Red Stick Model A Ford Club shoots photos for national magazine in Donaldsonville

Bystanders used their phone cameras to snap photos of antique cars as they passed on Mississippi Street Friday morning in Donaldsonville.

The cars were parked in front of the site of the city’s former Ford dealership, a building that dates back about a century.

The Red Stick Model A Ford Club, the Baton Rouge area chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America, rounded up several members and their cars to take photos for the national club magazine. The photos will be featured along with an article on the dealership from yesteryear.

MAFCA is a non-profit and national historical society dedicated to the restoration and preservation of the Model A, a historically significant automobile manufactured by Ford from 1928 through 1931.

After posing for photos in front of the building, the convoy of cars went down Railroad Avenue and parked in front of the Ascension Parish Courthouse. Members then enjoyed lunch at Grapevine Cafe and Gallery.
