Sunbeam Tigers Owners Club (SOCQ)

The Sunbeam Owners' Club of Queensland (SOCQ) was formed in June 1982. The club resulted from a chance meeting between Neil Scope and Nick Newbury who decided to find out just how many Sunbeams were still out there.

From an initial membership of 26, numbers have hovered around the 50 mark throughout the nineties.

We produce a monthly newsletter, Sunstate Newsbeams, and hold monthly events. Our events are of a social nature including picnics, navigation runs, gymkhanas and our annual show and shine. We also support various classic car events organized by other clubs and are annual participants in the National Sunbeam Meeting.

The National Sunbeam Meeting is held each year on the weekend of the east coast Queens' Birthday holiday (June). The SOCQ, Sunbeam Owners' Club NSW, Sunbeam Car Club of Victoria and Sunbeam Car Owners' Club of South Australia take turns at organizing this event. International visitors are most welcome.

Cars currently on our register represent most post-war types, from the Sunbeam-Talbot 10 and 2 litre through to the Talbot Sunbeam Lotus. Pre-war Sunbeams are most welcome too. AND, we have A Tiger!
