Early Falcon Car Club of Queensland

Welcome!

Welcome to the home page of the Early Falcon Car Club of Queensland Inc. The club was founded in 1986 in the car park at JC Slaughter falls, Mt Coo-tha and was an annual event on the clubs calendar until parking became an issue. Since then, the club has grown to 90+ members driving a range of vehicles. Membership to the club is open to anyone and typically attracts people who own or have an interest in early model Ford Falcons.

Club meetings are held on the last Tuesday of every month, starting at 7.00pm.
The venue for the club meetings is the Lord Stanley Hotel, 994 Stanley St East, East Brisbane, where members and those interested in joining the club meet from 6.00pm for dinner with the meeting following.

  • Distinguished Gentleman's Drive Brisbane 2024

    Tuesday, May 28, 2024 by Jon Clayton
    "The Distinguished Gentleman's Drive" is an annual gathering that brings together classic car owners dressed in dapper attire to raise funds and awareness for men's health causes. With its unique blend of elegance, philanthropy, and automotive heritage, the event has garnered significant attention and made a lasting impact in our community.
    I am proud to share that the Brisbane edition of "The Distinguished Gentleman's Drive" has proven itself as the largest event and highest fundraiser among 200 cities worldwide. In just three years since its inception, we have raised over $640,000 directly supporting organizations and initiatives focused on improving men's health. Brisbane has made an outstanding effort each year being the highest fundraiser for 2 of the 3 years it’s been running so far and raising over $86,000.
    This year's drive is scheduled to take place on Sunday, September 29, and promises to be an unforgettable experience. Participants will embark on a scenic route throughout Brisbane, showcasing a stunning array of classic cars. It is an opportunity to celebrate automotive heritage while addressing crucial health issues affecting men in our community.
    We believe that dapper attire is an essential part of "The Distinguished Gentleman's Drive" experience, as it adds a touch of elegance and vintage charm to the event. We encourage all participants to embrace the dapper aesthetic, donning their finest suits, ties, dresses, and accessories. It truly enhances the ambiance and creates a fun sense of camaraderie among fellow enthusiasts.
    I kindly request your car club's presence at "The Distinguished Gentleman's Drive" in Brisbane. Together, we can create a memorable and impactful experience while fostering friendships within the automotive community. Your support will help amplify the event's reach and inspire others to get involved.


    Members please RSVP on the events page.
