We need to give Ken J., all of the presenters, helpers, and the organizing committee a big THANKS for a job well done on the rally! Another 4CU rally that will probably become an annual event.

Now where do I find a unit for restoration and talk the wife into getting it???

Vintage Restoration Rally photos

Posting a photo or two on Airforums is quick and easy but after awile they get buried by new posts.
I have created a shared album at Sharpcast.com and linked it to the fourcorners.wbcci.net web page.
Please add your Restoration Rally photos here to have them all in one place.

The group shot above, with matching uniforms, looks like an Airstream chain gang.

Does anyone know how I can get in touch with Luke? Got any axle question for him.

Just got back myself

This rally FAR FAR exceeded my expectations - thank you all who participated - you made it a very special experience for all. And a big thank you goes to Jackie Lange who but together an incredible workbook with great restoration tips and instruction. Also thank-you to the great food committee that kept us all fed and watered. And last but not least THANK YOU to our sponsors - Vintage Trailer Supply, Dexter, Camping World, Lew Farber (AKA our very own Lewster) and our old friend on the forums, Ken Levan.

When we first came up with the idea for this rally, we thought it would be good and I remember when we first talked to the campground about bringing all our tools and told them we were going to make noise, I really was not sure how this would turn out - I'm here to tell you it was unreal - the amount of time that presenters put into their presentations and the hands on experience that everyone got was just incredible - as rallies go it will be very difficult to top this one - the presenters, attendees, sponsors and the stars really aligned, but I promise that now that we have one under our belt, next years will be even better - YES! this is now an annual 4cu event - so mark your calanders for the last weekend in April for an even better event!

I too had a great time at the rally. For my first rally I truly learned alot, probably the most important thing I learned is that the project is not really as daunting as it may first appear. Thanks to Ken and all the presenters and a special thanks to Mrs. Lumatic for keeping an eye on my "child prodigies" while I attended the classes. It was really great to feel at ease.

When I got home I found out that although I didn't leave my heart in Albuquerqe, I did leave part of my A/S there. Seems that I used to have a cover over my front vent that would allow for it to be open while driving. Mine I believe is somewhere on I40 in N.M. Oh well, I was gonna take it off anyway. Again, thanks for a great weekend and see you at the next rally.

I'd really love to attend next year's event, and am hoping I'll have an Airstream to bring to it by then.

Ken J's and Uwe's threads were the first two restoration threads I read on this forum when I joined a few months ago, and I think it's great that the attendees of this rally were able to see both of these rigs in person-- I'm quite envious really. In fact, I think it's probably these two posters and their restorations that have me so fixated on the Overlander as my favorite model of choice.

Anyway, it sounds like a fantastic event, and I'm hoping to make it next year, vintage rig in tow.

One Great Rally!

Truly a superb rally. Thanks to all of the team that put this together. All of the presenters were great and so incredibly helpful all the time.

I was fortunate enough to get a new intellipower installed by Zep. Thanks.

(Should I tell him first about the little bitty difficulty I am having with it?)

A few non demo/presenting moments here...

Pot luck dinner and margi night at my place....

It was wonderful meeting all of you!

Ken, kudos to you and the food commitee for organizing and pulling off such a great event.

Hope to see everyone soon.

super info / super people

Arrived home last night from the rally. What a wonderful and knowledgeable group of people! I have been truly amazed at how individuals on this forum are willing to help others. This rally reiterated to me just how great the airstream community really is. Big thanks to Ken J and all the other organizers and the presenters. You really put a lot of work into making this an exceptional rally. The participants at this rally really had a broad dept of information and were willing to pass it on to those less enlightened (like me). Though I'm not a member of the four corners unit, if this is an annual event I would love to come again. Hopefully with my airstream in tow next time!! Ed

We would like to also extend a special thanks to the presenters for this event. We were completely blown away by the passion and the amount of preparation that you all put into making your presentations and demonstrations. We found them to be very informative and unbelievably thorough. A special thanks to Matt for helping us fix the ever alusive galley fan in our AS. It now works and we appreciate you taking the time to give us a hand.

I too would like to thank everyone who made me feel like one of the family. This was my first trip with my Gt and first rally. My wife Susanne (with a S) also had a wonderful time. It gives me new energy to install an interior and not have to stay in the Aluminum Tent.

Yes, many many thanks to Flordemayo for being a weekend Grandma to my kiddos, too!

It was great meeting you and your boys, Jerry -- Zoe sends hugs and kisses to them both and wants to know how soon she can see them again.

Thanks so much for all your help and advice. And I can't wait to see the interior of the GT when you're finished, with all that gorgeous veneer and silver rivets!
