The North Penn Model A Ford Club is a group of Model A Ford enthusiasts who are interested in restoring, maintaining, and just plain enjoying the Model A Ford (1928-31). Our membership, coming primarily from the Pennsylvania counties of Montgomery, Bucks and Philadelphia, currently consists of approximately 60 families. All family members are encouraged to participate in our planned events and, indeed, our activities are well attended.
Monthly meetings, held in centrally located Lansdale, PA, are set to meet and talk club business, discuss upcoming events, trips, and other outings, as well as having monthly 'Tech Talks' . One of the favorites is our 'Tech Sessions', where members gather at a local garage and either work together to fix a specific problem (someone's brakes, a cranky carburetor) or to do general maintenance on their own cars in a group of friends with similar interests.
Other highlights are the holiday party, summer picnic, trips to auto shows, including Macungie (Das Awkscht Fescht) in August and Hershey in the fall, a number of local parades, day trips and sometimes longer tours, and many other car-related activities.
The North Penn Model A Ford Club is a member of the international Model A Restorer's Club (MARC). Members of our club are required to join MARC. MARC membership provides a subscription to the Model "A" News, the official bi-monthly magazine publication, which is full of helpful articles, regional club news. and car related ads. Members are entitled to a free 40 word classified ad in each issue of the magazine. MARC also hosts meets and tours in various areas across the country which members can choose to attend.
While Ford Model A ownership is certainly encouraged, it is not required. As a matter of fact, our only other requirement for membership is enthusiasm for cars of the era! Youth are welcome!
