A model event

In August, members of the local Ford Model A Club celebrated the model’s birth when some 30 examples met at the Engen 1-Stop on the N1 from where they were driven in convoy to FMM for a motoring picnic. The car was launched in 1928 and by February 1929 had already achieved over a million sales. FMM joined in the activity with Wayne Harley, Lorenzo Farella, Donny Tarentaal and Wentsley Wicomb taking part with the museum’s 1928 Phaeton, 1930 2-door Coupé, 1930 Roadster and 1931 Roadster, while the 1930 Pick-up and 1931 Victoria were brought out and put on display, altogether a great tribute to one of motoring history’s iconic cars.
