Model A Fords cruise through the past amid splendor of Mill Creek Park

As Model A Fords traveled the roads and filled the parking lot of Fellows Riverside Gardens, Mill Creek Park seemed to return to a bygone era.

The owners of about 55 of the cars showed up at the park Sunday for the Penn-Ohio Model A Ford Club’s annual banquet. A group of about 20 toured the park.

The cars are fun to drive, said Don Harvey, of Waterford, Pa. Driving them, he said, takes him back to a time before cars were as mechanized.

Model As have standard transmissions.

“Automatics weren’t invented yet, power steering wasn’t invented yet,” he added.

Harvey’s “traveling car” is a 1929 Model A Ford that he’s owned for 26 years. He also owns a Roadster and previously owned a 1929 pick-up truck.

He’s been a member of the club’s Erie chapter for 24 years.

The Penn-Ohio club consists of 12 chapters. Each holds monthly meetings for members. The chapters take turns hosting the whole club.
