A new Hayward exhibit salutes the Model A, one of the best-selling cars in the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Acorn A’s Model A Ford Club of Castro Valley is lending some of its cars to “The Model A Era” exhibit at the Hayward Area Historical Museum of History and Culture. The exhibit opens Saturday and runs through June 19.

The car enthusiast club developed the show.

Three examples of Model A Fords will be displayed, along with interactive exhibits and clothing and jewelry from the era of the popular car. Sales of the Model A, which replaced the Model T, were high until the Great Depression hit.

“Fashions of the Model A Era,” an informal fashion show highlighting the clothing worn then, is planned for May 21. The fashion show starts at 1 p.m. and is included in the price of museum admission.

The museum, at 22380 Foothill Blvd. in Hayward, is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors, and free for historical society members. READ MORE
