The North Penn Model A Ford Club hosted the 2022 MARC National Meet from June 5-11 in Morgantown, PA. The 600+ people who attended, made this year's Meet a great success. Model A'ers are an awesome bunch.
The local area, venue, and all the planned events did not disappoint. There were lots of smiles at the Welcome Party as we kicked off the week. The Fashion Swap Meet offered plenty of vintage clothing items for sale and the various Seminars were very helpful and greatly attended. The Auction was powered by 140+ donated items from the attendees that made bidding so much fun. The money raised from the Auction to benefit the Ford Model A Museum has not yet been finalized but let's say it's over $7000. Did I mention that Model A'ers are an awesome bunch?
If you didn't find something at the auction there was the outdoor Swap Meet. The Touring and Fine Point Judging drew a nice crowd to look from the Hospitality hallway to see the 150, green hat judges swarm around 40 Model A's. It was great to relax and cool off at the Ice Cream Social with the gallons and gallons of dished ice cream that were adorned with numerous toppings. Yum!
The weather cooperated beautifully as approximately 140 Model A's ventured out on the 33-mile Grand Tour then returning to a Picnic to cap the day. There was the competition of the Hubley Derby Race, the drawing of all the Raffles, then wrapping it all up with the Awards Banquet.
Phew!!...and that was all happening at the Holiday Inn - Morgantown and the interconnected Classic Auto Mall. Thank you so much to their staff for making this event spectacular! We most certainly could not have done it without them.
If all the activities at the Meet were not enough then Discovering Lancaster was able to direct you to a Horse and Buggy ride, the shops at the Rockvale Outlets, the amusement rides at Dutch Wonderland, the Pennsylvania Fare at the Kitchen Kettle Village, or climbing aboard a steam train at the Strasburg Railroad...just to name a few.
The biggest attraction of all was meeting the hundreds of fellow Model A'ers from around the country and seeing the Model A they drove up in. AHOOGA!!
The North Penn Model A Ford Club (NPMAFC) is a group of Model A Ford enthusiasts who are interested in restoring, maintaining, and driving the Model A Ford (1928-31). Our membership, comes primarily from the Pennsylvania counties of Montgomery and Bucks, and currently has over 50 families. All family members are encouraged to participate in all our events and activities.
Other highlights are the holiday party, summer picnic, trips to auto shows, local parades, day trips, 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 NPMAFC 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. 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 to be a club member. Who knows, your enthusiasm for cars of this era may get you rolling down the road in a Model A.

Monthly meetings are set to meet and talk club business, discuss upcoming events, trips, and other outings, as well as having monthly 'Tech Talks'. Our Tech Sessions gather members at a local garage and either work together to fix a specific problem (brakes, a cranky carburetor, etc.) or to do general maintenance on their own cars in a group of friends with similar interests.
NEXT MEETING: TBD
