2006 International -- some vintage photos

Without too much comment (who'd want to compete with 2Air?), here's a few photos from the vintage section. I would be remiss if I didn't start with the vintagest vintage, 1935...

and here's Maxwell from my own Denver unit! Too bad everyone was off doing habitat while I was cruising the silver bullets.

I met an Annapolis grad ('73) who had forgotten the honor code and proceeded to convince me he had towed his Airstream with his Mini... (insert large fish hook in cheek and tug)...

but his incredibly efficient boondocking was impressive. All systems are engineered for maximum boondocking efficiency--LED lights, no propane except for outside cooking and many others. He achieves something like 2 weeks out at a time. Maybe we will get a post on the real data at which my memory fails...

wonderful rarities (to me, anyway), like rectangular vents and a row of windows

and, of course, many things I couldn't fathom, like this Caravel that looks like mine but is a rear kitchen, mid-bath (at least that's what I impute from the outside access door configuration)

maybe more and better from Montana in 2008. July in Georgia--hmmm, hot and buggy! I bolted out of Florida for the same reason.

hi led
sorry we didn't meet in salem....
i'll be at the denver vintage rally in crede.....will you?
of course i'm not IN the rally,
but i'll be in the same campground that week,
so i can tour the vintage units and meet folks...

your pics are very nice....
in the first pic, right next to the '35.....
is bill kerfoots unit, which he towed with a 70s lincoln conti....

not all the vintage or unusual units were in the vintage section...
many were scattered throughtout the compound...
several nice argosys.....
some very nice classic mohos over on the asphalt..
a squarestream was west of the wb post office.....
a nicely and highly polished wide body....looked great....
and so on.....

some how the organizers.....
arranged for the tank flush troop,
to service the vintage section....
on the same day and at the same time,
as the vintage open house...
since the wind was pretty calm that day,
the flushing gave new meaning to the terms...
vintage and tankless....

as the breeze picked up,
i tried to arrange my touring,
to be up-wind....2air' only goes so far to look at airstreams!
