VAC/FCU New Mexico Rt 66 Rally

SECOND ANNUAL VINTAGE AIRSTEAM CLUB NEW MEXICO ROUTE 66 RALLY

GET YOUR KICKS ON ROUTE 66!

The Vintage Airstream Club and the The Four Corners Unit is teaming up to join the New Mexico Route 66 Association for a great time in July.

July 21st – 24th is the date – be there or be square…

This is a “traveling” rally. We will start in Tucumcari NM KOA on Thursday night, tour the city on Friday – the city of murals and great art-deco architecture and watch all the vintage cars come into town as they prepare to ride across New Mexico on Route 66. Then on Saturday morning we will all take off for Albuquerque and tour the various towns, sites and history that this highway is so famous for. We will stay at Enchanted Trails RV park – on old route 66 trading post – and join the “neon tour” on Saturday night downtown Albuquerque where there will be tons of old cars, food, music and more. The city is planning to close off a several block area for this event. Or if you prefer not to drive downtown, we will have our own “drive in” big screen movie at the campground.

Then on Sunday we will continue this journey to Gallup New Mexico where we will stay at the USA RV park and depart Monday morning after driving down memory lane.

You will receive a nice tour guide (and some other goodies) that will describe interesting places to see and historical information along the route. You can travel together with others, or you can go your own pace during the day. Relax and enjoy the ride!

Several towns will be entertaining us along the route – various activities such as BBQ’s and other events will be going on that are in the planning stages.

And… Don’t forget the great photo opportunities!

So how do you sign up? Glad you asked…..

Cost is only $35.00 for the rally

You can get the sign up sheet by emailing us at fourcournersunit@hotmail.com .

You will need to make reservations at any or all of the following – these campgrounds are giving us special rates – be sure to tell them you are with the New Mexico Route 66 Rally.

Thursday Friday – KOA, Tucumcari, NM (575) 461-1841 - $36.00/night (ask for Cindy)
Saturday – Enchanted Trails RV Park and Trading Post, Albuquerque, NM – (505) 831-6317 – our favorite Airstream park $15/night (ask for Vicki)
Sunday – USA RV Park, Gallup, NM (505) 863-5021 – $20.00/$25.00 depending if you purchase dinner (Ask for John)

This rally as a great opportunity to turn back the clock to a time when life was simpler and maybe even a bit slower. Take your time, see the sights, take some great pictures – maybe have a burger and malt – or two – or three – even tune into AM radio oldies 1600 in Albuquerque or XM 50’s radio and make believe its 1955!

I went last year and had a great time. I'm trying to set up some solar installation time with Lewster in July, but if I get back in time I'm in again.

Robin - alllll right - which vehicle are you bringing? This is a great rally because it combines old trailers with lots of old cars - oh yeah - there is route 66. New Mexico would welcome you - are minimum you are welcome to store your old cars and trailers here - we will take really good care of them

Pat - are coming to the restoration rally? Lew will be doing solar presentations and if you are ready to go, we could use your trailer as the demo...

Free roof paint

Ken,

I hope you will excuse this highjack, but maybe someone out there can use this stuff. I am Estancia, about 15 mi s of Rt 66. Maybe I can make this rally.

I have a couple of gallons of Sealoflex Ceramiflex (white) and 1/2 gal of acid etching primer. This is enough for a couple of AS roofs. It does make a difference in keeping cool and looks good too. Send me a message if you are interested.

Marshall

Neat old license plate, do you get to re-register it and keep the plate?
