August President's Message

Posted by Editor on August 6, 2015 at 1:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Hard to believe that then end of Summer is already here. We had a great turnout for the July Monthly Meeting with over 55 members attending the annual Ice Cream Social. All manner of ice cream was served along with cakes and other assorted goodies.

We had three new members join our club at the July meeting. Please make the welcome when you meet them in the coming months.

No driving events are planned for August but the annual watermelon feast at this month's meeting is always a treat.

On Sunday August the 30th from 2-4pm we will be conducting car games for the AACA (Antique Auto Club of America's) 2015 Glidden Tour. This is a tour of pre war automobiles that has not been in Oklahoma City since 1915. If you can help with the games please contact Phil Wolfenbarger or myself and come and see some of the finest antique automobiles in America.

As always looking forward to seeing you and your A on the road.

Why Model A Demonstration's Are Important

Posted by Editor on March 28, 2012 at 10:10 AM Comments comments (0)

If you attended last months meeting you were lucky to hear and see Bob Bordwine give an excellent demonstration on Model A Steering. With a group as large as ours everyone has there own specific things that they are working on and concerned with about their cars.

One of our new members who lives in Woodward sent in this great testimony as to the value of sharing what this great group of Model A mechanics know.

Thanks to Rock Simmons for sharing his experiences and thanks again to Bob Bordwine for a great demonstration.

Last months meeting that included steering tune up was extremely informative. After a few adjustments,a new ball on my steering arm, and proper spring adjustments on my pitman arm and drag links the personality of my sedan has changed. It's not scary anymore!

The width of the road is no longer a problem. The length .....that's another problem.
