0.gif (89283 bytes) The Jowett Car Club is the oldest one make car club in the world having been formed in 1923! Jowett Car Clubs sprang up in Bradford and the South of England in 1923. There were also a number of Jowett social clubs throughout the country, primarily to take part in hill climbs and time trials. The only one to survive the war was the Southern Jowett Car Club and the word “Southern” was omitted in 1964; hence our claim to be the oldest one make car club in the world. The Club became a limited company in 2007.

The club has members from all over the world with Jowett  affiliated clubs in Australia, New Zealand, Denmark , Sweden and the United  States. The Jupiter Owners Auto Club (JOAC) is also affiliated.

The aims of the Club are to encourage the maintenance, running and preservation of Jowett vehicles. To encourage members with help, technical back-up, spares and companionship; whether car, commercial, vintage, pre-war, post-war, tractor or stationary engine.

If you wish to join please fill in the joining form and send with your cheque by snail mail. Non-UK resident people can use electronic means!

 It is worth reading the rules and constitution to see how well the club is organised!

Benefits include a comprehensive spares scheme, a monthly magazine and technical assistance. In the U.K. social and sporting events are held in various regions.

Many members congregate together for a social weekend. Next year the Jowett Annual Weekend  in May. You can get a flavour for what happens by looking here at the one held in 2000 at Pitlochry or the Norwich JAW in 2002, or at York in 2004 or in Basingstoke in 2005. The webmaster's pictures of the Jowett Annual Weekend 2005 are here  See what you can be awarded on this web page.

Each of the eight regional sections of the UK club have a program of events. Contact me if you need to meet up with some Jowett enthusiasts. The North-West Section  can be found here.
