of the Dayton Buckeye Model A Ford Club
Dayton Buckeye Model A Ford Club, Inc. was formed in April of 1967. Five
Model A owners got together at the NCO Club of Wright-Patterson Air Force
Base to discuss the possibility of forming a Model A Club in the Dayton
area. From then on the activities of the club have been adding miles and
smiles to Model A owners.
date the club has approximately 120 members
with over 150 Model A vehicles and numerous other classic and collectable
cars, including a LaSalle and a Chevrolet. We attribute our success
to the events, tours, outings and meetings the members enjoy throughout
the year. Some of the events held annually include an anniversary
party, a Christmas party, a chicken bar-b-que, a swap meet, a Moth
Ball Run, (held in the spring), and a tour to the national club's
annual Model A club meet. This meet is
held anywhere from Dallas, Texas, to Minneapolis,
Minnesota, from coast to coast and to which several members drive their Model As. Other activities have included raffling off a
ride an a hot air balloon and chasing it
in our Model As, a scavenger hunt, an overnight or out-of-state tour,
tours to various points of interest, restoring a Model A chassis, and several
types of road rallies. We have hosted national Model A club meets.
members have driven their cars 10 to 30 thousand miles since the club's beginning. Besides driving, our club features a
wealth of restoration and technical
information that is especially valuable to new and perspective members. Plus, when the occasion arises we can offer
to those who need it, from painting to
various mechanical restoring and rebuilding tasks.
members come from all walks of life, from farmers and factory workers, to
business women and office workers. These people are not only from the Dayton
and Miami Valley area, some are from as far away as Texas, Indiana,
and Michigan. In short, you don't
have to be anyone special, own a super shiny show car, or
own 12 Model As to join in the fun. Sometimes when we take our cars on tour, we ARE the parade!
