An active Model A Ford club located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
2020 -- A new year of member activities
With our Model A's stored for the winter we have to do some traveling to sunnier locations to find some. In January, Bob & Rose attended Dillinger Days in Tucson Az to see a nice display. Bob's "A" is somewhere in the area.
Actual machine guns used by John Dillinger.
While most of our cars are put away, you can usually count on Dick to bring something to a meeting. Here is a shot of his "T" at the February Pasty Club meeting in Marquette. It may be better in snow than the A's but, really, I think the chains made the difference. Appropriate clothing is a must as well.
A Florence Arizona show in February. Big show but lots of attention for the lady and the lone Model A. Purchased by her husband in Minnesota in 1962 . Even some of the cars get out of the snow. He has passed on but she's still driving.
Quite a few members showed up for the February meeting at the Cliff's Shaft Museum but only one was driving his Model A. Not only was John W. the first one with his car out again, he drove 200+ miles round trip in this weather to do it. Notice - no chains needed.
A good visit was had by all members.
A good turnout of members and cars for our June meeting. The first get together of spring/summer in 2020.
Look out for poles that jump into your blind spot when leaving.
A nice lineup of cars for the meeting on a beautiful July day. It looks like nobody took charge of arranging the parking, but I suspect some people wanted to have the view in front of them when they drove off.
Trying to keep our social distance in the open air. Great turnout.
I think Greg may have been trying to liven up the meeting with something else you may have found in the Model A era.
Rick on "pole duty" as everyone drove off. A safe departure.
A stop for pizza on the way home for some of the long distance travelers.
Another good meeting in August. We had everybody pointing out this time.
Not to many Model A's, but an excellent turnout of cars for a parade past the Jacobetti Veteran's Facility in September. The few organized events for the year were mainly parades to keep up with social distancing. The "recipients" of the parades seemed to appreciate and enjoy them since visiting was extremely restricted.
A little smaller group for a rainy outdoor meeting in September.
Two model A's braved the snowy roads. We were betting on John showing up with a third but he couldn't make it for some reason. Im sure it wasn't the weather since he's never been stopped by any driving conditions before.
The smallest turnout of the year to a cold final meeting for 2020 . Hopefully 2021 will bring an opportunity for more club activity.
