Pemberville is putting out the red carpet for the Flying Quail Model A Car Club featuring 1920’s -1930’s Model A vintage cars on Sunday, Oct. 15. The group plans to arrive in Downtown Pemberville at approximately 10:15 – 11:15 a.m. They will be parked in the downtown business district and spectators are welcome to view these
vintage beauties. This event is weather permitting.
Highlights of their visit to Pemberville include:
– Pemberville’s Opera House – Located on the second floor of Pemberville’s Town Hall. This theater was once home to Old Medicine/Vaudeville Shows. The ceiling fresco is truly amazing.
– Beeker’s General Store – Unique Gifts, Keepsakes & Candies Galore. One of Ohio’s oldest general stores – over 141 years old! The tin ceiling & wood floor are a must see!
– Riverbank Antiques – Featuring three levels of quality antiques & collectibles. This historic building was once home to the local bank and then in later years the telephone company.
– Pember-Furry House – Pemberville’s oldest frame house built by Pemberville’s founder, James Pember. Completely restored by the Pemberville-Freedom Area Historical Society. A step back in time…
The Flying Quail Model A Club is a social and driving club for Model A owners and admirers from southern Michigan to central Ohio. The Flying Quails are part of the PENN-OHIO Model A Club, that includes other Model A clubs in Ohio and Western Pennsylvania. During trips, the cars travel as a group with “CB radios.”
The Lead Car is responsible for the route and maintaining the speed (usually 47-49mph). The last car or “back door” alerts everyone if someone does not get thru traffic lights or intersections or approaching emergency vehicles, traffic, break downs, etc.
Come out and see these great cars and talk with their owners! It should be a great day to step back in time!
