First Indoor Meeting - Pizza Party and Guest Speaker on Model A Bus

How many of you are familiar with the 1931 Model A Bus?  What you did not know was Henry Ford built a bus. Yup, he did.

Ken Ehrenhofer has purchased and donated such a vehicle to the Model A Ford Foundation Inc. and they will be using it at the Gilmore Museum, not for display, but for giving rides to visitors at the Museum during the summer months.  The Model A bus he purchased is in rough condition and Ken is going to restore it prior to sending it to Gilmore. He has been invited, and will be attending, our club’s pizza party November 10th, 2019 to give us a power point presentation about his efforts.  His dream is to restore this vehicle for generations to enjoy. This is a very rare vehicle and if you are interested in making a donation to support the restoration of this great historical vehicle you are welcome to do so by participating in the raffle or via an individual contribution.

In this effort, his organization is raffling off two airline tickets to visit the Jay Leno Automobile Collection. The drawing will be held on Saturday, November 16th, 2019 at the Model A Ford Museum at the Gilmore.  Tickets are $25.00 each and will be sold thru volunteers or by calling the MARC office. Tickets will also be available at many events such as the Iola Old Car Festival.  If you want to purchase tickets prior to the November indoor meeting, please feel free to contact Ken at 630-697-3906 or email him at kehrenhofer@msn.com.  Tickets will also be available at our pizza party.

Come and enjoy pizza, comradery and learn about Henry’s bus.  See you then.
