Queensland Club History
A Short History of the Mustang Owners Club of Australia Queensland Branch
MOCA Queensland was formed in 1980 by a group of people with a common interest in the Ford Mustang. They joined together to share knowledge and to increase their ability to locate hard to find parts.
Today, the Club has around 250 members throughout Queensland, and is amalgamated with Mustang Owners' Clubs in other states. It also liaises with other clubs in the United States and around the world. Members' cars range from original to modified and from 'daily drivers' to concours restorations.
Meetings are held each month in Brisbane and guest speakers are invited to attend from time to time. Club runs are held each month and include a variety of events around Brisbane, the Gold Coast, the Sunshine Coast and west to Toowoomba. Weekend cruises are arranged at various times in the year.
Queensland registration rules allow Left Hand Drive Mustangs older than 30 years to be registered for normal road use. Concessional registration is available to Mustangs over 30 years old under the Queensland Transport's Special Interest Vehicle Scheme which enables limited use of vehicles, both LHD and RHD, for Club and historic car usage on designated Club events such as the monthly Club runs and events run both other affiliated car clubs (Click here to download Qld Dept of Transport SIVS Rules).
Queensland laws and those of most Australian States do not permit use of newer left hand drive vehicles on the road. They must be converted to right hand drive.
A Mustang Owners Club of Australia National Concours, hosted by one of the State Mustang Clubs, is held at Easter each year. The Queensland Club also conducts a State Concours and Display Day each year, except for the year that Queensland hosts the National Concours.
The aim of the club today is to encourage fellowship among Mustang owners, to give encouragement and incentive to keep their vehicles in top condition.
The club is open only to owners of Ford Mustangs and unfortunately cannot offer associate membership.
Annual membership fee is $60.00 (subject to change) and there is a once off joining fee of $25 making a total of $85.00 for the first year of membership
