I am Mark Hamlin, and I have been elected to be your 2024 Executive Vice President of the Vintage Motor Car Club. My wife Sandra and I have lived in Littleton, Colorado, for 33 years. I’m a native Coloradoan and grew up in Golden. My parents were charter members of the Model A Ford Club of Colorado in the late fifties and early sixties which gave me an early start in the car collector hobby.

Before I was old enough for a driver’s license my dad gave me a 1929 Model A Deluxe Town Sedan. It was in very good original drivable condition and I drove it to high school until I graduated. After graduation I got a job at Golden Restoration doing varied jobs around the shop until I finally landed in the upholstery room. About six years later the company folded so I continued doing upholstery out of the garage of the rented house I lived in. I named my business "The Golden Needle" and continued doing antique and classic automotive upholstery restoration for the next forty five years. I retired in 2019.

Sandy and I joined VMCCA about ten years ago and have enjoyed touring as often as possible. We really like getting together with friends we’ve made and making new ones along the way. I believe I can contribute ideas to help the club stay strong and moving forward. Thank you for the opportunity to do so.
