Shay/Camelot Model A

 picture

February 7 - In the late 1970s, a man named Harry Shay produced a replica of a 1929 Model A Roadster using a modern Ford chassis and Pinto running gear. About 5000 of them were produced before Harry Shay ceased production, but then more were produced as Camelots.

Over the years, owners of those vehicles created a club and the 2024 Annual Shay Owners Club national meet will be held in Auburn, Indiana, June 4-8, 2024.
