September 26, 1993, the Lone Star Model A Ford Club is a Chapter of the
Model A Ford Club of America, a national
historical society dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the
Model A Ford automobile as manufactured from 1928 through 1931." Our
Charter was issued on December 4, 1993.
That was the formal description. The informal description is much harder
to pin down:
- We are a group of people who love driving "Henry's Lady."
- This interest crosses all age groups from young families with small
children to the retired generation.
- Our membership includes more than 80 families and over 100 Model
A Ford automobiles.
- We have official meetings
once a month
and informal breakfast meetings every
Saturday morning. In fact, we've
been meeting so long, the our club was recognized in the
- We have car clinics, we kick tires, we provide photo opportunities,
we join parades. Shoot, when we get three Model A Fords on the road,
we are a parade!
Mostly we drive our Model A's. We have been known to drive somewhere
just to eat lunch. The best thing about going somewhere together is that
no one is ever left on the roadside. If anyone has mechanical difficulties,
these guys just love to get under the hood.
- The Texas Tour every June
- The Bluebonnet Tour in April
- The Mystery Tour in May - also known as "Follow the Leader and Trust
- Henry Ford's Birthday Party / Picnic / Ice Cream Social / Tour in
- Hog Eye Festival and the Texas Early Day Tractor & Engine Show
- A Christmas Shopping Tour in November
We have driven from Georgetown to
Bend National Park and back. (Well, most of us made it back on our own
four wheels. Some of us needed help.) We have been to
College Station, Salado, and Elgin, not all in the same day, but all in
Texas. We have also driven to Baton Rouge, Louisiana in 1996 and to Breckenridge,
Colorado in 1995 where the club was awarded the "Hard
Luck Trophy." Some of us returned to Breckenridge in 2001 for
in a Model A Ford.
We hosted the 50th
Annual Texas Model A Ford Tour in June 2013. We hosted the
42nd in June 2005 and the
in 1998. We look forward to the Annual
Texas Model A Ford Tour every June.
The Lone Star Model A Ford Club is tax exempt from Federal income tax
under section 501 (c) (7) of the Internal Revenue Code.
note that it is not necessary to own a Model A Ford to belong to
LSMAFC - all you need is an interest in "Henry's Lady." Ford produced more
than 5 million Model A's in various body styles and it is amazing how many
are still on the road today. We welcome you to join the club and drive "modern
iron" on our tours. The newest cars are relegated to the back of the line,
but believe me when I tell you that it just gives you more incentive to
buy a running Model A Ford of your very own.
We have a Facebook group page for dues paying
members. Simply do a search for LSMAFC and select Lone Star Model A Ford Club.
