This is YOUR club, keep it interesting for everyone by sending articles to the Magazine


Welcome to the Official Standard Motor Club Site: Whilst membership of other Classic Car clubs is in decline, the membership of this Club is rising month on month. One reason might be our online 24/7 Spares Shop with the largest stock of Standard Spares available anywhere in the World. Or maybe its because of our active Local Groups, but some think its our regularly delivered full-colour monthly magazine and lively UK wide events programme,Covid permitting. If you own any Standard, or intend to own one in the near future, you owe it to yourself to join our friendly membership! We welcome owners from any country and our unrivalled Spares Service is available to all.

The true benefits of belonging to the Standard Motor Club have come to light with the terrific help that Brian Parkes, the Pre-48 spares officer has given me in sourcing ALL the parts for a complete engine rebuild of my Flying 8 tourer in just  a few days. I urge anyone with a Standard  to join the Club,  they wont be sorry.

BREXIT – CHANGE IN TAXES FOR EU MEMBERS

The United Kingdom formally exits from the European Union on 1st Jan 2021.

As part of the recently agreed trading agreement,  there is no longer a need for the United Kingdom to collect VAT on sales  to EU customers. The VAT on Spares and other Purchases is reduced from 20% to 0%. This brings you into line with customers from the Rest of the World.

We are obliged to publish prices in our online shop inclusive of VAT since the majority of our sales are to the UK.

However, if you are in the EU (or the RoW ) and purchase something, the VAT will be automatically deducted from your purchase price and carriage when you checkout the Shop.

Note that this does not apply to Club memberships or renewals which are already zero-rated for VAT. These prices will therefore remain the same.

However, Customs Authorities at the border to the EU Country now have the rights to level import Duty and the equivalent of VAT to the goods before release to the end customer. The customer is liable for these charges and they are outside the control of the Club.

Can you help your Club?

Your Club is manned entirely by Volunteers. We need some help to keep it running efficiently. We have the following vacancy:

Our Treasurer wants to retire, so we urgently need to replace him. Knowledge of Book-keeping would be an advantage, as would keyboard skills, but they aren’t strictly necessary, as full training and familiarisation on our computerised system will be given

Perhaps you are newly retired and looking for a part-time pastime, or have just a little time you could donate? Please help us! Call Lynda on 01727 868405 for a no-obligation chat.
