The Inter-Register Club
750 Motor Club (Austin 7s),
The 750 Motor Club was formed in 1939 on an idea of Bill Boddy's to promote low cost motor sport for impecunious Austin Seven owners.
One of the reasons for creating the club was the demise of class H racing for 750cc cars - the lowest division was to include cars up to 1100cc. Hence Bill felt the need for a '750' club. 71 years on, Bill Boddy is still the club's president and the club now runs about 12 different racing formulae (including Austin Sevens), sporting car trials and, most importantly in this context, it is the oldest Austin Seven club. A7 activities include races, trials, autotests, rallies, runs and overseas adventures.
The club is geographically split into centres around the country, some specialising in one or more of the club's activities and the Brooklands Centre is one of the more active 'Austin Seven' centres. They annually run a full calendar of very varied events for A7s and invite other clubs to join in.
The Austin Seven Trial at Cobham every April sees many VSCC (Vintage Sports Car Club) A7 competitors taking part. The Centre set a standard of exciting events for Austin 7s by organising a series of major continental runs starting with a run to Monte Carlo with 42 Sevens in 1974. Then came San Marino in 76, Andorra in 78 and back to Monte Carlo in 1980. The last of this style of event was to Leichtenstein in 1984. Since then others have taken up the baton and organised splendid events - for example Ken Cooke's Eurotours - enthusiastically taken up by Austineers from many clubs. For the last dozen years or so the Centre has put on continental motoring "holidays" including trips to France (Brittany), northern Spain, Norway and Germany.

Austin Ten Drivers Club (ATDC)
The Austin Ten Drivers Club was formed in 1965, when Austin Tens represented "shoestring motoring" and daily transport for the impoverished student and motoring enthusiast. Many years have passed since then and now the humble Austin Ten is widely recognised as a classic car in its own right. Affordable, economical and surprisingly practical, even on the roads of today, the Austin Ten is a worthwhile car to own, use and enjoy.
The Club, which has over 1700 members, has also grown to include all Austins of 10 hp to 28 hp from 1931 to 1939, so there is bound to be a car within the ATDC to suit you. Be it a small or large, saloon or tourer, economical or sporting, there is a car for all pockets. We are largely informal and a happy bunch.

The Crossley Register exists both to assist owners of vehicles of all kinds made by Crossley Motors Ltd and collect and maintain records of the company. It is fairly safe to say that if information about Crossley Motors Ltd and its products is not available from the Register then it is probably not available anywhere.
The membership is world-wide and it is not necessary to own a Crossley vehicle to subscribe to the Register. An annual vehicle rally is run in the UK.
A thrice yearly newsletter is produced which includes historical articles, stories of members vehicles, spares and vehicles for sale and wanted, and technical help.

There is a very good bi-monthly bulletin containing reports of Register activities, members' news, rebuilding and repairs, articles featuring Humbers, photographs, and advertisements of cars and spares for sale and wanted.
Members serve on a panel to answer questions of a technical nature on the running, maintenance and rebuilding of the various models. There is also a Spares Register for the acquisition and disposal of spare parts, and the making of some unobtainable spares.
There is abundant technical information available for the various models as well as a library of previous technical articles as printed in the Bulletin over the years.
Copies of handbooks, road tests, etc. may be obtained from the library, and advice can be given on insurance, reclamation of original registration numbers and the history of the vehicles known to us.
The Registrar will be happy to answer any queries about the Register and to send out and subsequently receive applications for membership. On joining, members will receive a complete 'starter pack' of information which could be of considerable assistance, especially if they are Humber owners for the first time.

Pre-War Austin 7 Club (PWA7C)
Nearly fifty years old, with over a thousand members spread across the United Kingdom as well as abroad, the Pre-War Austin Seven Club is the largest international organisation catering exclusively for these marvellous little cars. The Club has always encouraged car usage in whatever form, and throughout the year its members gather to participate and also compete in a wide range of events.
Notable among these is the Bert Hadley Championship - a series of sprints and speed hill climbs held to celebrate the memory of Bert Hadley, who as a works Austin driver during the 1930s achieved outstanding results in the giant- killing little single seaters built at Longbridge. This entirely amateur Championship caters for both track and road cars built from Austin Seven components, and comprises about a dozen rounds each year which are held at a variety of venues across the country.
On the trials front the Club promotes the Grasshopper Challenge, this name recalling the works trials cars that were known as the Grasshoppers in their heyday. Club members are invited to participate in about half a dozen "one day, one site" trials organised by other clubs each year, as well as in our own Winter Trial held in Derbyshire shortly after Christmas.
For those more interested in road events Club members may participate in the wide range of friendly competitions organised under the Inter-Register banner, as well as in the Club's own non-competitive road runs. These usually include an annual "Coast to Coast Run" across the north of England.
Regional groups in many areas of the country cater for members who like to meet both socially and to exchange technical advice and opinions . Likewise the Club's monthly magazine covers a range of topics from the nostalgic to the technical.
Further information on the above, together with contact details, is to be found on the Club's web site at:

The Jowett Car Club Ltd.
The Jowett Car Club is active in many ways in order to achieve the dual objectives of the preservation and use of Jowett cars and commercials, stationary engines and crawler tractors.
We are delighted to be the oldest Club in the world for one make of Car. Founded in 1923 as the Southern Jowett Car Club, the name became Jowett Car Club in 1964 in response to a growing membership. We are a Club of over 650 members who pool our expertise to help each other enjoy the benefits of Jowett motoring, maintenance and restoration.
We encourage members to become actively involved in all of our Club activities. The highlight of our Club year is the Annual National Rally usually held over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend at a different venue each year. This provides an opportunity for both public display and use of our Jowetts in wonderful surroundings.
Jowett Cars - The Jowett Brothers began production of their light car, powered by a 816cc - 6.4hp flat twin engine, in 1910. By 1920 just 60 cars had been produced and the engine was increased to 903cc - 7hp. 1936 saw the introduction of the 10-4, Jowett's first flat four at 1166cc - 10hp. The twin engine was increased to 946cc in 1937 giving 8hp.
Britain's first all new postwar car; the Jowett Javelin was launched in 1948 powered by a 1486cc OHV flat four engine. This was an expensive quality car and its performance led to competition successes, and to demand outpacing supply. Launched in 1950 the Jupiter sports car used Javelin running components in an innovative tubular chassis, and with an aluminium body. The Jupiter was produced in low volume and scored many competition successes including at LeMans and Monte Carlo.
