Default 31 Model A SW Town Sedan Association

I understand that there exists a Victoria Association.

I also understand that there existed some time ago a Town Sedan Association. I think that I understand it went defunct.

Does anyone have information about this association and is there any interest in trying to restore this association?

Thank you,

Dan Gamble was running it and just ran out of time. I loved it and thought it was worthwhile for the info it generated. I would love to be in it again.

To: 1930 art deco,

How would we go about getting it started again. I would be willing to help, but, I myself have a 31 Town Sedan only 1/2 restored. How does one go about getting getting the town sedan association started?

Thanks,

Are you referring to the "31 Town Sedan Social Group" here on The Ford Barn? Limiting the "Club" to one year and one model may be limiting your membership, especially since most issues can be addressed on this Forum.

I do have a Town Sedan but since it isn't a '31 or a Slant or a 160 I don't qualify for your "Club"...

I belonged to the original Town Sedan club, for a few years, before it was taken over by Dan Gamble. It was great, and they published a very nice, informative newsletter. For a while, you were able to order all of the back issues, which I did. Many had very good info, particular to Town Sedans. Dan Gamble and his wife took it over, and he was very inspired and excited, but he was younger and still working, and I think it finally overwhelmed him. Not sure if they saved anything that was part of the club.....a white pages search might locate him for queries.

I was a member and saw him at the MARC meet in Niagara Falls where there was a meeting of the club that I attended. Not long after that, he wrote and said that he could no longer continue the club. I suspect he would love for someone to take it over. I will PM his mailing address. The club e-mail was townsedanclub@hotmail.com

I'd be willing to scan them in PDF format for future use.

Looks like a lot of people would want to join, but we are lacking someone,or a team, to actually produce the content and keep it all running. I can only guess that it is a lot of work to keep it all going. And hats off to the previous people that were running it.
