The Alliance of Morris
Owners (IAMO) was formed to provide a focal point for anyone
interested in Morris Motors. The interest can be in one of their
products, the history of the factory or the people who worked
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.
The communications will
be mainly web based so that IAMO will be truly international
and freely available to anyone. Membership is free in every
sense although members are expected to contribute by participating
in the Alliance's activities.
we are not
IAMO is not a club but
as its name suggests an alliance of individuals, groups, clubs,
suppliers and museums brought together with a common aim - their
interest in all things Morris.
The structure of IAMO
is unlike a club in that it does not have a management structure
or even a committee. The alliance is run entirely by the members
for the members.
There is no restriction
on membership and all of the facilities will be available to
anyone whether they are members or not.
Although dedicated to
Morris we will not exclude other manufacturers and we will welcome
other fellow enthusiasts whatever their marque.
What are our aims?
The primary aim of the
International Alliance of Morris Owners is to preserve the history
of Morris Motors by encouraging the appreciation of both its
products and its history.
We believe that the best
way of doing this is to encourage the public display of its
products together with an appreciation of their history.
