The GraNeva A’s

We have been very active over the summer! We had a wonderful overnight trip to Lake Tahoe and a special tour of the Whittell Mansion. We had four Model A’s in the Constitution Day Parade in Nevada City. Our Model A Day tour to the cities in Nevada and Placer Counties was a great success. And then there was the ‘sort of’ impromptu tour to Colfax to see the fabulous Union Pacific steam Locomotive “844” arrive! Our next big event is the annual Mystery Tour coming up Oct. 13 and 14. Our next meeting is at 7 p.m. on October 25 at Penny’s Diner. For more information about our club, visit
