Feature of the Week - Era Ads


November 26 - During the Model A era, Ford advertised in many newspapers and magazines. Some of the ads were in black and white; most were in full color. Photographs of the cars were seldom used; artists' depicted scenes of the 20s and 30s.

Many of our members have submitted copies of the Model A ads that they have been collecting. They are presented on our Era Ads page which you'll find listed under FUN STUFF on the left menu.

If you also collect era ads and have some we don't have on our pages, please send scanned images to the webmaster. Enjoy!

Getting from DFW to the NAB in Fort Worth

November 21 - From Rick Black, Webmaster

I'm flying from El Paso to Dallas Fort Worth airport and I need to find transportation from DFW to the NAB in Fort Worth. Seems like there's no hotel shuttle, so one must take a taxi, Uber, or some other mode of transportation. So I propose a "ride-share" solution.

If you are arriving at DFW for the NAB on December 2 or 3 and want to share a taxi or Uber or whatever, send me an email with your name, cell phone number, arrival time and airline and I'll share that information with other MAFCA travelers in the hopes that we can get people together to share a ride.

Toy Car


November 17 - A member sent in this photo of a toy car which resembles a Model A Tudor Sedan.

Notice the decal on the top. Could this have been a promotional item from the Model A era? Click on the image for a larger view.
