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:
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. Previous tours include:
We have driven from Georgetown to Big 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 Marlin, 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 2001 Miles in a Model A Ford.
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.
