The GTM marque was launched in 1967 when Cheshire garage owner Bernard Cox and friend Jack Hosker created the Cox GTM (Grand Touring Mini). The Cox GTM design composed of two Mini front subframes linked by a sheet steel semi-monocoque chassis. The chassis’ deep centre tunnel backbone was supplemented by two generous sills.
The car was mid-engined: the rear subframe contained the engine as in a Mini with the steering arms locked in position with adjustable rods and ball joints. The front subframe carried the steering rack, fuel tank and radiator. Suspension, brakes and 10 inch wheels remained as per the Mini. The fibreglass bodywork contained more than a hint of Ferrari Dino in its styling.
The Jago Owners Club was founded in 1984 by Tony Crockford, it’s aims were to provide support to fellow builders of the various Jago kits then being marketed and encourage owners & enthusiasts to get together at various major kit car events and club specific activities & enjoy what they had created.
Over 25 years later and the core aim of the Club hasn’t altered, although nowadays the emphasis is more on the use, preservation, renovation and modification of those kits, however there are still one or two unfinished ones gathering dust here and there!
Just as in those early days one of the main benefits of club membership is access to a wealth of knowledge from those who have seen it done it been there and have the scars to prove it, backed up by a website & discussion forum covering many FAQ’s relating to the kits.
Benefit from a wealth of knowledge – from those who have seen it and done it! Plus: Website, Forums, Newsletters & Meets!
If you have an interest in Jagos, are rebuilding one, or used to own one, join & benefit from one of the most enthusiastic clubs around today!

The idea of an owners club for NGs was born at the National Kit Car Rally at Donnington in June1981. At the show there were six TAs one of which won the ‘Alternative Car Trophy’. The TAs turned in quicker times in the driving tests than the Marcos’… even the 3 litre ones!. Among those present were Ian Peacock, Tony Redington and Peter Nicholson. As there were only six members the monthly newsletter was manually typed using carbon paper by Liz Peacock. The first newsletter was a single side of A4 with a brief report of the Donington Rally and information about a pub get together in July.
Quantum Owners Club (QOC) is a club for people who own or have an interest in Quantum Cars, which are a type of Kit car produced by Quantum Sports Cars. The club was formed in early 1990 by Peter Crawford, who having build a white Series One Coupé, decided to form an Owners Club for people who were interested in Quantum Sports Cars. The first official gathering of the club was at the Newark Kit Car show in the same year, when a number of members got together for the first time.
SKCC is an independent kit car club, a virtual and real meeting place for those with an affinity to ‘Kits’, the club’s slogan “Fun isn’t a straight line” holds true whether Building, Dreaming or Driving: Living with these cars is an adventure, from making decisions around the build / ownership and converting ideas into reality, to taking your car to places you would only have dreamed about and making new friends along the way.
SKCC members talk about ‘Smiles per miles’, owning and driving a ‘Kit’ is all about the journey and the fun that can be had along the way. The photo gallery or the ‘Reports’ section will give a hint at the adventures that we’ve enjoyed.
