Our club was founded with a very precise aim : trying to keep in perfect working order, whether by restoration or by renovation, the cars of the late “ROOTES” empire (HILLMAN, HUMBER, SINGER, SUNBEAM TALBOT) built between 1935 and 1981.
Why not join our club yourselves, IF YOU ARE THE PROUD OWNER OF ONE OF THESE MAGNIFICENT ROOTES CREATIONS? Or perhaps if you know somebody who owns such a car, give him or her this leaflet; in this way you are doing us and them a great pleasure!
Reunions with club members in winter at a pub, rallies with the cars, presence at the major Belgian indoor Auto-jumbles, and of course we organize every year ( already more than 35 years) “ the” coach trip to BEAULIEU (GB) , the oldest ( and still the best) of the European auto-jumbles if you are looking for British car parts. Ladies are of course most welcome at all these gatherings! So , we try to organise every month an outing, except during the summer holidays.
We also publish a few times a year a bulletin “ROOTES-NEWS”, containing old road tests, comments about our outings, invitations for the next meeting and of course the headings “for sale” and “wish to buy”.
J-P VANVINCKENROYE, President
We hopefully and gladly will welcome you in a very near future, in our great Rootes family! We NEED YOU, as you will understand; but you also will some day need us, in order to keep your splendid ROOTES product on the road.
