A day trip in the Model A… just for the fun of it. Photos & Video below:
The first time I met Brian’s parents was Labor Day weekend in 2004. We flew from L.A. to Colorado and that was the weekend of the Automobile License Plate Collectors Association, which we attended. I like to call it the national license plate convention. This was just an introduction for me. Since then I have been lucky to learn more about license plates, chauffer badges, woodwork, and lots of other interesting subjects that I’m normally not exposed to, such as old cars.
My father-in-law, Mike, had a Model A growing up. His Grandfather bought the Model A in 1959 for $150. Recently Mike rebuilt the engine and we took it on a short trip into the mountains. We had a lovely picnic thanks to C. Sweens, a.k.a Cindy Sweeney. Thank you for letting us film you guys the entire trip!
Mike is part of The Rocky Mountain Model A Club in Franktown & The Model A Ford Club of Colorado, Inc. in Denver. He’s a great resource so check out his website (under construction).
