The oldest one-make car club.
An advert appeared in the Bradford Telegraph and Argus on 12 May 1922 causing the formation of the Southern Jowett Car Club, from whence the present club can trace its ancestry. The Southern Jowett Car Club held its first rally on 26 August 1923.
The car in the logo from a period photograph taken in 1923 on the Scottish Tests rally is a 1923 Short Two that is still alive and well. Click on the logo to see a high definition image.

Formed in 1923, the Jowett Car Club claims to be the oldest one-make car club in the world. The club has used computers since 1974 and its old website remains here. A forum is accessible to those interested in the Jowett marque and an interactive library is available to club members. Please register on them.
The annual meeting in May brings hundreds of members and their cars together.
Members provide voluntary services that cater for Jowett owners and those interested in the cars and their history.
An insurance scheme is offered by three companies that support the club based on the business they get from club members.
Owning a Jowett can be a very rewarding experience. Make sure you are protecting your project and loved ones with comprehensive car insurance. It is best to be covered when the unexpected happens.
