1750 cars were made from 1903 through 1904, and sold for a base price of $750.00
Come and celebrate "International Model A Day" at WAAAM Air and Auto museum.
There is nothing like seeing these old cars in motion and to see where automobiles first started, and to see how far we have come in the automobile industry.
So, bring your "Model A" out for a beautiful fall drive and share the joy of antique car ownership with the world.
