Maroochy Vehicle Owners Club drive motoring interest
A RELATIVELY new Sunshine Coast car club is driving interest in motoring heritage.
The Maroochy Vehicle Owners Club was established in 2017 to provide a friendly, socially inclusive environment for anyone interested in using and preserving our motoring and machinery history.
Members come from as far south as Beerwah and Peachester and north to Cooroy and enjoy getting out in their historic cars to roam all over the Sunshine Coast, enjoying the scenery and good friendship.
The club is keen to welcome new members and looks forward to making new friendships. Members generally organise a car run on the second weekend of the month (Saturday or Sunday) and the 4th Wednesday of the month.
A recent rally at Yandina saw members head to the RACQ LifeFlight hangar at Sunshine Coast Airport.
As a very social group, members also embark on occasional caravan rallies to interesting destinations, perhaps to view historic collections, for those who have a van or camper or can stay in nearby motels or cabins overnight.
"It's good fun and good friendship and it is amazing what you see and learn about our motoring and machinery history when you are out and about,” a club spokesperson said.
Meetings are minimal but a general meeting is held every two months.
