Utah Valley Model A Club on the Go

By Howard Eckstein

Driving a Model A Ford is a pleasure, especially when fun activities are involved. During the past year, the Utah Valley Model A Club has driven from Spanish Fork to Manti with an overnight stay. We had a driver training day where owners shared pointers that helped each other operate their cars more safely. A car rally tested everyone’s instruction-following abilities. We had an obstacle course to test drivers’ skills such as a fishing game where the car could not stop and the passenger had to pick up fish with a magnet on a string and take them into a barrel...

Back up and running

News | No comments

Well, while we’ve been running strong as club, our website hasn’t done so well. Our poor little server had to give up the “Magic Smoke”, and died. After the purchase of a new server, I found out that the new server wasn’t compatible with what we wanted. A second older server was purchased. After a lot of work under the hood, and a lot of time donated by Ammon Lee, and Daniel Taualii things got up and running. I owe them a big THANK YOU!. Just like with a Model A a few choice words are said, a little blood, some tears, and some sleepless nights happen, before it will shine. Thanks to all of those that have been a support. Please be patient as we try to rebuild our site.
