Central Iowa Model A Club History

Founded in 1961

Bob Darr started the club in 1961 after sending letters to other Model A owners in the Central Iowa area.  The response was very good so he sent the following letter to interested Model A'ers inviting them along with their families and friends to attend the first meeting at the Water Works Park in Des Moines, Iowa.  Bob arranged everything including a prize of Ford Script Model A Running Board Steps.  The local Radio and News Papers were alerted.  Here is that original letter of invitation:

The original meeting was a great success and in those early years there were many events where the Model A club members got together to enjoy the cars, the learning experiences and the social activities.  Some other pictures from back in the day are shown here including the News Paper Article announcing the club's officers in 1961:
