Road Rally turned Hobble Creek Tour

Images | No comments

With only two participants in our second annual road rally, Brimley’s took first and the Macks took an extremely close second. Actually, we did not feel that just showing up was challenging enough, nor did it merit an award so we decided to reschedule the rally for another day. Instead we took to the road and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of Hobble Creek Canyon’s right fork. After taking in the scenery and posing for a few pictures, we made our way to Sonic for some good food. We all had fun, but greatly missed the attendance of the rest of the club.

Due to short notice, were only able to get a couple of cars to the Salem Days show. Butch Scott and the Mack’s brought their cars while the Thompson’s and Cope’s (sans Model A’s) also made it out to support the club. The Mack’s received sponsors choice from O’Reilly Auto Parts and are excited to join the ranks of award winning Model A’s for the 2014 summer. Show organizers expressed interest in the club and highly encourage us to attend next year.

Model T, A and B Reunion – Hill Climb 2014

Images | No comments

The Utah Valley Model A Club attended the second annual Model T, A and B hill climb hosted at the RW Erickson Foundation Museum during the annual Antique Power Show. When we first arrived we found the hill climb already in progress, so we set up our chairs and joined in cheering on our only Model A participant — Clyde. Each round saw improvements in his time. He whittled it down from 15.847 (30.14 mph) to 15.55 with a top speed of 30.82 mph on the 1/10 mile hill climb. Not bad for a completely stock car.

The cars varied from a Model T Huckster to a highly modified speedster who clocked 85 mph at the finish line.

After the competition, we split up and visited the various buildings and displays. Erickson has separate buildings for trucks, planes, cars, tractors, motorcycles etc...

Progressive Dinner

Images | No comments

This month we had our first annual progressive dinner. We spent the evening cruising around Utah county hitting different club members houses for various courses of the meal. We had so much food at each stop we could have easily fed 100 people! As a kid my mother always told me, “don’t be ungrateful, eat everything on your plate, there are starving kids in Africa.” Naturally we did not want the food to go to waste so I sent it to my waist instead. I’ve come to the conclusion that if you have a goal to lose weight, don’t join a Model A club!

We started our food extravaganza at Tim and Syd Crocketts home under the shade of an old apple tree, complete with wind chimes and a gurgling fountain. Greg passed out menus to get us started. Then we enjoyed appetizers galore...

Our first annual Pioneer Potluck. We had a wonderful time full of car games, good food, and great company. The penny races where intense, well as intense as they can be at 10 mph. The Balloon toss we very welcome with hot weather. The bullseye competition was very entertaining as very few of us got even close to the bullseye.
