Who is ready for Model A Day
September 15-16th, 2023?
Model A Day MAD is always the third Saturday in September. This year's Model A Day festivities will be held September 15-16th at the Model A Ford Museum on the Gilmore Car Museum campus in Hickory Corners, Michigan.
Our theme this year is open cars.
Bring your roadsters, roadster trucks, cabriolets, phaetons and 400As to show off.
|There will be a special gate for Model A parking. It will be located on Hickory Road. Please enter there and someone will guide you onto the Gilmore grounds and to the Model A parking area.||'A' Parking|
|We are having another two day event with a swap meet both days. Please contact Mark Maron at 847-302-7900 or A7191mark@gmail.com for any questions or to secure your swap space.||Swap|
After noon we will have "Ride the A's" where you will get your chance to
take a spin around the Gilmore campus in a Model A and our AA Stakebed truck - maybe even the Model A School Bus.
You will have the opportunity to participate in the Model A Driving Experience. This is a classroom, as well as a hands on, driving school. The class will run from 1PM to 4PM. The cost is $100 per person and you must preregister online for this class.
We will be doing a First Start for a car that has not been started in decades. That will be at 2PM and is always a fun event.
There will be a Special Event on Friday evening at the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary with a catered dinner and the ability to tour the Kellogg Manor House. Dinner and admission to the Bird Sanctuary and Manor House will be $45 per person and you must preregister online.
There will be a Fashion Seminar, a technical seminar on the ABC's of the Model A
engine, Road-trip 101 and we will have a special guest talking about the Great Race.
Please see the schedule for times.
The cost for each seminar is $5 and will be
collected at the door, on the day of the event.
All day we will have "Ride the A's" where you will get your chance to take a spin around the Gilmore campus in a Model A and our AA Stakebed truck - maybe even the Model A School Bus.
MAFFI will have a sales table with merchandise for sale, but this year we are asking you to go online and preorder your t-shirts. We want to be certain to have your size ready for you at the event. Event pins may be preordered as well.
As always, our annual meeting will be held under the big tent at the Gilmore at 2:30. After the meeting the Gilmore will keep their diner open for you to grab a bite before you head home or back to the hotel.
