Toward the end of a 2400-mile round trip to Vancouver, B.C., several Ford Model A drivers came through Grant Friday on their way home to Wichita, Kan.

Members of the “Wichita A’s” had been to Canada to an International Model A convention.

They spent four weeks on the road in their vintage automobiles that dated between 1929-31. 

“Heavens no!” came the  answer to an inquiry about whether any of the old automobiles had air conditioning. 

The 12 travelers had made the trek north and were heading back to Kansas during the summer’s hot spell. They left Wichita on July 20 to head north.

The Wichita A’s organized in 1981 when two clubs that had been in existence since the sixties combined their membership.
