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

May is Model A Youth Month.  Since the 1950s and 60s, the Model A hobby hasn’t been exactly overwhelmed with young folks. The Model A Youth Restoration Award program is trying to correct that. They are looking to expose as many kids to the Model A Ford as possible, around the country and abroad. They feel that the Model A experience can still appeal to today’s youth IF they are exposed to it. Exposure at a young age may peak their interest into an exciting past time for their future. Who knows, if they keep their cars stock and in good shape, there may be less chance for speeding tickets!

In April Ben Stone was Diamond Tread's Distinguished Speaker. Ben was 13 when he started restoring his first Model A, with help from his Grandfather Tom Endy. Ben was one of several that have already won the Model A Youth Restoration Award. Do not miss next month's Distinguished Speaker which will be LeRoy Kehert.

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,
