South Australian Branch

Branch Activities

Bi-Monthly Meetings

The South Australian branch holds informal meetings on the first Friday of every second month at 7.30pm.  These are held in at the Shannon’s Insurance Office Club Room, 863-865 South Road, Clarence Gardens SA 5039. Some members get together before the meeting at a hotel close by and enjoy an inexpensive meal. Contact us on or call 08 83708115 for more details. The format of the meeting is very relaxed and our focus is on sharing technical information especially restoration and maintenance tips.


We regularly have discussions on various relevant technical issues to assist AS owners.  Recently these have included the following topics: Body Mounts on AS cars; Paint and Panel restoration; 18hp Water Pumps; Ignition systems, Carburetors and “Getting you Home” tips if you are stranded on the side of the road!  The National ASCC Spares has a “get you home box” available to members which includes parts which may be of use in those unfortunate circumstances (check out the National Club page for more details).  The latter discussion covered the use of items in this box and offered additional suggestions.  

Outings and Events
Outings are held regularly throughout the year and take a variety of forms including drives, weekends away, lunches, garage crawls, swap meets, historic race meetings and museum visits. If you would like more information on our events call 08 83708115 or email us.

Centenary Rally – Canberra

March 29th – April 1st 2019

As you can see below, a National Rally, involving members from all states in Australia (and keen overseas members) is held annually and the next one is a very significant event in the life of our Marque. It is 100 years since Armstrong Siddeley vehicles began to be produced and this will be celebrated at the Centenary Rally. This will be held in Canberra and we are hoping we will have a wide range of models on display.  Contact Ian Handley for more information.  Regular updates on what is on offer during this Rally will be available for members in the Southern Sphinx magazine and on the national webpage.
