Greater Baltimore Model A Ford Club

President Bill Long

Bill is a Mechanical Engineer who spent more than 30 years as a project manager in the power plant industry. He grew up in California but, while employed by Constellation Energy, transferred to Baltimore in 1995 and has been here ever since. Now retired, he is spending a lot of his time restoring a 1929 Roadster Pickup. The truck has been in the family since 1931 when his Great Uncle purchased it and drove it to work for 30 years. It has been off the road for almost 50 years, but restoration is nearing completion and he plans to have it on the road again by the Summer of 2022.

Vice President Dan Riddle

As a lifelong automotive enthuse, I have been fortunate to work in the Automotive Industry as an ASE Certified Technician, a Fleet Manager as well as a Certified Automotive Instructor. While owning a number of "projects" over the years, including Fords and Mopars my current one is a 1966 Chevelle. Even though I don't own a Model 'A' I still have a great interest in the vehicle and it's great heritage.

Secretary Gemma Kuijpers

Gemma grew up in the Netherlands. She moved to the US in 1986 where she started working at NIH and later on at FDA as a pharmacologist. She was always intrigued by the looks of modern cars, until a friend sparked her interest in ancient automobiles when he took her on an 850-mile Lancia Lambda tour from England to Italia in 2011. She decided to get a Model A after seeing two half-restored Model T's parked at a rural gas station in Indiana and joined the GBMAC shortly thereafter in 2019. She is very much looking forward to having an 'A-Ford' at her 1922 home in Old Town Laurel and learn about its inner workings. Gemma is also actively involved in music and plays the violin and the accordion.

Treasurer Hunter Fanney

Hunter has been involved in the Model A hobby for over 20 years. He has a passion for restoring automobiles to their original condition. Hunter frequently participates in the judging of fine point cars at National Meets held by the Model A Restorers Club. His own 1929 Special Coupe has won numerous national awards including the coveted Henry Ford Award. In addition to his Model A related activities, Hunter is actively involved in the restoration and judging of vintage Corvettes. Hunter recently retired as a Senior Research Scientist form the National Institute of Standards and Technology after a 40 year career focused on solar energy and sustainable building practices. He is often accompanied by his wife, Rosa, at Model A events.

Membership Andrew Reymer

Andrew has been a member of the club since late 2017 when he inherited his paternal grandfather's 1930 Ford Model A Roadster. The Roadster was subsequently 'off the road' when Andrew received it and with the tremendous help of many club members was able to get it safely driving again in 2019. Andrew's Model A Ford has been in the family since the early 1950s, was used by his parents in their 1957 Prom, and recently included in a January 2021 photoshoot with Baltimore Weddings Magazine (formerly Baltimore Bride). In addition to sharing this hobby with his family and two young children Andrew is looking forward to adding countless more miles to the odometer. Lastly, if you may have any GBMAFC membership inquires please feel free to contact Andrew.
