Welcome New Chapters


April 19 - MAFCA announces that the ARC A's of Maricopa, Arizona is the newest Chapter. Their charter request was confirmed at the February 4, 2017 MAFCA Board of Directors meeting by unanimous affirmative vote. We are pleased to have you join us.

Welcome to MAFCA and I wish you success with your new Chapter. -- Jay McCord, Chapter Coordinator:

100K in a Model A


April 18 - This year MAFCA has set up a challenge for Chapters and members who don't belong to a chapter, the 100,000 mile challenge. The challenge is to see if we, as a club we can drive 100,000 miles in any one day.

The Goal: To get as many MAFCA members in their Model A’s on the road and excited about driving their Model A Ford. Have each chapter choose one day to tour and accumulate mileage that will then be added to an aggregate of MAFCA members trying to achieve 100,000 miles driven in a day.

What do you do with unrestorable parts?


April 12 - Member Ruben Caballero of San Juan, Puerto Rico
had an unrestorable Zenith carburetor laying around.

With some outside-the-box thinking, he repurposed it into a lamp.

Pretty cool work, Ruben.


2017 National Tour

April 5 - Due to recent California weather, the route for this year's National Tour has had a few changes in the route. For more information, check the event on our Calendar Page or click here.


March 2 - The Bakersfield Model A Ford Club is the host of this year's National Tour. The tour will start at the Estrella Warbird Air Museum in Paso Robles, California.

The meet opens on Sunday, September 24 at noon. After you pick up your registration packet, you will have time to visit the vintage airplanes and the museum before the kick off dinner at 6:30 PM. We have a secured area, also located at the museum, in which to park your motor home and trailer before leaving to explore the beautiful California coast.

March 3 - "News Flash!" The National Tour organizers are aware of the recent bridge wash out on our original tour route and they have already laid out an alternate route around the bad section of road. The Tour will go on!

A new description of the tour and a registration form have been added to the Calendar Page.

board of directors election

April 4 - MAFCA is always looking for a few good members to serve on the MAFCA Board of Directors. We cordially invite you to become a candidate for a two year term. As a MAFCA Director, you will bring to us a regional prospective as well as your experience and knowledge of our great hobby. You will be a part of making policy, providing direction, and learning about the national club of which you are a member.

The board should be a reflection of all the individual clubs and our membership. As I was told, it is a lot of work, but a lot of fun. It is both! All clubs have great leaders that would complement our MAFCA Board of Directors. If you are a “leader” with business experience, computer knowledge, and just want to help out – you are a good candidate. We want diverse Model A activities or ideas that will make MAFCA better. If you have some of these skills and desires, please let us know by applying. If you know any MAFCA members who want to contribute, please encourage them to apply.
