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..  

Independence Day is upon us and I am thankful to have it (Thank You to all that make that possible).  The celebrations will most likely be slightly tamer this year as the 4th of July lands smack in the middle of the week.   As I am still a working stiff, it is great to break the week up!  On this Day of Independence, I like to get the Model A out and at least tour the neighborhood.  Everyone is in a joyous spirit and always happy to see the Model A out and about.   I am sure that everywhere you tour (personally or as a club) that most people are happy to see our Model A's out and about.   Enjoy the great weather that is shared with us here in California, but be sure to take the sunscreen and plenty of water.

Take a look through this month's Newsletter to see activities planned for July (Meeting In The Park and Model T Parts Exchange), read a little bit about cars in the life of our President, view the collage of photos taken at the Henry Ford Picnic and read the tidbits on an all Stainless Steel Model A.

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.

The purpose of our club is to:

  • Enjoy, Preserve and Protect the Model A Ford
  • Serve as a medium in the exchange of ideas, information and parts
  • Aid in efforts to restore Model A's to their original likeness
  • Help members to become better acquainted, encourage and maintain the spirit of good fellowship, sociality and fair play through sponsored activities, including the use of the Model A Ford and family participation
  • Be non-commercial, non-sectarian and non-partisan.  As a non-profit organization
