Welcome . . . It's About Speedster People & Neat Things They Do
The Society's (S.O.S.S.) goal is to save the history of "Ford Speed and Sport" as it was in the old days of Ford Model "A", "B" & "T" driving, cross country touring, hill climbs and racing of all types; 1909 through 1934 and onto today. Our members take great pride in their collections and restorations of rare speed equipment, Speedsters and cars that raced or cruised the landscape of this world. We are truly international in scope. Winner of numerous Golden Quill awards for editorial, photography and design.  

Our prime educational tool is our official Journal, Secrets, Vintage Speed & Sport, Magazine (tm). Published quarterly, with 52 glossy color pages packed with facts, figures, drawings and photographs. We tell the stories of our membership, past advertising, new products and events about speedsters, hill climbs, open wheeled racers, cross country touring and performance for Model T and A and B Fords 1909 to 1934. Members get unlimited rights to advertise non-commercial items in the Classified Ads and discounts on speed parts and accessories.
The Secrets Of Speed Society is a 100% volunteer not for profit club.

Members are to pay their dues on time and help keep our community informed by submitting ideas, articles, photos and other interesting materials to be published in Secrets Magazine.
