Olivia Oliver   The Rumble seat Queen
The 2016 Spring Tour came to Iron Mountain Saturday. My Granddaughter Olivia Oliver tagged along to see the cars. On the way to meet up with the group she asked if she could sit in one of the cars. She got more than her wish. Bob and Rose said she could ride with them in their two door sedan to the next stop. When I got out to the parking lot Olivia was nestled into the rumble seat of Floyd's coupe with a huge smile on her face. Rose dubbed her the Rumble Seat Queen.  On the trip over to the restaurant she again rode in the rumble seat Finally she rode with Bob and Rose to the museums. Her Grandmother asked if she would like to go shopping with her, but said  she would rather stay with the model A's. I think her next step will be taking the Lady Drivers Course. Well, maybe a few years down the road

Have you ever considered where our hobby is headed? Look around at the next meeting. What would you say is the average age of your group?  Where are the younger people? It’s time to get the youth involved! When you are working on your car do the Grandkids want to help? How about the neighborhood kids? Get them more involved by signing them up for “A World”, a publication designed for the 1st through 12th grade Model A’ers. The last issue was twelve pages of reading, activities, and games. Everything they need to learn more about the hobby we all enjoy. After reading it, I realized it’s not only the kids that can learn from it. It is published four times a year. Go to the Model A Ford Club of America ( ) website. Click on the youth tab and follow the directions. It’s time to actively get the younger people involved in our great hobby. Sign them up today and keep our hobby’s future alive.

In order to promote the youth movement, this youth page will become a permanent part of our website. Tell the grandkids, neighborhood kids and even us older kids about it.

     I would like to introduce you to Kyle Swiedals. Kyle is the Superior A's contribution to the youth movement. He is thirteen years old and has been with us on the Model A trail since 2008. He learned to drive his Dads Model A pick up in the fields around his house. He has participated in tours to Iron River, Cliff's Cottage, Fayette, Iron Mountain, Ontanagon,  Escanaba, and the Presque Isle Ice Cream Run. The 2013 Fall tour to  the Apostle Islands eluded him as school got in the way.

    You may have seen him at one of the many Wilson Farm Pancake Breakfasts. Starting in 2008 he has attended the Progressive dinner, 2009 -2012 Christmas parties, and in 2013 the First Annual Superior A's Banquet. 

    In June of 2013 he could be found at the Registration Table or volunteering for other duties at the Model A Ford Club of America's 27th National Convention.

    Kyle is an avid reader, enjoys video games and is active in the Boy Scouts of America. Parents Rod and Sandy, along with Grandparents Joe and Kathleen Swiedals are steering Kyle along the road to a bright future with many great memories.

Of course as you can see it's a 1929-30-31 A and AA. It has a 3 speed and a 4 speed tranny back to back.
