January 31 - Your Jan/Feb Restorer is in the mail and the digital version is now posted! As is the case with every January/February issue, MAFCA allows members until the end of December to renew their membership before the presses roll so this version is usually a bit later in the month than others you will receive this year.

Now that members are starting to receive their new  issue, the webmaster has changed the 2022 password to the new 2023 one printed on Page 1 of The Restorer on Tuesday, January 31st!! Be sure to look for the new password on the 1st page of the Jan/Feb 2023 Restorer magazine in order to access the Members Only section of the website after January 31st.

Looking for Grandpa's Model A


January 28 - We received a request from a member asking our help locating a black '30 or '31 Town Sedan that was owned by the member's Grandfather long ago. It had a (likely) Colorado license plate - 23-329. The picture shows the member's father in front of Grandpa's car as a toddler. Given only a license plate, faded picture, and happy memories, this might be impossible, but who knows?

If by chance you know of a '30 or '31 Black Town Sedan with the same numbered plate (or a history of it having one), please contact webmaster and I'll put you in touch with the former owner's grandson.
