Model A Friends,
Spring has finally arrived with up and down temperatures and Oklahoma wind. However, it is a great time to get your “A” out of the barn and take it for a drive. It is not too cold and not too hot. The wind will just enhance your skill at keeping the old girl between the fence posts.
The spring tour, hosted by the Tulsa Club, was great fun. Eight Model A’s from our club made the drive to Elk City. We also had two couples in modern cars in attendance. Friday was the busy day of the tour. In the morning we visited the Route 66 museum that is full of memorabilia from the “Mother Road.” After lunch we drove to Cheyenne to visit the Washita Battlefield National Historic Site. After leaving the battlefield we visited a private car collection in Cheyenne. This is an amazing collection ranging from Model T’s to 1970’s muscle cars. The Tulsa Club always does a fantastic job of organizing a tour.
Check the Scuttlebutt, Facebook, or our website for upcoming events and make a point to attend at least one of them. It doesn’t matter that your car might not be road worthy, drive your modern car and enjoy the fun with your Sooner Club members. You can also catch a ride in a Model A to fully participate in an event such as a parade. There are plenty of sedans with back seats available and you are very welcome.
I hope to see you on the road in your Model A.
Jim Yates, 2018 President

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.
2015 Chapter President

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.

Many, many items were donated by club members and of course, all items were purchased by other club members. Great items were available, even a ladies Rolex! A great time was had by all. Thank you to all who attended, donated and purchased!

The August 2010 Tuesday evening club meeting was not only informative, it was cool! Ice Cream Cool! We had 49 members in attendance! After the general club meeting and announcements, Will Langford demonstrated our new Sooner Model A Club website, showing us how to become a site member, add photo's, video's and much more. Then we enjoyed many flavors of home made ice cream as well as pies, cakes, deserts, cinnamon rolls, cookies, and more. We all enjoyed every bite as well as the company of our fellow Sooner Model A members. DON'T FORGET ABOUT NEXT MONTHS MEETING. FREE CHILI AND SIDE DISHES. BRING YOUR APPETITE, BRING YOUR DONATIONS FOR THE CLUB FUND RAISING AUCTION AND BRING YOUR CHECKBOOK TO BUY GREAT ITEMS. See you there!

The July Monthly Meeting was held at the Will Rogers Garden Center.
35 people were in attendance. Johnnie Gentry won the 50/50 pot so when you see him next he should buy the coffee. The July 4th Liberty Fest was a rousing success with 17 cars and 28 attendees.
