Charter Oak and Happy Honkers

Boy, have the Happy Honkers and Charter Oak Model A Clubs been busy in March. Early on we enjoyed an impromptu Tour up Dry Creek Road, near Woodlake, to see the most beautiful display of Wildflowers I think I’ve ever seen. We drove the length of Dry Creek Rd up to Mountain House Inn for hamburgers and deserts.
The above took place on St. Patricks Day, March 17th, but the day before we participated in Visalia’s St. Paddy’s Day Parade with the Horseless Carriage Club. Lots of fun!

The last three days in March were dedicated to our Merced CCRG Jamboree where a lot of Model A’ers gather (about 100 cars) to take Tours to local historical sites or places of interest.  About 10 Cars in our 2 Clubs participated in the caravan up 99 Highway to Merced. While we were there our two Clubs joined in a fun Tour to “The Ghost Town of  Hornitos, CA”.

Looking forward we are going to be just about as busy in April as Charter Oaks Vice President and Tour Coordinator, Jason Deisman, has arranged an exciting Tour (April 6th) to “Tim and Kathy McMaster’s  Hanford Auto”, a car building shop. And then of course while in Hanford we can’t miss those great Ice Cream treats at Superior Dairy.

Then we are attending The California Antique Farm Equipment Show, April 12-14th as we will have a dozen or so Model A’s on display and parading in the Big Antique Show Parade on Saturday March 13th and Sunday the 14th.
Both of these Clubs invite all who enjoy the wild hobby of Model A’ing to come out to our meetings. Check out the Club’s Newsletters in this issue for times and locations.
