Our organization name is Diamond Tread Chapter, Model A Ford Club of America.

Thank you for visiting our Internet site.

Greetings and welcome to our site.  This is Diamond Tread's 50th year as a club (officially on March 14th 2019)! 
 
WOW... looks like winter waited until December to arrive.  Christmas lights are popping up all over town, there is snow in the local mountains and neighbors are gathering at city centers for tree lighting celebrations.  December is the twelfth and final month of the year in both the Julian and Gregorian Calendars.   December is also the seventh and last of seven months to have a length of 31 days.  December got its name from the Latin word decem (meaning ten) because it was originally the tenth month of the year in the Roman.  Some days of celebration in the month of December are: World AIDS Day, National Mutt Day, Giving Tuesday, National Cookie Day, Pearl Harbor Day of Rememberance, US National Guards Birthday, Ugly Sweater Day, Winter Solstice, Chanukah, Hanukkah, Festivus, Christmas, Kwanzaa and New Years Eve.   Let's hope that you find some good weather this month to get our Model A's out on the road. 
 
Please take a look at the December newsletter for details on: date/time for the Christmas Luncheon and Installation of Officers, December's scheduled tour, Horseless Carriage Club Holiday Motor Excursion, photos from the November tour, Sparks Luncheon, UPDATE ON FABULOUS FORDS FOREVER and Clara Voyent's prediction for 2020! 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

The Diamond Tread Newsletter is sent electronically in a .pdf format, to everyone that wants a copy.  If you are interested, please send your name and eMail address where the pdf can be sent to both the Editor and Webmaster entries below.  This will allow us to cross check that all requests have been satisfied.  Just to bring everything full circle, that eMail broadcast will have a link to the Diamond Tread Web Site.

Every club needs a little help and our advertisers help make it all happen.  Please patronize all of our advertisers.

Look forward to seeing you at the next meeting... happy driving.
