The Alliance of
Morris Owners (IAMO) was formed to provide a focal point
for anyone interested in Morris Motors. The interest can

or the people who worked there.
Although most of
the members are likely to be owners of their cars IAMO
is limited only by the interests of its members as there
are no cut off points in terms of age or product. The
IAMO should therefore be of interest to owners of cars
of any age from 1913 to 1983, commercial vehicles, industrial
and marine engines, and even aeroplanes that were manufactured
at Cowley during World War II.

in the Alliance's activities.
