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

There are a couple of unprecedented changes in the air…
  • Meeting location
  • Date of the Diamond Tread Club meetings

Due to after school hour activities, the Downey School District has advised Diamond Tread that we would no longer be able to use the facilities at Gallatin Elementary School. As a result, the Board is considering permanently relocating the monthly meetings to Calvary Cross Chapel Preschool in Cerritos. The first meeting at Calvary Cross will be Thursday, November 11th at 6:30pm. The address is: 16705 Gridley Rd, Cerritos. We look forward to seeing you there.
Please note: the Calvary Cross parking lot is concrete, so please bring an oil drip bib for your Model A.

As we enter November, we are finally seeing the two California seasons (Sunny and Not Sunny) begin to change. While we Californians take our gorgeous climate for granted, there are times when the weather is inclement enough that our Roadster does not get out of the garage. While those inclement days are not as frequent as they used to be here in California, they are still present.

The Nominating Committee identified the nominees at the October meeting and December is typically the installation of new officers. Find out who will be representing the club next year by attending the November meeting or check back in for an update in the December “Newsletter.”

Take a look at the “Newsletter” page and you will see: informative updates from the President, summary of last month’s events via the monthly minutes, what the Red Hot Sparks are up to, who is celebrating a Birthday/Anniversary, upcoming events for this month to get you out on an outing and exercise your Model A and finally a bit humor via the Editor Emeritus Exhaust.

There have been some updates to the history presented in the “About Us” page. New things you may never have known about the club. If you or the family happen to have any tidbits of Diamond Tread history to share, please send an eMail to Editor@diamondtread.com.

Due to the fact General Membership Meetings will be held inside of a room that is filled during the day with several children and teachers, collectively we will need to be Covid safe.  CDC recommends:
  • People who have a condition or are taking medications that weaken their immune system may not be fully protected even if they are fully vaccinated. They should continue to take all precautions recommended for unvaccinated people, including wearing a well-fitted mask, until advised otherwise by their healthcare provider.
  • If you are fully vaccinated, to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission.
  • Put 6 feet of distance between yourself and people who don’t live in your household.  
    • Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
    • Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms lengths) from other people.
    • Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

We care about you and want to see you on the road again soon!  Stay Safe!   
If you are a club member that would like their car posted in the "Our Cars" section, please send a jpg file to WebMaster@diamondtread.com.  Accompany that picture with year and model style.  If you have any comments or corrections, please also forward those to WebMaster@diamondtread.com
