Latest Idle Chatter
Jan-Feb: Posted

Welcome to the official website of the 1100 club

50 years of the Morris 1100The 1100 Club was formed in 1985 to cater for owners of the BMC 1100/1300 range of cars, Austin, Morris, Wolseley, MG, Riley and Vanden Plas.

The aim of the club is to provide members with technical help, support and information and to keep as many 1100/1300 cars on the road for as long as possible.

The 1100 club also produces a bi-monthly magazine, "Idle Chatter", six times a year.

LEJOG Tour SignageTo celebrate fifty years of the 1100/1300 we took our great cars on an epic adventure from Land's End to John o' Groats completing our historic journey at the National Rally in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

The journey took place over six days (and 1,600 miles!) starting at Land's End on Sunday 5 August 2012, and visited sites where the car was manufactured and some interesting sightseeing tours along the way..
