Club activities are subject to COVID19 restrictions. See the Events Program.

Our Club comprises a group of Automotive enthusiasts, sharing memories, ideas and fellowship while indulging their appreciation of fine automobiles from throughout history. We are based at Maleny, in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland of south east Qld. The Clubhouse is situated in Bryce Lane in the precinct of the Maleny Historical Society, on the northern approaches to Maleny. Currently, the Club has 151 members, with 259 vehicles on the Club pre 1991 Register, representing 65 marques. The range is impressive, typified by veteran replicas, vintage American tourers and roadsters, pre WW2 classics, British and European marques of the 1950's to 80's, and Australian icons.

Many Club vehicles are operated under the "Special Interest" registration scheme for affordable registration of cars used for historic and automobile club purposes. This limits their use to Club organised excursions and regulates safe operation on public roads. It is with a great degree of satisfaction that Members restore and preserve these special cars, rather than the alternative of such history being scrapped.

The Club was established in December 1992, and membership and enthusiasm is stronger than ever. Members engage in a busy annual social calender, vehicle displays, and regular excursions to venues within a 150 km radius of Maleny. Wednesday and Sunday mornings are assigned to a social gathering at the Clubhouse, and a general meeting is held monthly.

The Club has an extensive Library of motoring topics, and the Club 'shop' stocks clothing and memorabilia. The clubhouse is currently being upgraded, and extensions will provide a larger recreational area.
