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

Happy New Year! We hope that the ringing in of the new year brings you health, prosperity, happiness and many miles of safe Model A driving. 

2023 has already brought us several changes:

  • Dennis Stephens has been elected our 2023 Club President. Yes, Larry Ryan has passed the Presidential baton after six years of his selfless contribution to this position.
  • Rex Bartholomew elected as the Club’s new Editor. Rex brings extensive publishing experience to his new position with the club. The Newsletter will be sent electronically via eMail before the end of the month and presented on the website the first of the month.
  • You will be excited to know that Rex has reintroduced the previous Newsletter format! The Newsletter will be sent electronically via eMail and seen on our website.
  • Larry Ryan has taken the baton from J.C. Stephenson.  J.C. has guided our club on many great adventures for many years, for which we are very grateful. Larry has some big shoes to fill!
  • Club meeting dates have changed to the FIRST Tuesday of the month. There will be a Board Of Director’s meeting at 6:00pm and the General meeting will begin at 6:30pm. The meetings will continue to be held at Calvary Cross Chapel Preschool in Cerritos.

We all realize that there is a drought here in California, which should be taken seriously. On the bright side, that brings us more fair-weather days to drive our Model A’s. There are some of us that only drive in good weather (referring to myself – I do not take the soft top out unless the sun is out :-).

Take a look at our “Newsletter” page and you will see: informative updates from the President, summary of last month’s events via the monthly minutes, upcoming events to get you out on an outing and exercise your Model A, Membership news, details on where the Red Hot Sparks will be meeting, who is celebrating a Birthday/Anniversary, Classified Ads, Editorial musings from the Editor and finally links to relevant MAFCA pages.

Please visit our Advertisers page to patronize those in the community that help support our club.

If you use a Google Calendar, please consider merging the Diamond Tread Calendar in with your own. This will allow you to view our upcoming events at a glance. This calendar is also posted on the Diamond Tread website’s Events/Dates page.
