History

The Cortina Mark One Owners Club (CMOOC) is a family friendly organisation which was formed as the result of a few interested owners getting together after a meeting was advertised on a community radio show in 1993. From the humble beginnings of that roadside meeting we have grown into an organisation with around one hundred members. The Club had several more outings in 1993 and its inaugural meeting was held on the 13th February 1994 at the “Picnic at Hanging Rock” car show. A committee was elected, the first “Cort One” magazine was published in February and in September the club was incorporated under the Office of Fair Trading and Business Affairs.

Since the Clubs establishment the membership has expanded to include, not just Mark one, but also Mk2, TC, TD, TE and TF Cortina’s as well.

Aims

CMOOC seeks to promote the preservation, development and regular use of Cortina’s and derivative vehicles through the free interchange of information, ideas, expertise, and occasional trading of spare parts.

Club Activities

The Club holds regular activities centred on the use of our vehicles, including social rallies, treasure hunts, group displays and technical evenings. We are regular attendees at motor sport events such as hill climbs and historic racing. As a member of CMOOC you will receive a membership card, a newsletter every second month, discount at various automotive retailers, discounts on comprehensive motor vehicle insurance and the camaraderie of your fellow members.

Membership Eligibility

Persons of all ages who own, or are interested in Cortina’s may join. You don’t even have to own a car. More details on the membership page.
