The club was founded in 2008 to serve the interests of people who owned Model A Fords. Since the typical driving speed of the Model A is 40 MPH, it was hard to keep up with the larger or newer cars in the local antique clubs when they went on tour. The club was formed in 2008 (April 2008), and soon will be a Florida Chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America (MAFCA) and the Model A Restorers Club (MARC). We saluted the 81th Anniversary in 2010, of the introduction of the Ford Model A, on July 26, 1928.
The primary theme of this club is to encourage and help people to repair and restore Model A's, and to involve spouses and families in fun events and driving tours. Some of the members are interested in era fashions, and subsequently can be seen dressed in the style of the '20s and '30s. Our membership is generally from the Tampa area.
We are all interested in knowing how the Model A works and how it was put together. At our regular monthly meetings we plan to have technical seminars to show how to take it apart and put it back together. During good weather, we can be seen touring around the city and, countryside -- and having fun, of course. We encourage our spouses and family to join us on the tours, since it provides a good opportunity to socialize, and allows them to share the pleasure of the Model A's wonderful ride and a slower view of life, as it was.
We invite you to be part of our club, the Model A Restorers Club, and the Model A Ford Club of America, to learn more about the amazing Ford Model A's... If you own a Model A you can register your classic in the National Registry of the Model A Ford Foundation. Their goal is to collect a comprehensive list of Model A Fords for historical purposes as well as general use within the Model A hobby.
We also invite those how are interested or have questions about the Ford Model A, to contact us. One of our goals is to educate the present so as the future auto mechanics about this, at one time revolutionary automobile.
