Members of the Ford Model A Restorers Club held their National Tour in the Triangle from Sunday through Wednesday. The tour was hosted by the local TarWheel A's club of Raleigh and was headquartered at two hotels in Cary.

Each day some of the 140 Model A Fords that traveled to Cary from 15 states, including California and Texas, participated in tours around North Carolina.

On Monday, they took in a drive-in movie in Henderson. Some traveled to Level Cross, to visit Petty Enterprises, and others went to Duke Gardens in Durham.

On Wednesday, more than 70 of the classic Model A Fords traveled to Carthage to visit a museum and to have lunch together.

More than 5 million of the Model A Fords were produced from 1928 to 1931. Collectors believe that more than 250,000 remain today.
