About Us

"Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success."
-- Henry Ford

The Dallas Model A Ford Club, Inc. is a for profit corporation of Texas and a chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America, Inc. (MAFCA), a national historical society dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the Model A Ford automobile as manufactured from 1928 through 1931. The club is also a region of the Model A Restorers Club (MARC).

The Dallas Model A Ford Club dues are $20.00, which includes a monthly digital issue of The Quail Tale sent to your e-mail address. For an additional $30.00, a printed edition will be mailed to your home. And for an additional $5.00, your Membership Roster will be mailed to you.

Club membership is required in the national clubs to maintain our official affiliation. The officers and board members urge every member to join both national clubs or at least one. Applications for national membership are in the back of the Club Roster.

Possession of a Model A Ford is not required for membership; only your interest and participation. Meetings are usually held on the second Sunday of the first eleven months. For information about specific meetings, please contact us.
