Who are we?
     The Plain Ol' As are a group of nice folks involved in the preservation and enjoyment
of the Ford Model A automobile.  Membership offers opportunities for you to learn how to
keep your vehicle in good working order, gives you an excuse to get it out on the road, and
you can always just hang around with other people silly enough to own these things!

     For more info about the Plain Ol' As, click on the "About Us" link.  You can also read our latest Newsletter to get an idea of the some the things we like to do.  We're working on getting our Gallery stocked with photos of some of our members and (perhaps more importantly!) their cars.

     We're glad you stopped by ... slide behind the wheel and take our website for a spin!

What's Playing on the Jukebox?
     The music that pops up in the background represent recordings from artists of the Model A era.  Today's very appropriate selection: Apple Blossoms by Joe Venuti's Blue Five (Oct 1929)

This Month in History
October 1, 1896
Beginning in 1903, Henry Ford and his engineers struggled for five difficult years to produce a reliable, inexpensive car for the mass market. It wasn't until their 20th attempt, christened the Model T after the 20th letter in the alphabet, that the fledgling Ford Motor Company hit pay dirt. On this day, the Ford Model T was introduced to the American public, and Ford's affordable revolution had begun. Affectionately known as the "Tin Lizzie," the Model T revolutionized the automotive industry by providing an affordable, reliable car for the average American. Ford was able to keep the price down by retaining control of all raw materials, and by employing revolutionary mass production methods. When it was first introduced, the "Tin Lizzie" cost only $850 and seated two people, and by the time it was discontinued in 1927, nearly 15,000,000 Model Ts had been sold.
