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.
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'll give you over 300 phone numbers. All the committee members
and reps carry out duties on a voluntary basis. The subscriptions
are therefore only used to finance the production of the club
magazine and expenses associated with getting the club displays
- 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 Derbyshire BBQ. 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.
Magazine - JBA
News is the magazine of the JBA Owners Club and it is published
quarterly. 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.
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.
- The club have 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 from April
2012. Renewable each April.
