September 22 – Your ballots for 2017 MAFCA Board of Directors and membership renewal notices are now in the mail. Please make sure you return your ballots postmarked no later than October 15, 2016.

You will notice a new option on your membership renewal form. Beginning with the January / February issue of The Restorer magazine, MAFCA will be offering an electronic version of the magazine in addition to the hard copy full color magazine. The renewal form gives you the option of adding an electronic copy for only $5 more. You will be able to view this copy with any Wi-Fi capable device – phone, tablet, or computer. The cost of membership has not changed; it remains $40 for U.S. Members and $50 for Canadian / Mexican Members. If you desire to add the electronic version it would be $45 for US and $55 for Canada/Mexico. The electronic copy will remain on the web for 3 years.

If you have any questions about these options, contact MAFCA headquarters by email at
info @ or by phone (562) 697-2712 Monday - Friday from 10AM to 4PM Pacific time.

Renewal of your membership on time is very important. Please renew by December 31, 2016. We send the printer a listing of all active members at the end of December and The Restorer is mailed to them from the printer.

Those who fail to renew on time and send in their renewals late require a special mailing of the January / February magazine. This involves separate processing and mailing from the office at an additional cost. In the past, those who pay on time have absorbed the cost of those who did not.

This isn't fair, so a $5 late fee will be charged to those renewing after December 31.
Avoid the late fee and renew on time.

International Model A Day

September 12: Several clubs have sent in photos of their chapter's International Model A day celebrations. Their stories and photos are on the IMAD Page.

Model A's "down under"


September 7 - The Model A Ford Club of Queensland recently completed a 5,340 mile round trip from Brisbane to the 2016 23rd National Meet in Darwin Australia.

Pictured is our 1931 five window Coupe that we have had for 26 years and have driven it to every state and Capitol city in Australia. Member Lindsay Harris sent us this interesting story.

August 27 - The Pattern Project video is now available via the MAFCA YouTube channel. The video highlights the enormous work spearheaded by Helen Christensen of the Santa Clara Valley A’s in San Jose, California.

New Release of Restoration Guidelines

August 19 - The long awaited Revision 4 of the Model A Restoration Guidelines and Judging Standards has been announced, with shipping starting in October. The Standards are a collaboration of both MAFCA and MARC and are the definitive guidelines for restoring a Model A Ford to factory original.

Revision 4 was a huge effort. 16 of the judging areas were rewritten. The new Guidelines is 2.5 times larger, 330 pages as opposed to the original 135 pages. Many new photos have been added as well. It wil be available as a complete volume for $55 or just the Revision 4 update that you can add to your existing Standards for $30, both plus shipping.
