Links - Cars and People
The intent of this section is to provide links to educate and assist our members to restore their Model A Fords. These sites include Model A, classic/antique vehicle, or historical automotive-related information. Since MAFCA is a non-profit organization, we do not link to sites that are commercial or political.
The selection of each link is carefully considered. If you have suggestions for additional links, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Every suggestion will be considered on its own merit. Thank you.
Note: the following links are on this page.
Feel free to scroll up and down instead of clicking on them.
