MARC Mileage Awards

The National Model A Restorers Club has a Mileage Awards program to recognize the miles driven by Model A Ford cars owned by the members. The Columbus Region of MARC has a long tradition of driving the Model A for pleasure and this is the primary activity of the club.

To participate, the car must be registered in the program by the owner and a fee of $1 paid. Odometer readings are reported to the National MARC Mileage Awards chairman at the end of each calendar year. A radiator plaque is awarded at the completion of 2000 miles, and a replacement mileage tab is awarded at 5000 miles and at each 5000 miles thereafter. The mileage award stays with the vehicle if it is sold and the new owner continues eligibility with that car.

Jack and Kathryn Sullivan, members of the Columbus Region, have the honor of having driven the most miles in the Mileage Awards program of anyone in the National MARC organization. They have driven their 1929 Roadster over 220,000 miles.

 The total miles driven for all the Columbus MARC members in the Mileage Awards program is now an astounding 1,484,446 miles.
