Youth Scholarship Award
March 26 - MAFCA is pleased to offer its financial support and encourages both members and chapters to also support this great program for our Model A youth, either through fund raisers, memorials or individual donations.
The Model A Ford Youth Scholarship Fund, Inc. was established as a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt organization to assist children and/or grandchildren of any MAFCA/MARC member in pursuing their undergraduate education, whether it be a state university, college or technical school. The scholarships awarded are for up to four years. The funds come from financial contributions and various fundraising efforts from MAFCA/MARC members and chapters.
Applications for this year's award are due by MAY 15. For more information, and to download the application package, see the Youth Scholarship Page.
Nevada Introduces Bill to Restrict Eligibility for Classic Vehicle Registration
March 21 - SEMA Alert: Legislation (A.B. 326) to alter the requirements for vehicles eligible for registration as a “classic vehicle” has been introduced in the Nevada Legislature.
Under the bill, the special plates would only be allowed for passenger cars and require that owners provide proof satisfactory to the state that the vehicle is driven solely for personal use and not more than 5,000 miles during an annual registration period. The owner would also be required to have another passenger car or motorcycle registered during the entire registration period. The bill also would now exclude light commercial vehicles from eligibility.
