The Lions Gate Model A Club is a non-profit society dedicated to the preservation, restoration and enjoyment of 1928 to 1931 Model A Ford vehicles. The club is based in Vancouver B.C. and is a chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America.
It includes members from Metro Vancouver, as well as the Sunshine Coast, Vancouver Island and Washington State.
We enjoy monthly meetings, tours, technical seminars, workshops and social get-togethers.
Guests and new members, whether a current Model A owner or not, are always welcomed.
Please contact our president or membership director if you are interested in attending a meeting or joining the club - see Contacts page for phone numbers and e-mail addresses.

What's New

 
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________  

We are trying something different
COVID-19 isn’t letting up and so we can’t yet meet in person as a full group.  But, there are other ways to stay in touch and have meetings.  One of these is by using “Zoom” conferencing. 
Zoom is a free program that works on computers, smart-phones, and even regular telephones. 

This Thursday, November 19th, 2:00 - 3:00 pm we are going to try a Zoom meeting, and we’d like you to join in.

From the comfort of your own home and with your coffee cup by your side, you can be part of this meeting. 
All you need is one of these….

Computer with microphone and speakers – and ideally also a web-camera (but a webcam is not essential)
or
Smart-phone (with built-in camera, microphone, and speakers)
or
Regular push-button house telephone

Instructions are in the November Newsletter - Go to Members Area for a copy, or check your e-mail, as this is open to Club members only
If you have questions, feel free to give Derek a call at 604-671-9840
