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.. July was the Diamond Tread Henry Ford Picnic which brought 55 cars and 145 guests to Heritage Park in Santa Fe Springs. With August here North America will see the first Solar Eclipse since February 1979. Check it out for the next Solar Eclipse will not be until April 2024 and it will not have the coverage of this eclipse. On average, it takes about 375 years for a total solar eclipse to happen again at the same location. By comparison, a total lunar eclipse, also known as a Blood Moon, can be seen from any location approximately every 2.5 years.
In the newsletter take a look at the article that features the car of Luke and Margie Sayer's 1929 Closed Cab Pickup Truck. Read about their adventure with a Craigslist Model A, it may spark an interest in you to follow suit.
