Kids having fun in Morgantown
Summer fun and learning were the opportunities offered by the youth coordinator, Emily Ellway, at the MARC National 2022 in Morgantown, PA. The kids that joined in for the disassembly and reassembly, on two different days, enjoyed the chance to learn how to take wheels off a chassis, by working together and to take a few parts off a motor. The chassis was loaned by someone trying to sell it and the motor was there in the repair tent. Unfortunately, by Friday, the host group had packed up the repair tent, so there were no tools to do the reassembly. Thankfully, Emily brought out what tools she had and a gentleman (with the long white beard in the photos) opened the back of his Model A pick up and let the kids use some of his tools to work on the engine, that they had disassembled on Tuesday. He was a very nice person and helped talk the kids through what they needed to do, when guidance was needed. Emily also had silly slime in her toolbox, so the kids had a fun finish to their afternoon. Boys and girls alike were so interested in helping. Emily did an amazing job along with her boyfriend, who played hopscotch with the littler girls when they got done in the parking lot. It’s great to see so much interest in doing this and all the adults that come to watch the kids, helps support the importance of this activity, especially for the future of the Model A and other Nationals to come.

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 [email protected]. I am truly excited to start in this position, and see you all soon!
