Happy New Year and a New Decade... 2020 is here, as is your new Board of
Directors! Will this decade be the
Roaring 20's as we saw in the 20th century or something entirely more elaborate? The last
decade brought us many advancements, however our Model A's still retain their glamour. Can't wait to see how we humans evolve enough
to make this ever changing world in which we live in a better place. As we Californian's breeze through another
winter (compared to the rest of the nation), please take the opportunity to
find some good weather this month to get your Model A's out on the road.
