The first record of the club is a meeting at The George Hotel in Morden on 23rd September 1958. A working name of "St George's Car Club" was later refined to "The Georgian Car Club", then to "The South Of The Thames" and, subsequently, "South Thames Car Club".

 

When applying for affiliation to the RAC in 1963, the "Southern Car Club" name was adopted in order to avoid confusion with the Mid-Thames Car Club.
