Members of the Lions Gate Model A Club will take over Port Alberni this week as they have chosen the Alberni Valley and surrounding locales for their 2016 summer tour.
Seven or eight Model As and will be in town, and a few other members will follow in their modern cars, trip organizer Hugh Hunter said.
Model As were the Ford Motor Company’s second most popular car (behind the Model T), built from 1927–31. The first cars off the lot were built in October 1927 but considered a 1928 model.
