Welcome to MAFFI
The Model A Ford Foundation, Inc.
A 501c3 Tax Deductible Educational Charity
Longtime MAFFI Supporter Passes Away in Michigan
by Stan Johnson, former MAFFI President
When I first became aware of the Model A Ford Foundation I quickly realized that then-President Howard Minners had assembled a board of Trustees that looked and acted like champions. When Aldie Johnson, Sam Nixon and Bob Anderson walked into the room you saw that they were big men (all were well over six feet tall), carried themselves like royalty, were expert Model A'ers, and were as pleasant as anyone you will ever meet. All of them donated outstanding vehicles to the Model A Ford Museum, and laid the groundwork for the success of the Foundation. Sadly, all of them are now gone. Aldie Johnson and Sam Nixon passed away several years ago, and now in recent days Bob Anderson has joined them. Bob was the Trustee who supervised the extensive work done by the Foundation at the Benson Ford Research Center. The uncategorized boxes of Model A Ford Mechanical Drawings containing tens of thousands of photographic negatives were examined one by one and recorded in an orderly process that resulted in an index of these drawings. The index is now available to everyone (see: http://www.maffi.org/partsresearch/) and are the basis for many accurate reproduction parts now available for Model A restorations. As the museum took shape Bob Anderson was an avid supporter and donated two beautiful vehicles, a 1929 Phaeton and a 1930 Cabriolet. These vehicles remain in the museum today as a physical tribute to Bob and his lasting Model A legacy.
