Rivet 1967 Rally

Just thinking out loud here...
I know that this can not happen with the WBCCI, so I thought I would throw this out here. I was thinking of trying to put together a informal rally for 1967 trailers in 2007 some where in, say the South Dakota area. (it seems that I am one of the "east" owners)

Not that I do not want to meet other people with other year trailers, but it seems that I have met a lot of 67 owners here on the board and I think it might be a really cool thing to get a bunch of the same year coaches together in one place.

Let me know what y'all think. Do not be afraid to tell me that I am crazy, because you will have to get in line to do it. Please chime in with thoughts about the "do-ability" and maybe other locations (more central to those interested)

Why so specific? Maybe a rally of, say, coaches from '60 to '70 where parking is organized by year of manufacture. That would include alot more folks and there would be alot more to compare to.

Yeah, I would go to SD. That could be my maiden voyage! Would 50's vintage be allowed?

I'm up for it, if things pan out right...it would give us a hard fast date to get it completely done by. Remember '07 is officially just a few months over a year away from now!

I think making it welcome to everyone but primarily focusing on 67's would be great. But then, I own a '67. Us airstreamers are nice people, we wouldn't turn anyone away, right? but I sure want to see some other models in my year in person.

So count us in!!

Cool idea! But maybe have the '67s have a place of honor and focus at center of rally but invite all Airstreams? That could be real cool. Choosing on summer 2007 is smart. 1967 is also my birthyear so maybe I could crash the party.

Of the 47 trailers already signed up for the 2005 Rocky Mountain VAC Rally in Colorado this August, 5 of them are 1967's...

Oh, wow! I wish we could go, but summers are just impossible for us.

Anyway, I would be interest in the SD rally (if it's not in the summer). Even though our rig is also a 67, I'd also support the idea of opening it up to include other years as well!

Count us in!

We should have enough of the GT done by then to make it to SD and back.

She would look cute with a birthday hat cocked rakishly to one side and a big noise maker attatched to her tounge.....

I do agree that other years should be welcome. But of course the birthday trailers would have the choice spots!

Cool, I'm glad to see the input. Yea that was the idea I was kind of going after, a big birthday party kind of thing.

Maybe opening up the years a little, will help. Like I said," just thinking out loud "
I was thinking a smaller type rally with just one year. I am afraid of how hard it would be to put together a "big" rally with 50+ trailers.
Since this seems to be an idea that there is interest in I will look into this a little further.

Possable...
1966-1968 trailers and people with those birth years????
Open to all with a given area for 1967 trailers
I will ponder this more.......
