MOCA has an active and imaginative Regalia Secretary, who maintains a large range of regalia such as shirts, jackets, caps, drinking glasses, chairs, books and many other items that are of interest to the marque that are available for all members and their friends. In addition, the Club’s Registrar maintains a comprehensive history of all Morgans known in Australia and can assist with any detailed knowledge required for your particular model.
MOCA exists only for its members, and like all things, you can only get out of the Club what you are prepared to put in. An important difference between MOCA and other car clubs is that we welcome non Morgan owners, provided that they share an interest in the marque and enjoy the unique personality of the "true" Morgan owner.
The morale within the Club has always been high and the support of the members strong. An indication of the Club’s strength is that there are still two foundation members that are active within the Club and many current members have been in the Club for over 30 years.
As Peter Morgan once said, "perhaps the Morgan is not so much an anachronism as some might believe."
The Club meets on the first Thursday of each month (except January) at the The Willandra Room, Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club, 117 Ryedale Road, West Ryde 2114, Sydney, NSW. Members and guests usually meet from about 6 p.m. for dinner and a chat and meetings commence at about 7.30 p.m. Visitors are most welcome.
The Morgan Owners’ Club of Australia (MOCA) was founded on the 3rd of July, 1958 by a small group of Morgan enthusiasts at the instigation of Ken Ward (pictured below). MOCA was founded to promote and foster the mutual interest of Morgan car owners and enthusiasts throughout Australia and to provide a centre of technical information about the Morgan motor car.
MOCA promotes meetings of both a social and competitive nature for its members, with an average total of 30 club events being held each year. Social events include monthly meetings of the Club, car tours, of which the early morning "dawn dash" is a favourite, static car displays, BBQs and dinners, camping weekends, "Christmas in July" weekends and even the odd tour of the vineyards has been arranged.
The Club produces an award winning magazine called "The Morgan Ear", which is sent out to members free each month and enables distant Morganeers to keep in touch with Club activities.
On the competitive scene, MOCA is affiliated with the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) and is a foundation member of the Combined Sports Car Association (CSCA) which promotes speed events such as hillclimbs, lap dashes and sprints through its seven member clubs, mostly similar British sports cars. As a part of its membership with the CSCA, MOCA hosts a round of the championship each year and the Club is famous (and justly proud) for its ability to run the entire event without the need of any outside assistance. Members assist with scrutineering, flag marshals, time keeping and the myriad of organising that is required to run a speed event with over 100 competitors.
