In 2011 the MARC Judging Standards Committee created a new award called the “Roger Kauffman Award”. Roger was one of our most well known and recognizable members. As Technical advisor his column in the Model A News was one of the most popular. This award will honor his memory and passion for all that is Model A Ford. The award is not intended for the highest point total vehicle but the vehicle that Roger would have loved the most as it would have come “out of the barn”. The award is chosen by a select committee headed by Roger’s wife Diane. The inaugural Roger Kauffman Award was presented to Rob Mills 1929 AA Fire Truck.
The second winner of the Roger Kauffman Award was Bill Edstrom with a 400-A Convertible Sedan with 8000 original miles. This award was presented to Bill at the 2014 National Convention at French Lick Indiana.
