Our club is really Three Clubs in One

Model A Restorers Club

Often referred to as MARC, Model A Restorers Club was started in 1952 in California. Many of our members belong to this national club of which we are recognized as the CENTRAL IOWA REGION. We use many of their resources and guidelines for restoring our cars. Learn more about this club and the benefits of of being a National Club Member.

Central Iowa Model A Club

Our local club was started in 1961 by Bob Darr. Bob sent letters to Model A Owners in Iowa inviting them along with their families and friends to attend the first meeting at the Water Works Park in Des Moines. The original meeting was a great success. Our club continues its history here in Central Iowa. Read more about our clubs history, and the Model A History. Did you know Des Moines had a Model A Ford Factory were some of our cars may have been produced? Hit the tab button to read more about our club.

Model A Restorers Club of America

This club often referred to as MAFCA, Model A Ford Club of America was started in 1955 in California also. Having a different view point on some issues, it is another great National Club of which our club is referred to as an Iowa Chapter of Model A Ford Club of America. Also a great National Club to belong too. .

We Are in the process of building our new website

Let me introduce myself. My name is Ron Huntimer, the new Director of Publications and your New Webmaster. I am taking over the job that was held by Mike Youngblood for many years.

I had originally told the Board that I would have the new site up and running by January 1, 2023.  No, it did not go as planned. Yes, it has taken a lot longer than I anticipated. I spent most of December getting the Domain and ownership changed and switching to a  completely new web hosting company called “Green Geeks”.   I have been working with my wife Kay to design a new format for the newsletter. She will be your new Newsletter Editor.   We both hope you are going to enjoy what we are planning and getting underway. 

I also discovered that my computer and my web building skills had more rust then my two Model As.  So a new computer, new software, and learning to use WordPress has kept me quite busy. You will see the results with great photos, graphics, videos, and cool things. This home page is sporting a lot of these new skills and hard work.

As you read and discover many new things about the website, be assured that the site is not completely finished. Many pages and links are not finished. But, look, read, and watch how the site grows and continues to change over time. Enjoy!      

Activities for Every Member






The club in 2023 is arranging many tours, from one-day tours in the Des Moines Metro area, 2- 3-day weekend tours, and even week-long tours.
