THis Tudor gets around


July 31 - New member Donald Hight MD from Connecticut sent along a photo of a special Tudor Sedan. A friend of his brother-in-law started driving this car in 1961, and has since driven 497,000 miles and installed 12 engines over the years.

A trip to Florida or Pennsylvania is no issue for David Wright. His goal is to hit 500,000 in the next few months.

Model A Day Cancelled

July 14 - Sadly, MAFFI has reluctantly decided to cancel Model A Day X in September due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Read the details here.


what's cookin'?


July 14 - Back in 2009, the late John Kopf from the Santa Clara Valley Chapter created a manifold cook book. John compiled the instructions and recipes from other sources, mostly a paperback, "Manifold Destiny" by Chris Maynard and Bill Scheller, and recipes from various sites on the internet.

He put it together mostly for a short tour his chapter was going to take. John and his wife Peggy found it was fun to see just what their members decided to cook, and whether it was successful or not. Unfortunately, John passed away a year later.

June 28 - The webmaster has received lots of "thank you" messages about the A of the Day Puzzle. One member asked, "How can I use yesterday's A of the Day for a puzzle?"

This is very doable, in fact you can choose ANY photo on your computer to use as a puzzle. So I explained to him that first he has to download yesterday's photo.

Since many of you might be thinking the same thing, I wrote up the instructions for finding the A OF THE DAY photo you want (up to 30 days of back photos are on the website) -OR- choose a photo you already have on your computer.

To view the instructions, click here. Happy puzzling!

members with email

June 14 - Since the beginning of our website, we have a Members with Email section where MAFCA members can list their email address and Model A interests so that other members can keep in touch, ask questions, etc.

Our "listmaster"Tom Boergert has just sent in the latest versions of those lists, one sorted by member name and one sorted by location. You can find the updated lists in the MEMBERS ONLY area.

I've just taken a look and am surprised how many old entries are in there. Many of us have changed email address and locations since we first entered our names, so now is a good time for all members to take a look at those lists. If your information in out of date, or if your name is NOT in the lists, you can click on the link to get your information updated.

June 10 - Paul Shinn, member from California, recently was invited to see the fabulous collection of Model A's owed by MAFCA master judge Doug and Debbie Clayton in Stockton, California. Doug allowed him to shoot a YouTube video and Paul posted it last week. Click here to see it.
