Default International Model A Ford Day

Happy International Model A Ford Day!!

We went for short drive along the coast of Southern California. You can see some of the smoke from California's wild fires in the background.

Hi Guys,
A friend and I did our bit for the ‘International Model A Ford Day’ drive in Mossel Bay on the south coast of South Africa.

The RockFord A's did a picnic in the Pecatonica, Illinois village park today. Sunny and low 60's. We ate outside on lawn chairs at a distance from each other. After lunch we did a few car games, like seeing who could stop the closest to a large flat washer on the park road with a plumb bob hanging from the front bumper. About a dozen Model A's showed up. Sorry I didn't think to bring our camera.

In honor of Model A Day, I went for a nice drive this evening in my Tudor. Earlier I checked the valve clearance and Installed a Model B carb on my 30 Huckster. Will road test it tomorrow. Also painted my new 6:1 Snyder head so I can install it and assembled a Zenith 2 carb I was rebuilding.

The Cape Cod Chapter decided to honor the occasion to tour four interesting locations here in the central area of the Cape. We visited historic sites in South Yarmouth; do a photo op at the very first traffic circle (rotary) known in the USA. We then travelled to the beautiful Barnstable Harbor and a tour of the historic Coast Guard Museum. The tour ended with a picnic lunch at Gray's Beach facility at Yarmouthport on the north side. Seven members and their model "A" Fords enjoyed a beautiful day. The well designed jacket patch that signified the day, worldwide, was given to each participant. We are already planning this event next year.

The George Washington Chapter took a short tour that consisted of eight Model A's. We toured some scenic and historic areas of Montgomery County, MD. The weather could not have been better. Our two hour tour took four hours for a variety of reasons, but no one seemed to mind very much.

Haha, Works for me!

Yes, The OC Pancake Breakfast was dearly missed. I just re-watched the youtube video the other day to reminisce.

Good to see some of us were able to participate in International Model A Ford Day.

I wrestled with fitting repro front quarter panels on my RPU. Not as much fun as a picnic.

We did a small tour today.
A train station in Sackville, NB and a 1907 covered bridge.
Great day!
