About the JBA Owners Club


The Club is an non profit making organization and was formed in 1987 by Geoff Payne M.B.E. five years after the first JBA was built. Geoff's idea was to form a club to help individuals build their JBAs. Three models were available at that time, the Falcon Roadster from 1982, then in 1985 the Javelin (shown right) and the Falcon Plus 2.The Club is extremely friendly and has increased in size from its humble beginnings. The prime purpose of the club is to help members build their cars.


If you have a problem you can be sure that at least one of our members have had the same problem and solved it. Club membership is scattered over the British Isles and indeed Europe, so there will be somebody near you to call on. If all you need is a friendly voice at the other end of the phone, we can put you in touch with another member. All Steerinbg Group and reps carry out duties on a voluntary basis. The subscriptions are therefore only used to finance the production of the club magazine, the Club's shop and expenses associated with getting the club displays to shows.

Events

We meet numerous times in the year at all the major shows and factory open days plus events that we organize ourselves. There are meetings and outings held all over the UK including annual events such as the Stoneleigh Kit Car Show. Annual outings like the Welsh tour. Even trips abroad. New members or builders should come along to a meeting in your local area with your ordinary car. You will receive a lot of information and help. You don't have to wait till your car is built.

Club Magazine

JBA News is the magazine of the JBA Owners Club and it is usually published in Spring, Summer and Winter. It covers club news, future events, show reports, personality profiles, new legislation, free members adverts, for sale or wanted items as well as technical hints and tips. Members who join the club part way through the year receive all the back issues of the magazine for that year as the Club likes new members to think that they get their moneys worth. Contributions from young and old are always welcomed by the editor You will appreciate that it's success depends entirely on the amount of effort members are willing to put into it. So send in your stories. Hints and Tips. Technical Knowledge. Build details. Days out with your Falcon. Shows you have attended. Photos of your car, in fact anything at all.

New members are always welcome, even non owners who have a healthy interest in JBA Cars, but only wish to receive the magazine and be kept informed of developments. The Club would however prefer more members to take an active part in the running of the Club, so if you fancy organizing a rally or outing, the committee would like to hear from you. Funds are available from the treasurer for these activities.

Discounts

A 20% discount off the advertised price in the Club Shop is available to members (not off p&p). The Club has arranged discounts with several suppliers, including accessories and components from various outlets and Insurance packages. For new owners and builders this can be a terrific saving and it is well worth joining the Club to take advantage of these discounts. In fact the savings you can achieve can pay your membership fees for a number of years. The membership fee is only £16.00 this year. Renewable each April.
