  • Alaskan A's trip to Kodiak Island

    The Alaskan A's sponsored a trip to Kodiak Island last week. Three clubs participated - The Alaskan A's, The Antique Auto Mushers of Alaska, and The Vernon Nash Antique Car Club of Fairbanks. We had about 22 cars from all over the state (7 Model A's) and 42 people that participated. My vehicle logged 600 miles. Some were more, some were less, depending on where they started from. It was a fun filled week with 2 ferry rides (of 10+ hours each), a trip to the Pacific Spaceport, and a tour and car show at the US Coast Guard facility. Here are some random shots of our week, not in any specific order.

        Yes, that is Curly. Just pointing out the pot-holes in the road. Actually, that was one of the better roads we were on.

        And of particular interest, in the last picture, the first 3 cars are all VFF members. The blue Tudor belongs to Jim (Jfreddie), followed by my pickup, then Curly's pickup.

          Your Longest Road Trip?
          by Apple Green Wheels Rule
          What has been your longest road trip, how many days and how many miles per day? This I'm sure will vary due to age and derriere. One couple in our club drive has driven all over the country from state to state. What's your longest trip?...

          Long distance tour
          by WMWS
          Does anyone know if there is a group going on a long distance tour. Like across the country or to Alaska. Maybe one of the clubs that you could join. 5 to 10 cars would be just right. It would take some organizing with logistics, parts and at least one or two good mechanics. Does anyone else think that sounds fun?

          International Model A Ford Day in Alaska
          by CarlG
          We had 11 cars in Anchorage and 5 in Fairbanks that showed up as a group for IMAFD Celebrations.

          The Anchorage group assembled at the Sears Mall for a brief 1 hour car show, followed by a tour of downtown. It was amazing to see all the cameras come out of nowhere to take our pictures as we drove down the streets. Then we headed out to Pt. Woronzof for a picture shoot, to City Diner for...

          Where is your clubs big tour this season?
          by Curly
          Our Alaskan A’s just returned from a week long trip to Kodiak, Alaska. We had about 20 vintage cars half were Model A’s. The ferry ride was a nine hour ferry each way. The cars were enclosed in the belly of the ship the whole way.
          The folks in Kodiak were so appreciative and they really rolled out the red carpet for us. One member lost a main bearing on the way but his son had him another...
