An International Model A Meet which will not be soon forgotten. The friendship amongst MARC members was evident in every aspect of the meet. The entertainment was super and the good times rolled in Niagara Falls. The hospitality of our Canadian friends could not have been better. Thank you to all Canadians and all who helped and sacrificed to make this meet one of the best ever!

1930 Standard Tudor

Owners: Bill & Cindy Rauscher
Huntley, Illinois
(MARC of Excellence)

This car was a 5 year project from a basket case. With the help of a lot of friends it won 432 points at the joint MARC/MAFCA meet in Texas. “Henry” has been a lot of fun for us. We drive the car every chance we get, greeted by cheers and waves from everyone we see.

1930 Town Sedan

Owner: Phil and Nancy Carlson
Campbell, California

I purchased this car in 1960 in Minnesota for $10, after it had been retired from service as a mail delivery vehicle on rural routes, having traveled some 150K miles. It has since spent years as a farm vehicle, daily driver ( high school, college) and many more years in a corner of the garage waiting for reassembly and restoration. It was partially restored, reassembled, and back on the road in 2010. We have been MARC members since 1975, when the car was moved to the Bay Area.

The car was painted red in 1960, and that paint is holding up after more than 50 years. A new paint job is in the plans for the future. The engine was rebuilt by my father and myself in 1965.

Beginning in late 2009, the fenders were reworked, painted, and reinstalled along with the correct wheels which were powder coated and had new tires installed. The front end was completely restored and front and rear brakes were rebuilt while another hobbyist was reworking and painting the fenders and running boards for us.

The 82 year old interior is well worn but continues to be used with no near term plans to replace it. The door panels were repaired and refurbished when all of the glass was replaced in 2011.

1929 Standard Coupe

Owner: Phil and Nancy Carlson
Campbell, California

We purchased this car in Santa Cruz CA in 1986. It had an older restoration at that time that has held up well. Mechanical repairs and some upgrades have kept it on the road for 26 years. Our daughters rode in the rumble seat when they were small- now our granddaughters ride there. For several years parts were borrowed off the Town Sedan: now both cars are running and on the road.

1931 Right-Hand Drive Roadster

Owner: Happy Begg
Irmo, South Carolina

This roadster was manufactured in Canada, assembled at the Port Elizabeth, South Africa Ford Assembly plant. It spent most of it’s life in South Africa. It was imported to the US in 1992. I purchased the car in 2009 and have driven it more than 6,000 miles to date, 5/9/2011. This photo was taken in front of The Orchard Inn, Saluda, North Carolina, after climbing the Saluda Grade.
