ABOUT MCOC:

Joe Rementer and Steve Motola have started Orange County's first Mustang club. The two Mustang enthusiast's were tired of leaving the county and even the state to be part of a Mustang club and decided to form the Mustang Club of Orange County, New York. The club is operated out of Middletown, New York. "We felt Middletown, would be a central location for all county residents to travel to for monthly meetings", said Motola. Anyone interested in joining the Club can go to our registration page and print out our registration form.

These two men have been working all the area shows to spread the word. There has been a large response to the recently formed club. "Many of the Mustang enthusiast's we've met wanted to join the club on the spot."

The Mustang Club of Orange County, New York is a club complete with Officers, Board of Directors, Committee Heads and is an affiliate of the Mustang Club of America (www.mustang.org).

If you own a Mustang or are thinking of buying one and have been looking for a local Mustang club here is your chance to get involved with one right in your own backyard.

"Owning a Mustang is not required, but, the love for the American Icon is." -
Joe Rementer
