The Mustang Club of Maryland (MCOM) was formed in Harford County, Maryland, in July 1978. Bob Bullis and Jim Mundis, two Ford Mustang enthusiasts, placed an ad in The Aegis (a local Harford County newspaper), in search of other Mustang owners who were interested in forming a Mustang club. The initial ad drew 16 new members. By August of 1979, the membership had grown to 62 members.
In October 1978, the club received a Regional Group Charter from the Mustang Club of America (MCA), certifying the club as the Mustang Regional Group, which later became known as the Mustang Club of Maryland.
The Mustang Club of Maryland Today
Since being chartered, the club has membership of approximately 300 members from all over the State of Maryland. Today more than ever, the club is enjoying its greatest success as the popularity of the Ford Mustang is at an all-time high. MCOM has created a venue for Mustang enthusiasts to join like-minded individuals and share the joy of owning, customizing, and preserving the mystique of the Ford Mustang.
The current officers of the club are:
President – James Heller
Vice Presidents – Karla Brewer, Scott Coudoux
Secretary – Tayla Lindenberg
Treasurer – Heather Heller
The club also includes a number of Committee Chairpersons who organize and run the various events and activities we offer our members. The club has been very active in participating in social events, cruises, parades, and car shows throughout the State. A portion of the proceeds from our events benefits charities in Maryland.
From the very beginning, our club has been dedicated to fundraising and giving back to the communities in which we live. Each year, the club members vote to identify 3 local charities (who, in addition to Toys for Tots, will be the recipients of our annual charitable giving campaign)- one focused on meeting the needs of servicemen and women and their families, one animal rescue organization, and one serving children with disabilities/chronic health conditions.
The club holds monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month. Monthly meeting locations rotate to different locations in the Central Maryland region, in an effort to make the meetings accessible and convenient to as many club members as possible.
The club has very active social media outlets, including Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, where our members are able to connect and discuss a multitude of Mustang topics- repairs, detailing, sales, etc. We’re happy you’ve found us and hope you will join the conversation.
