BATANS is a non-profit organization registered in Nova Scotia, Canada, whose mandate is to promote the enjoyment and preservation of British automobiles, and encourage fellowship amongst the owners and admirers.
Below are the current representatives for BATANS.
The Origins of B.A.T.A.N.S.
It all started back in 1983 when three British car enthusiasts met by accident (not literally), in Wolfville on an October Sunday afternoon and it took-off from there, attracting like-minded enthusiasts over the years to the point we now have 200+ members from B.C. to Newfoundland, the U.S.A. and even members in the U.K.

BATANS Mailing Lists
Another benefit of being a BATANS member is that you may subscribe to the BATANS "Members2" and/or "Anythingoes" chat lists. The purpose of the MEMBERS2 chat list is to provide an informal forum for discussing just about anything related to restoring or maintaining your British car with fellow BATANS members, as well as ongoing BATANS activities. The ANYTHINGOES chat list is for anything else that you wish to discuss with other members.
Club members may subscribe to "Members2" chat list by visiting:
We also have a separate chat list for "off-topic" (i.e. non-British car) messages and you can also subscribe to that list by visiting:
Fill in the information in the appropriate places and you will receive an automated Confirmation Message to which you must reply and you will receive an approval welcome message. It's that simple.
Un-Subscribing and E-Mail Address ChangesThis is easily done by visiting the same website as subscribing and scrolling towards the bottom of the page where you can un-subscribe or change your e-mail address.
Please note: e-mail and chat are not considered secure technologies. Please keep this in mind during any discussions etc.
