club is all about learning and meeting new people. Even if you don’t have a motorized vehicle of any sort, and don’t know what a transmission is, everyone is encouraged to join the club.
