Car lovers may have spotted a stream of classic Model A Fords on South Burnett roads over the past few days.
Seventeen members of the Model A Ford Club of Queensland did a club run to Kingaroy at the weekend for an overnight getaway.
On Sunday, they were the guests of the South Burnett Antique Motor Club which put on a barbecue lunch at their clubhouse for the visitors.
Many guests then stayed at the Oasis Motel on Sunday night.
On Monday morning, the visitors dropped in to Huston’s Ford to display their vehicles as well as check out the latest offerings from the American marque.
They then went to ‘Bethany’ for morning tea before wending their way back home.
The Model A Ford was released in Australia on May 17, 1928, and an estimated 31,000 were sold in the country.
Internationally, they were manufactured from 1927 to 1931 with more than 4.8 million produced in body styles including tudors, fordors, town cars, roadsters and utes.
