Not long after that he purchased his first Model A,
a 1929 Tudor Sedan, and also a 1930 Sport Coupe.
He also held the position of Vice President and then
President through the years of belonging to the club.
He loved being a member, we both made a lot of good
friends. It just ended to soon.George passed away June 28th, 2001. Thanks Model A Club for giving him five great years.

  Arnold Loreth

Arnold (Arnie) Loreth passed away on Sunday, December
12, 2010. Arnie served in the US Military during
the Korean War. Following his services he opened his
repair shop, Arnie’s Automotive. He is survived by
his daughters Renee (who would bring Arnie to coffee
at McDonalds), Patricia and his brother Ray, also a
PMAC member. Arnie’s knowledge and collection of
cars was shared with many PMAC members.
Ralph Hilmer

Husband of Carole, father of Aaron, April, and Alison, grandfather and great-grandfather, favorite uncle to 41 nieces and nephews, Marine, Model-A-er, Mason, Christian and friend of many, went to meet the Lord on September 13, 2011. Ralph’s ambition as a youngster was to be a carpenter and he spent his life doing that as a Building Contractor, in Iowa and in Arizona. But tinkering with cars was a favorite past-time.
Ralph always loved old cars but when he got his first Model-A he was “hooked”! Oh, it came in a box (or 2) and it took a while to get it all together. It was that car that got us into Phoenix Model-A Club when Ray Loreth drove by and saw the car body hanging in a tree over the chassis on the ground. And that car was just the first of a number of Model-A’s owned by Ralph and Carole – each with its own story and adventure. And, from then on, everyone knew they could get Ralph a Model-A part or a toy or some accessory, and his eyes would light up.
Ralph had great fun with his Model-A cars, he loved listening to people, and he loved helping whoever needed a hand. He loved the Lord, he loved his family, and he believed that every person could do something to make a difference.
