You may think the car you're driving is about as antique as they come - but you might change your mind this week when you'll have a chance to view 1,500 Model A Fords converging in parade formation on the capital, as the Model A Ford Club of America welcomes its international convention to town and marks the 50th anniversary of the Model A's original production. If you miss this spectacle, you can stop by the club's car show and see for yourself some examples of this classic automobile - many still maintained in blue-ribbon, mint condition. You can also rummage through antique auto parts, among other flea market items, and, for those who still yearn for the days of the convertible top and rumble seat, they'll be raffling off a 1928 Model A roadster, equipped with both.
