Introducing the Online Austin Seven Club:
2011 marks the relaunch of our internet based Club for Austin Seven Enthusiasts. The Club's activities are mainly centred around this website www.OA7C.com which we aim to develop into the essential resource for Austin Seven owners and those who are interested in A7s but may not currently own one.
The website has sections devoted to A7 related news, events, technical tips, forums, galleries and regular features by members of the OA7C. The site is accessible to anyone to promote interest in A7s to the uninitiated but there is a password protected area available to Members only which covers issues in much greater depth.
The Club aims to work with the existing A7 Clubs and organisations to bring them together on one website and create a more regularly updated and comprehensive facility than can currently be maintained by individual Clubs. The site includes an Austin Seven Wiki which will allow Members to contribute knowledge and experience to a central database of technical information and forums to exchange views and opinions.
Membership of the OA7C is free to contributing, active Members and £10 per year for all others.
If you wish to join and gain access to the parts of the site for Members only please go to the Membership page.
