You may have already seen or heard them around town. Cars from a different era moving slow and steady. Its owners honking horns that emit a distinct sound.
On Thursday afternoon, dozens of Model "A' Ford vehicles, kept pristine by their owners, made their way into J.F. Gregory Park to the City Center where they gathered for the first of a four-day membership meeting of the Model A Restorers Club (MARC).
It's appropriate that this group meets in Richmond Hill, a former home of Henry Ford. The Model 'A' vehicles were produced by Ford between 1927-1931.
Although it's a private membership meeting that will attract hundreds, local residents will get many chances to see the vehicles up close, as the members park their cars at the City Center before making their way around town for other events, such as the Cars and Coffee, Saturday morning from 9 to 11 at the Richmond Hill History Museum.
