Restorer Cover

 

Welcome to the MAFCA Web Site

The Model A Ford Club of America, Inc. (MAFCA) is dedicated to the restoration, preservation and enjoyment of the Ford Model A and AA cars and trucks, as manufactured from 1928 through 1931. We are an active, family-friendly organization whose members share a passion for these historic vehicles, plus other aspects of life in that era, such as fashions.

MAFCA is a not-for-profit corporation with members and local affiliated chapters all over the globe. This makes us the largest car club in the world dedicated to one make of automobile. We hope you enjoy looking through our site, and we invite you to join us!

Your Input is Needed for MAFCA Conventions

 picture

May 1 - MAFCA is undertaking a new effort to gain input from its members. To begin with, we need your help to identify what you believe is important for a successful MAFCA National Convention.

The survey contains only 10 questions and you can answer online by clicking here. It will only take you about 6 minutes, perhaps less. Will you please help?

If you prefer, send an email to survey @ mafca.com for a written copy that you can return by mail if you don’t have access to the Internet.

The survey will be open for member responses from May 1 to June 30.

You can help shape MAFCA’s National Conventions in the future. Thanks for your help.

"I don't see the new a of the day"

March 28 - If you don't see a new A OF THE DAY, it's because your computer's browser is showing you the image you previously saw. Each browser has a button that allows you to "refresh" or reload the page. Once you do that, the browser goes to the website for the current version of the page.

If you're not familiar with refreshing the browser or clearing the cache, there are several help files in our DOWNLOADS folder to assist you, depending on which computer you use (PC or Mac) and which browser. The help files can be found here: http://www.mafca.com/downloads/Computer.
