New Youth Coordinator Emily Ellway

Hello, everyone!  My name is Emily Ellway , and I am the Model A Restorers Club’s new Youth Coordinator.  I am very excited to take on the position, having grown up in this amazing environment!  As far as my love for Model A’s go, it is a strong love,  built on  a sturdy foundation.  I have been attending MARC National Meets since before I was even born with my first meet being in Cincinnati in 2001! I grew up in my parents’ (Kevin & Teresa Ellway) 1929 Roadster Pickup, and it will always have a special place


in my heart. Growing up, I enjoyed going to the summer meets and seeing all of our friend s, participating in the chassis rebuild and Hubley race , and enjoying all the other children’s activities!  I also spent many years helping my mom in touring class judging, which I really enjoyed.  The meet has always been one of my favorite parts of summer because it is my way of seeing our country one state at a time, and I am so excited to see you all at the National 2021 Meet in Oshkosh!

As far as introducing myself personally, I am Ohio born and  raised.  I would describe myself as being determined , outgoing and  adventurous.  I have just entered my first year  studying  at  Cleveland  State  University  in the hopes of pursuing a career in the pediatric medical field someday.  I graduated from high school  this  past May  as class  president  and  president of the National Honor Society, and I spent my free time working a part-time job and volunteering around town. I also spent a semester of my sophomore year  studying  abroad  in  Argentina,  which  was  an  amazing  opportunity! I enjoyed high school and growing up around cars of all ages , and I am looking forward to the next chapter in my  life.  I am very excited  knowing  that the next chapter includes continuing to be a part of MARC, and I look forward to spending time encouraging our youth to enjoy this amazing organization  with  all  it has to offer! If you  have any questions , comments  or advice, please reach out to me at  I am truly excited to start in this position, and see you all soon!

Hello Ralph, (OR YOUR NAME)
Are you available to assist? I am out of the State now and I’ve got credence in you to take care of this.I would have called your phone but I presently do not have access to my mobile phone.

Model A Restorers Club <MARC>, needs some gift cards for donation to Veterans at Hospice and Palliative care units for preventive items against Corona Virus Disease ( COVID-19).

I have decided to make it a personal duty. I will be responsible for the reimbursement.
Joe Fox,President.

Work Continues on the MAFFI AA Bus

Someday we will all be going for a ride on the BUS!


Winner of the Jay Leno Garage Raffle

Chris Prondzinski

Of Illinois

The Big Winner of the Jay Leno raffle is Chris Prondzinski.

Chris won the trip for two to visit the Jay Leno collection in Burbank California. Congratulations!

Ken Ehrenhofer presided over the drawing while Rusty Gould, President of the Model A Restorers Club had the honor of drawing the winning ticket.

Ken had his eye on the bus for over 40 years and when the owner passed on and an auction was held Ken had the opportunity to make the purchase.

The previous owner Lee Roy Hartung of Glenview Illinois was a scrap dealer and a major collector of all things antique. The rear wheels of the bus where frozen and a flat bed was used to get it to it’s new home. Ken and the barn crew got it running and gave rides at the Annual Swap meet at Ken’s home. Ken has donated it to the Model A Ford Foundation to be used for giving rides to visitors to the Gilmore Museum upon completion of the restoration. Currently the bus is undergoing a full restoration and the Coastal Carolina A club will have the Chassis completed before the end of this year. When finished it will be only one of three adult passenger buses built by the Union City Bus company to exist. Follow the restoration as we go along…..

My 1930 Model A in Italy

I won a trophy at the car show on Sunday the 23rd June 2019 and thought you might like to look at the pictures. The Ford is registered in the Italian system and I have plates to drive anytime and where ever I choose. Take it out only for special occasions such as pick up the Grand children from school, Club functions and etc. This Ford is causing a lot of commotion here in Vicenza, it’s not uncommon to see an old Ferrari on the streets, but to see this ford is absolutely unbelievable for the Italians. I get thumbs up every where I go and outstanding comments. This is truly a way to share a part of America’s past with The Italian people.
