Vintage Airstream Club's Concours D'Elegance
All Vintage Airstream or Argosy owners are invited to participate in the Vintage Airstream Club’s premier event for restored or preserved Airstream/Argosy trailers at the International this year.
The Concours D’Elegance (say dee ele gans) has been a part of the VAC gathering at the WBCCI International since the beginning of the Vintage Club in 1993. The Concours is a judged event, much like a car show, open to all Airstreams or Argosy’s 25 years or older that are registered for the WBCCI International Rally at Perry Georgia. The Concours occurs during the VAC Open House which this year will be on:
Saturday, June 30, 2007: 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM.
There is an Concours article including the judging sheet that will be used in the Vintage Advantage that was just sent to all VAC members.
Awards will be given as shown below:
