AJS 9 Car Club

Welcome

Welcome to the AJS 9 Car Club website.

The AJS Car Club was formed in 1991 to bring together owners of the remaining AJS Cars.

Having acquired his AJS two - seater and looking to commence restoration, the club's founder,  Peter set about tracing and contacting owners of any remaining AJS cars with the help of Alec Stevens, son of one of the brothers who founded the AJS company. By October 1991 a number of owners of AJS cars had been located and Alec was again approached to give his blessing to a club being started.

Further owners were located and an inaugural meeting of the AJS owners club was organised for 24 October 1993 at the Crown Inn, Hopton Wafers, Nr Kidderminster.

In May 1996 the club had a stand at the "Auto Windscreen Century of Motoring" with two cars on display and another taking part in the cavalcade. The following year the club took part in a show at Peterborough showground over the May bank holiday and in September 1998 the club met at BMI Marston Ltd and the same weekend took part in a parade at the Black Country museum, the first of a number of visits to the museum which now includes in its collection two AJS Cars, a "Stevens Light Commercial Vehicle" (donated by Alec Stevens) and two AJS radios (also donated by one of our club members). 

By this time the club was in contact with a number of AJS Owners in Australia who had travelled to the UK with their cars to attend club events and so in 2000 the club returned the visit. Two AJS cars were packed in a container and shipped to Australia whilst five club members flew to join them on one of the club's biggest adventures to date. That year also saw the club meet at the National Motorcycle Museum and the Heritage Centre at Gaydon.  

Club members meeting for a weekend soon became an annual event. Organised by a different club member each weekend usually in their home location. Not only do these weekends provide an opportunity for club members to get together, but also to give the cars a "good airing". Taking place over two days generally involving a run of between 50 - 60 miles per day visiting local points of interest. Always enjoyable, these trips often require members to show the skills and innovative to overcome breakdowns and get all cars back to their home base.

Other events the club has attended include the 80th Anniversary of the VSCC at Peterborough showground, the Restoration Show at Birmingham NEC and we did regularly attend the Piston & Props event at Sywell Aerodrome.  

In 2007 the Spares Committee was formed since replacement items for these rare cars were getting difficult to find. Unfortunately, one of the Club Members passed away leaving behind his lifetimes collection of AJS cars & parts. A number of Club members contributed money to allow the Club to purchase this complete "Workshop" of AJS items including two cars, engines, gearbox's etc. A much-appreciated Club member kindly provided a 20-foot container to store all the items and the "AJS Car Club Spares" was formed. Since then, the club has purchased other AJS spares from former members. Today it's almost possible to purchase from the Stores, the parts to assemble a complete AJS car, excepting the bodywork which was normally eaten away by woodworm!!  

Ever since the club started, the Stevens family have been closely involved, from the initial letter and donation by Alec Stevens on 12 August 2003. His elder brother Geoff Stevens was invited to become the club's first president.
