The Club is a not-for-profit limited liability company and exists to advance interest in the history, restoration, care and preservation of motor vehicles.  The Club assists the community through financial donations and attendance at relevant functions.


In 1963 Nambour citizens Ian Hayne and David Sharpe conceived the idea of a local antique car club for the purposes of the restoration and preservation of ‘old faithfuls’ of by-gone days.  A meeting was held on 19 February 1963 at Bert Skinner’s Garage and the “Antique Car Club of Nambour” was born.

Restoration was the main interest to members.  In April 1964 Mick Hayes’ 1912 Buick became the Club’s first car to be fully restored.   The first public appearance in Nambour for the Club’s cars was in taking part in the Warana Festival procession on 26 September 1964. The first Club rally was to Alexandra Headland on 3 September 1964.  The Club was subsequently renamed the Sunshine Coast Antique Car Club.


The Club has a dedicated Clubhouse within the Nambour showgrounds.  It is located next to the Nambour Badminton Club building.  To find the clubhouse, enter the showgrounds via the main entrance off Coronation Ave, turn left immediately inside the main gate then turn immediately left again and drive up the incline to the Clubhouse. The Clubhouse is the departure point for most Club rallies.  The Clubhouse also houses an extensive paper library of mechanical publications, automobile magazines and related paraphernalia.   


General meetings are held at the Clubhouse monthly on the fourth Tuesday of each month excluding December. 

  • Meetings commence at 7.30pm. 
  • A video screening commencing between 6.30pm and 7.00pm usually precedes the meeting. 
  • Visitors are welcome.
  • The Annual General Meeting is held on the 4th Tuesday in November immediately following the general meeting. 
  • Committee meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month including December.  Visitors are by invitation.
