A very warm welcome to The Cambridge-Oxford Owners Club Website.

It is now over 30 years since this Club was founded and, I am delighted to say, despite a general downturn in enthusiasm for classic cars over the past few years, our membership continues to grow.

The COOC were one of the last classic car clubs to finally pull out of the layby and onto the 'Information Superhighway' and get ourselves online. We studied plenty of other websites and looked into what our members, potential members and motoring journalists may want to get from our site. The result, we hope, is a very simple, effective approach which combines plenty of information about the Club with facts, figures and photographs about the vehicles we cater for. We are confident this will be a useful resource to motoring journalists and enthusiasts whilst demonstrating the benefits of the club to potential members throughout the World.

Our website has been built as a low-maintenance site and the only part which is kept regularly updated is our Events Diary which lists all up and coming Rallies, Shows and Events. If you are organising a COOC rally and it does not appear in the Events Diary, contact us and we will make sure it is added to the Diary.

Since the successful launch of this Website in October 2002 (with some great reviews) we have now updated and expanded most pages to include more information and a lot more photographs. We hope you find it informative and useful.

The Club also now has its own online Forum, run for us by COOC member Eddie Foster. Join the Farina Forum now at It is a great place to exchange ideas and get help with technical problems as well as buying and selling spares.

2009 saw the 50th Anniversary of the BMC 1.5 and 3 Litre Saloons. The Club had a very busy year to commemorate the fact and, over the next few years will be commemorating many other anniversaries.

The Cambridge-Oxford Owners Club is the largest International Club catering for these cars - and the least expensive too. If you are not already a member why don't you join us?

We now even have the option of Online Payments to speed up the joining process!


With best wishes,

Taff Gillingham, Chairman
