Founded in 1979, two years after production ceased, the Stag Owners Club (SOC), was formed to “Ensure the continued existence of, and increase the interest in, the Triumph Stag”. It’s safe to say that it has and continues to fulfil this objective admirably.
A total of 25,939 cars were manufactured over its seven year production cycle and of these 17,819 were destined for the UK market. Today nearly 8,300 UK cars are still registered with the DVLA giving it a remarkably high survival rate of in excess of 46%.
Today the SOC is the largest single car model club with active membership of more than 5,000, each member enjoying benefits such as a monthly colour magazine, participation in an active and thriving club social scene, (more than forty areas in the UK alone), access to a recommended car insurance scheme which includes free breakdown recovery and European cover, plus there’s SOCTFL where each member becomes a shareholder of a limited company dedicated to the remanufacture of spares tooling with the result that there are very few replacement parts for the car that cannot be obtained new.
In addition to the above there’s the world class Stag Owners Club website and Forum which gives members unprecedented access to technical forums and the Triumph Stag archives which cover every aspect of the car with on-line manuals and sales brochures etc.
