About The Club
A PLACE FOR ALL FORD ENTHUSIASTS
The Ford Owners Car Club of South Australia is one of the largest Ford clubs in the state. It was founded over 40 years ago to cater for the needs of all Ford enthusiasts.
We have many people in the club, who love their Ford vehicles and enjoy the social aspect of meeting old friends and making new ones. Our members are of all ages, single and families with Fords of all shapes and sizes from around the world.
The club organises a variety of social events every month during the year to encourage members to bring out their vehicles. This includes member cruises, coffee mornings and participation in other classic car events such as the All Ford Day and the Bay to Birdwood.

Where: Meet at the Frewville Shopping Centre on Glen Osmond Road for a 9:30am departure.The Shopping Centre is on the left hand side of Glen Osmond Road just after you turn off Greenhill Road.
We then travel up Glen Osmond Road onto the Freeway.
Turn off at the Stirling exit and travel on to Mylor. Stay on the Strathalbyn Road and travel on to Echunga.
We Stop at Echunga for a short break (toilet behind the Post Office and coffee at the general store) if needed and to allow people to catch up.
Then on to Macclesfield and Strathalbyn.
When we arrive in Strathalbyn we drive along High Street (this is the street with all the antique shops) until we arrive at the Gilbert’s Motor Museum, 34 High Street.
The Museum is open from 9:00am to 3:00pm on Sundays and provide off street packing for museum visitors. I have been in contact with Graham Simpson who is keen to make us welcome and show us the museum displays.
After viewing the museum a buffet lunch has been arranged at the hotel opposite the museum. The cost of the lunch and museum entry will be covered by the Club as part of it's 50th Anniversary Celebrations.
When lunch is completed please re-assemble at the museum for a short drive to Collectible Classic Cars 5 to 7 Rankine Street. We can then look over the current inventory of Classics on display.
After members can look over some of the antique shops in High Street and make their way back home.
I realize this is a full day of activities however the locals have been very welcoming and I’m sure you will enjoy your visit.
