(LE MARS)–Le Mars was the destination today (Friday) for vintage wheels.

Joe Lamb of the Central Iowa Model A Ford Club said the group makes four-day, 400 mile trips known as the “Great Annual Model A Ride Around Iowa.” They’ve traveled for 15 years and this year’s trip was to northwest Iowa with stops in Ida Grove, Le Mars and Sioux City.
