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

Chris Risdon finished up his three-part series with a discussion on “Electric Vehicles of the Future”. Chris touched on the progress being made in the infrastructure to support electrical vehicles, as well as comments on the progress of Hydrogen vehicles and its associated infrastructure changes. For me, the fact that a Hydrogen vehicle could be topped off in five minutes vs hours for an electric vehicle was impressive. The entire series was very interesting! The February distinguished speaker will be Ben Stone. Ben is one of ten recipients of the MAFCA 2022 Model A Youth Restoration Award.

The Santa Monica Museum of Flying tour was rescheduled again due to inclement weather. However, Larry Ryan was successful in completing the tour on January 27th.

Our own Vicky Bartlett received a MAFCA recognition in the way of the MAFCA Service Award. This special award is presented to those individuals that have demonstrated a continuing and selfless service to others in the Model A hobby. Jim Runyon and Dennis Stevens presented this award to Vicky on behalf of MAFCA.
Congratulations Vicky… we are glad you are on our Team!

Hi, I am a member of the national club and the Houston club as well.  I am hoping to find some history on this p.u. that I purchased a year ago in October.  The seller couldn't come up with anything and since he was in Long Beach, I was hoping someone around there might recognize it and get in touch with me.  Mainly I am wanting to know what may have been done on the engine through the years.  It runs well but I am afraid to drive it hard until I know.  The number is the same on the frame and engine, A 3460596. 
Thanks in advance for helping,
Dale Muenzler,
