President Steve P. presenting Norm J. a MAFCA award for his outstanding service to the club.
A good turn out for the banquet but most people chose modern in the snow.
Most of the snow is gone and we doubled our Model A turn out by the regular meeting at the end of April.
Good attendance at the April meeting in Dennis's garage. Thanks Dennis.
May 2019. Superior A members at the MARC Model A Round-Up in Muskegon, MI.
Model A's parked for a meal on the USS LST 393 during the round-up.
A stop during a day tour at the world's largest working weathervane in Montague, Mi.
A visit to The Gilmore Museum on our return trip. Well worth a visit when you are in the area or for a planned trip just to see the museum. You can easily spend a day there.
Superior A Paver near the entrance to the Model A section of the Gilmore Museum.
Model A engine #1 at the museum.
Doug's recently restored tudor sedan gets a lot of attention at the May meeting. The sedan is thought to have been a police car for the Calumet and Heckla Mine.
A little better showing of cars for the May meeting at the Cliff's Shaft Museum. The snow is finally gone.
Lot's of discussion at the meeting now that we are finally entering our comfortable driving season.
Lined up and ready for the spring tour to Grand Marais. It's a beautiful day for a ride.
Don G. will provide the escort. Staying behind the police is one way to keep the speed reasonable. Believe it or not some people would like to travel faster than 45mph.
Every stop on the way attracted admiring visitors with questions about the cars.
Lined up in Grand Marais. A beautiful day for a senic cruise along H-58.
A hungry bunch ready for a meal and rest before the return trip.
A quick stop in Munising at a wedding with an old theme on the return.
Harry followed us with the support vehicle and an empty trailer for the entire day. A couple adjustments to some A's on the trip but everybody drove the entire way. Over two hundred miles for some members. A great day with friends. Thanks Harry!
We did see this guy along the way that cranked and cranked but never got his running while we were there.
A Barbecue and show at the Brookridge Assisted Living Facility in July.
Some of the Superior A members along with others drove some newer vehicles. A nice day enjoyed by the residents.
The Spur Township firetruck at the Michigamme Museum.
Many Superior A's made the trip for Michigamme's Cabin Days in July. Always a fun day at the museum.
Dick's Sears Motor Car is always a hit and usually the oldest one there.
A great turnout for the June regular meeting at the Ely Township Hall. Thanks for hosting Tom.
Doug made it again. He's getting some miles on his newly finished sedan.
We did have a little rain on the trip but Norm was able to stay fairly dry.
I think Paul was worried 45mph wasn't going to get him there on time. Nice car.
A good turnout for the annual trip to Bay Cliff and a meal with the campers. The kids love being in the old cars not to mention blowing the horns. A little push gets everyone going if the battery is dead at the end. Thanks everyone for showing up.
Rudy found a woody that had been in long time storage and was able to aquire it and have it running and road worthy for the trip toBay Cliff. He fills us in on a little of the process. It's great to see this one back on the road.
Another good turnout for the July regular meeting at the Cliff's Shaft Museum. Thanks Bill for getting it all arranged.
Greg and John show up with big smiles in Greg's new roadster. A surprise for all of us and the hit of the meeting.
Bob's Uncle Tony enjoys his Model A at the Teal Lake Assisted living barbecue and show in August. Uncle Tony also enjoyed a spin through town with Bob in the 29. He remembers the car well since it was his dad's and Bob's grandpa's car. An enjoyable day with the residents.
Superior A's and many others at the Marquette County Fair Show. Thanks Dick Lutey and Lutey Motors for another great car show and barbecue.
Rudy has that old Danielson station wagon from Negaunee still purring along.
August regular meeting at Norm's garage. We are allowed to use the new one for coffee, snacks and the meeting. Thanks for hosting Norm.
A good showing of Model A's for the August meeting at Norm's. The old barn is a great setting for the picture.
August 28, 2019. Meeting up with the UP North Model A Club from Wisconsin touring through the U.P.
An original Model A taxi was part of the group
We're back at Norm's. A great turnout of Model A's for the September meeting. Thanks again Norm.
A five hundred dollar donation was made to the MAFFI Bus Restortion Project in memory of Paul Wilson Sr. our past MAFFI liaison.
Superior A's at Westwood High School making a donation of $4000 to their auto shop program.
Charlene hands an additional $500 to the instructor for the program in memory of her husband Jim. It's great to see a school offering a program to involve young people in working on cars.
The instuctor gave us a tour of the auto shop as well as the other "trade" classrooms. He explained what was expected of and available for the students in each area. Bob was able to get his "A" inside but it looks like the student vehicles are the priority. An enjoyable and informative visit.
We did have four Model A's show up for the October meeting at the Cliff's Shaft Museum but with snow flurries already in the air, a large number of cars are already in storage. Thoughts have moved on to finding a new winter project.
