One of the best things about owning a Ford Mustang is being a part of the incredibly supportive and active Mustang communities around the world. If you currently own a Mustang or you're thinking about owning a Mustang, one of the first things you should do is join one of your local Mustang clubs.

If you're curious about how to find local Mustang clubs near you, this article will provide resources that you can research on your own.
Mustang Clubs On Facebook
Part of the allure of social media is that it makes finding other people that have similar interests to you super easy and one of the best methods to connect with other Mustang owners is by utilizing social media giant Facebook. To accomplish this, you’ll want to take a look specifically at the Facebook Groups section of either your Facebook smartphone app or your web browser.
Facebook Mustang Groups (Clubs) are broken down by everything from geographic location to specific years and models of Mustang. Mustang Clubs on Facebook are well run, well-organized, and include tons of fun stuff like:
- Notifications of local events
- Maintenance tips
- Articles and Newsletters
- Parts for sale
There is no cost to join Facebook, which is always a plus. To keep a lid on spammers and those who are trying to sell products, most Mustang clubs are private and require the approval of a club principal or other moderator before posting on their feed or connecting with other members. A pro tip: joining several Mustang groups is not only allowed but thoroughly encouraged!
Mustang Clubs On Reddit
Reddit is a unique tool amongst social media platforms because it is specifically broken up by interests. These interests are categorized into groups called Subreddits and whether you have interests in Mustangs or BMWs or other types of automobiles, you'll find a subreddit for you. Among the subreddits, you'll find additional subreddits that are run by people that are principals of local, Mustang clubs and other online only Mustang clubs as well.
Much like Facebook, Reddit is a community of people that share a common interest or live in a certain geographical area and Reddit makes it quite easy to find and keep up on what's going on with not only your local Mustang Club but also the automotive world in general.
Reddit is free to join and as with Facebook, joining several Mustang clubs is encouraged!
