Model A Ford Club of America has a national convention every two years. This year the convention is in Mansfield, Massachusetts. Now we live in California and have attended the last couple conventions in Riverside, CA and in Portland, OR which are relatively close to us in the San Jose, CA area. On our way back from Portland in 2004, as we drove through Medford, OR in our roadster in the 110 degree heat, Pat and I agreed that we would not be driving to MA, and we made a pact on a scrap of paper and both signed it.
But as 2006 rolled around, the lure of the open road began to beckon to us and we realized that this is the Model A trip of a lifetime. We both agreed on one thing however, roll up windows and an air conditioner are essential cause we are just not as tough as we used to be. Well, we found the Little Black Coupe last fall, and have been working on it ever since, new engine, new transmission, overdrive, and AIR CONDITIONING! We are ready. Our club will be sending 6 cars off to MA in two groups. We will be leaving on July 6 with 3 other cars and plan on taking 10 to 12 days to get there. So stand by folks, more to come.
