Greetings and welcome to our site.  We hope that you and yours are staying safe and healthy!

Hope that you are enjoying your February!  Recently we have had some much needed rain in California, which I hope has not caught you off guard.  Our Roadster is usually in the garage when the weather looks a little iffy.  However, we have also had some great weather recently too… and yes the Roadster has been enjoying these sunny days.  As we crest the one year anniversary of COVID-19, these recent days have also brought us some great news in the release of a couple COVID-19 vaccines!  While this news does not mean that Covid is behind us, it only means there is hope.

Speaking of new beginnings… let’s hear it for the 2021 Editor!  Cam Gavis has provided fresh insight into the Model A community as well as shown her wit and enthusiasm for the subject.  In this month’s newsletter you will find President Larry Ryan reflects on Diamond Tread’s experiences in 2020 and his vision for the future, as well as articles on automotive history, member birthday/anniversary and the technical Q&A section.

I would like to follow up this month (actually all months since April) hoping that you and yours are healthy and doing well during this world wide pandemic.  This virus seems to have it’s restrictive grip tightly around the individuals that believe COVID-19 is a real threat.  Walking the political tightrope, I hope that you all are wearing your masks (possibly even face shields now), keeping your social distance and washing/sanitizing your hands frequently.  
Everyone has a role to play.   So much of protecting yourself and your family comes down to common sense:
·        Stay home except for essential needs/activities. 
·        Wear a cloth face mask and face-shield if you leave home.
·        Practice physical distancing – stay 6 feet away from people.
·        Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
·        Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.
·        Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth.
·        Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue or your elbow -  Wash hands afterwards. 
We care about you and want to see you on the road again soon!  Stay Safe!
