The Aston Martin Feltham Club was founded in 2010 by Barrie Robinson because as a long time British classic car amateur restorer he could not find a Club that focussed on the Feltham-built Aston Martins. Since then the membership has grown to over 150 members worldwide. The newsletter which “occasionally comes out” has pinpointed some safety issues with some models as well as providing valuable information on restoration.
Using factories in South Africa, Canada, China and the UK the Club manufacturers parts that are no longer available in the market. Sometimes parts are made to higher specifications or an improved design without deviating from visual originality.
The Club keeps an eye on the market and publishes auction results on its website at www.AMFClub.com.
Membership is free and the Club relies on donations as well as some advertising on the website. There are no dues but donations are most appreciated as there are Club expenses. There are no meetings, no club events, no rules except the normal social ones, no obligations but there is the occasional newsletter. There is no forum, no adjudicator nor moderator – just interchanges using member’s email addresses. Membership includes owners from Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Hawaii, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, UAE, UK, and USA.
The Club also has started to list members cars for sale. To join one has to own a Feltham Aston Martin but there is an honorary membership for past owners. Enquiries to the Club can be made through the website.
