(Home > Join the Club: Club Introduction and Benefits)

A Brief Introduction

The object of the Club is to maintain as many A30 and A35 vehicles in good working order as is possible by helping, advising, encouraging and cultivating a spirit of friendship amongst owners and other interested people. Membership is therefore open to all owners and enthusiasts of the Austin A30/A35 range of vehicles.

The Club was formed by a small group of enthusiasts in 1970, which has grown over the years into an International Club with a membership totalling around 1,100 members. Though the core of the Club consists of UK members, the Club has representatives in Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Sweden and United States.

The Club is run on a day to day basis by a voluntary Committee of twelve officers elected annually by the Club membership. The Committee meets a minimum of two times per year in addition to the Annual General Meeting held at the National Rally.

Across the UK, twenty seven local Groups and contacts affiliated to the Owners Club have evolved. Their members normally meet on a monthly basis, in addition to shows and social events. Each year, one of the local Groups hosts the National Club Rally.
