The Mustang Owners Club of Southeastern Michigan, formed in November
1975, is a group of individuals who find the Ford Mustang one of the
most stylish and attractive domestic sports cars available. Whether it
be the 1964 1/2 Trendsetters, '69 through '71 Bosses, the Mustang II
circa 1974, the '79 pace setters, the '83s which sparked the rebirth of
America's love affair with the convertible, the '85-'90 aerodynamic
speed machines, or the '99 GT, we love them all!
Most of the club members own one or more Mustangs in varying body
styles and model years. Club members exchange information, provide
sources for parts, literature, and hints on maintaining their Mustangs.
Ownership of a Mustang is not a requirement for membership. Club members
come from varying backgrounds, but all share a great appreciation for
the Ford Mustang. The general membership meetings are held on the second
Tuesday of each month. A monthly newsletter, The Accelerator,
which reports on club activities and articles on the Mustang is
published for all members. Activities sponsored by the club have
included car shows, picnics, sporting events, cruise
nights, and technical sessions covering various aspects of the Mustang.
Each year MOCSEM hosts the
Mustang Memories car show held in August in Dearborn.
Proceeds from this and other activities throughout the year enable MOCSEM to
donate thousands of dollars to various local and national charities.
General membership meetings are normally held the second Tuesday of each
month from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. Please see our calendar for location and other details. Meetings include board reports, club business, club event info, guest
speakers, 50/50 drawing and raffle, and club merchandise sale. The meetings are open to the
public and are a great chance to learn more about the club, meet the
members, and maybe become a member yourself.
The Mustang Owners Club was formed locally in the summer of 1975 by
James Egyed, at which time he collected the names of those interested in
the fledgling group.
