There are five car clubs around the world that cater for those interested in Jowetts. This website provides a means for bringing those people, and the knowledge they have, together. Some of the links in the left panel take you to webpages about the Jowett Car Club Limited based in the United Kingdom, but catering for all regions. Some links in the right panel are under construction. They provide a growing list of interactive services.

Telegraph and Argus 1922

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.

A re-enactment of the first Southern club run took place from Titsey Hill on Sunday 25th August 2013. See here for details, and see here for the re-enactment of the Northern Club run from Bradford Industrial Museum to Boroughbridge on 11th August 2013 .
