WELCOME to the website of Huronia Wire Wheel, a chapter of Model A Owners of Canada Inc. (modelaowners.com). We are an active car club of Model "A" Ford enthusiasts dedicated to the preservation, restoration and driving enjoyment of these automobiles. We meet monthly (with some exceptions) in Tottenham, Ontario. Our meetings include tech talks, seminars, and general topic guest speakers. Women play an active role in this chapter and are encouraged to attend.
Our meetings take place at 7:30 PM in the Tottenham Fire Hall at 44 Mill St. E. (4th Line), Tottenham, Ontario on the second Wednesday of the month from September to May (with the exception of December and February). We do NOT have meetings in June, July or August.

TRIBUTE TO A FORMER MODEL A MEMBER
On May 25, 2019 Dreamfields Park in Bradford was renamed Ron Simpson Memorial Park to honour the late Ron Simpson. Ron was recognized for decades of community involvement. (More info on bradfordtoday.ca or on simcoe.com) He was an avid Model A'er and his Model A was in attendance at the dedication along with his wife Joan, daughter Jodi and granddaughter Elizabeth. What a great tribute!
HURONIA WIRE WHEEL CHAPTER HISTORY
In the Fall of 1998, the Model A Owners of Canada had two Chapters, the Southern Ontario Chapter and the newly formed Trillium Chapter. A group of Model A owners around the Tottenham area said “Why not us?”
On Wednesday, November 4th, 37 Model A Owners met in the Tottenham United Church to determine if a new Chapter was possible. A positive response led us to apply for Chapter status with not yet a name for the proposed Chapter. Several names were proposed and votes were solicited by ballot. A write-in suggestion of Huronia Wire Wheel Chapter was selected. It told where we are and who we are. An executive was chosen for the coming year. President Jim Campbell; Vice President, Carol Johnston; Treasurer, Susan Leybourne; Secretary, Josie Campbell and Membership Wes Leybourne.
