I just joined the VAC a couple of weeks ago not really expecting anything. Figured I'd just throw some money that way to kinda lend some sort of support and that would be that. In no time flat I get this nice letter welcoming me, a really cool looking sticker and one of the best newsletters I've ever read! I read that newsletter cover to cover in one night and my dear wife read most of it too. For the first time in a long time I feel like I'm going to be getting a lot more than my money's worth! Thank you.

I will second the recommendation the Vintage Advantage is worth the price of admission alone. Especially if you are at all interested in some of the lesser known tidbits of Airstream History, as well as letters and articles from Caravans back in their golden days.

Hello everyone,
Just a reminder, deadline for all announcements, letters, articles, photos, etc. that you might want included in the June issue of The Vintage Advantage newsletter must be to me by May 20th! That's only 12 days from now, so don't procrastinate. Send submissions off-line to the E-mail address below.

Best regards,

Forrest, I just got back the Bass Lake Randezvous, what a blast. The nicest group of people in WBCCI in my opinion. It's good to remind everyone that you don't need to have a Vintage Airstream to be a member of the Vintage Airstream Club. When I joined I had just purchased a 2006 Safari, when I met some Vintage members they told me if I wanted to join, I just needed a vintage mindset. No problem. Join the Vintage Airstream club and go to a rally, you will have a ball.

Even if you can't attend a VAC rally, and even if you're not vintage, the VAC newsletter is worth the subscription price. I really soak up all the vintage articles and I love the page "from the VAC library" with the old Globetrotting with Wally Byam column. For me, getting the Vintage Advantage is like getting a family geneaology newsletter for my '06 Bambi. Very nice.

I also enjoy the VAC President's (Ed's) perspective in the opening pages of the newsetter. And Forrest does a great job as Editor, keeping it all balanced, allowing "much needed debate and discussion" on WBCCI issues. Excellent job, Forrest! Both Forrest and Ed write thoughtfully on WBCCI and VAC; they're not afraid to face the hard issues.

I highly recommend VAC for anyone enthusiastic about Airstreams, new or old.

-Jamie

Well, I finally got my own copy of The Vintage Advantage in the mail today. It only took the USPS 12 days and I live within about 10 miles of the bulk mail center. My brother-in-law works for the USPS and tells me conditions have deteriorated badly, with staff being required to work 12 to 16 hour days. He says they have now adopted the attitude that mail will get delivered whenever they get around to it.
