Sharing a love of cars, especially the Model A Ford, Bob Baker and five friends decided to form a club in summer 1968. They submitted their charter request to the Model A Restorers Club, and the group received a letter dated Aug. 29, 1968, approving the “Chippewa Valley A’s” as a regional chapter of MARC. “Back then, everybody had a Model A in their families,” said Baker, who still owns two — one a 1929 model and the other a 1930 model. “It was a
