For at least the last 18-20 years, the local chapter of the Model A Restorers Club has held their annual Start-Up Party. It was started by the late Terry Oberer ("Mr. Model A" in St. Louis for decades) and held at his home in Byrnes Mill. After his death, it moved to a location in St. Louis County.
Every year, they choose a car that hasn't run in years and get it running. Many years, they have been true basket cases. This year, it looks like is wasn't that big a challenge, but it still takes some work. Here is a video that was posted on Facebook:
Neat video, thanks Dick!
Mark, I was a member of the local Model A club for many years. Good bunch of people. I dropped my membership when I started cutting back on expenditures. The Startup Party was always a great event.
