Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for the 50th Annual Model A Ford Texas Tour


What does the registration fee cover?

This is the 50th Annual Model A Ford Texas Tour and many requests were received indicating that we should really make this a golden milestone celebration. The registration fee covers the Welcome Party, the Hubley Races, the Seminars, the Ladies and Gentlemen’s Era Fashions Awards Tea, Friday Night Entertainment, Grand Tour with Lunch, the Car Games, and the Saturday Awards Banquet. The registration fee covers four meals per person, two of which will be in the ballroom of the host hotel.

What about the meals?

The Friday’s Ladies and Gentlemen’s Era Fashions Awards Tea and Saturday’s Awards Banquet will be in the ballroom at the host hotel with plenty of room for all. With a top notch chef, the menu has been planned with all of our friends in mind. Because our food will be served by waiters, we can relax and enjoy. It will truly be a wonderful dining experience. The Welcome Party will be a tasty buffet and of course there is the Lunch on the Grand Tour.

What about the host hotel?

The host hotel is the award winning Austin Marriott North in Round Rock which is centrally located in Texas. The hotel has 291 spacious rooms and we have negotiated a very competitive rate for the area. The hotel’s meeting rooms and ballroom are big enough to have many of our events on site for your convenience. You will see that the Marriott is a beautiful hotel with many amenities.

Where is Round Rock?

Round Rock is located between Georgetown and Austin in the central Texas hill country. There are numerous back roads that are appropriate for Model A’s plus all the major highways in the area have free frontage roads. (Google Map.) It is the 31st largest city in Texas and one of the fastest growing cities in the nation, yet it maintains a high quality of life. Money Magazine named Round Rock the 7th “Best Places to Live” in 2008 and 3rd in a list of “Where the Jobs Are” in 2012. Between Dell computers and the Round Rock Express, there is plenty of work and fun in Round Rock, Texas.
