Santa Clara Valley Chapter Model A Ford Club of America
The Santa Clara Valley Chapter has been a member of the Model A Ford Club of America (MAFCA) since 1960.The Santa Clara Valley Chapter serves as a medium for the exchange of ideas, information and parts for the Model A Ford car. In addition the club aids its members in their efforts to restore, preserve, and maintain the car in its original likeness. This club exercises general supervision, direction, control, and assistance to its members in their restoration processes.
Did you know the Ford Model A also colloquially called the A-Model Ford or the A, and A-bone among rodders and customizers) was the second huge success for the Ford Motor Company, after its predecessor, the Model T. First produced on October 20, 1927, but not sold until December 2, it replaced the venerable Model T, which had been produced for 18 years. This new Model A (a previous model had used the name in 1903–04) was designated a 1928 model and was available in four standard colors. ThFor more information visit http://www.scvcma.org/
Hear how Kim came up with the idea for Saratoga Eats:
“After the success of the Sam’s Chowder Mobile events, I thought about growing this concept in a much larger way. Movable Feasts seemed get crowds of people wherever the setup. I thought, what about hosting an event on a weekend and inviting 8 trucks line up and invite the community to come in and mingle. So in June of 2013 Saratoga Eats came to life.
Having people hang out and have a great time was the goal while raising money for the Intero Foundation. Seating for 300 with canopies to provide shade, 8 Trucks, 1 DJ and Beer and Wine being sold. I advertised the heck out of the event in local papers and with mailings and I was not sure how many people would show up.
All I can say is Wow! – I was so pleased to have over 800 people drop by, order food and hang out. Each of the trucks donated 10% of their sales for the event, I matched that in addition to underwriting the beer and wine so all the beverage sales went directly to the Intero Foundation. Since the inception of the inaugural Saratoga Eats, we have had 2 events each summer.
August of 2016 was our largest turn out ever. 12 Trucks with food sales totaling over $21,000, Face painting, Balloon twisting, dancing – Our estimate was over 1,200 people over the course of 4 hours – WOW.”
Next summer, we’ve got two Saratoga Eats events coming up. Make sure to check our Facebook page for updates on Saratoga Eats throughout the year!
