The North Alabama British Motoring Society was
founded in 1985 for local British car enthusiasts to get together
and support each other. Since then, the club has grown steadily and
now boasts over 80 members in
Northern Alabama and southern Middle Tennessee.
While founded as a club of British car enthusiasts, NABMS is
open to enthusiasts of all European cars.
Currently most members own or lust after some sort of MG,
Triumph, Austin-Healey, Mini, or Jaguar.
However, many club members also appreciate and own cars from
Germany, Sweden, France,
Yugoslavia, and Italy as well. Membership in the club is open to anyone.
Enthusiasm for British and European cars, not ownership, is
the only requirement!
What Is Our Purpose?
Support of members includes, but is not limited
to, unlimited access to the wealth of club member knowledge and
experience, use of club-owned specialty tools and regalia, planning
of fun driving events, and the general camaraderie that comes from
folks from all sorts of backgrounds sharing the same rewarding
experience (British car ownership).
What Do We Do?
In addition to the monthly club meetings, NABMS
has several scheduled events every year.
The biggest events are our two annual car shows, the
Auto & Bike Expo held in early June, and the Father’s Day Show, held
over Father’s Day weekend inside the Colonial Mall in Decatur, AL.
In addition to these annual events, NABMS members get
together frequently for driving events, tech sessions, summer time
monthly cruise-ins, and a yearly Christmas party where members each
make a Toys for Tots donation.
How Do you Participate?
There are no requirements for membership, although enthusiasm for
British or European cars or motorcycles definitely helps!
Membership dues are $15/year, which goes toward the cost of
organizing events, an occasional newsletter, and miscellaneous club
expenses. Joining NABMS
is simple! Just fill out
the membership form and send it in.
Or, better yet, bring it with you to a meeting or other club
event and give it to a club officer.
That way you can get to know club officers and members at the
