95 Years Ago - This Day in History


December 1, 1927 - First Ford advertisement introducing the new Model A. After months of no official word on the new Ford car after the Model T was discontined in mid-year, the announcement was eagerly read by millions across the USA.

From Hemmings:

"The Model A offered buyers elegant styling (described as a "downsized Lincoln" by some), four-wheel brakes, improved fuel economy, a laminated safety glass windshield, hydraulic shock absorbers, and a four-cylinder engine rated at 40 horsepower, enough to deliver a top speed of 65 MPH.

Seven body types were offered at launch, including Sport Coupe, Coupe, Roadster, Phaeton, Tudor sedan, Fordor sedan, and truck, and buyers could choose from four colors (Niagara Blue, Arabian Sand, Dawn Gray and Gun Metal Blue)."

Members with Email


October 7 - One feature of this website, which was present at the very beginning in 1997 was the page "Members with Email," which allows members to voluntarily list their names, location, Model As, and special interests. And a little mailbox icon which will allow other members to send them email.

If you look at some of the member information on that page, you'll notice that some of the entries haven't been updated in over 20 years. Since people move and change email addresses over time, many of those entries are no long accurate. We have removed any entry dated before 2010.

If your information has been removed and you wish to be reinstated, simply click on the link on that page to add your name back and provide your current information.

MAFCA Login Credentials

October 2 - There are two places where a MAFCA member needs to enter credentials. The first is on the website to access the MEMBERS ONLY area. You need a username and password to access the MEMBERS ONLY area, but IT'S THE SAME FOR EVERY MEMBER. The credentials are published on page 1 of every Restorer Magazine, so look there if you're accessing this area for the first time. The username for this area will ALWAYS be the same. The password will change each January. To see where the credentials are located on Page 1, click Here.

The other place where you'll need credentials is to access the Digital Restorer magazine if you've signed up for it. Access requires your email address for USERNAME and a 6-digit membership number (add a leading zero) for the password. For more info on Digital Restorer, click Here.
