I got mine and read it right away, cover to cover, stool outside next to the mail box and read 1/3. I then went into the yard and continues to read it, standing there, while holding the rest of the mail in my hand. What a fine publication. I think that the Blue Beret should take serious note. Mine arrive in perfect shape, however, the sticker is missing, where do I get one? No. I have the sticker, but would love another. I especially enjoyed the article about #8671 and Shari's introduction was spot on... good luck with getting to BoZeman... little bites is my technique. Take enough bites and you can eat an elephant.

Frank,

The top of page 30 has information on how to order VAC Merchandise, including additional stickers.

There is an order form for all the new VAC merchandise (including stickers) on page 30 - just opposite your "missing" sticker ~

It's better to look good and feel good.

Kimber and Tim,

You know by making the VAC Vintage Advantage look and feel so good, we will never let you go!


Let me know if there's ever any thing I can do to help out.

Funny you should mention it... The help we need as usual is for folks like you to write stories.This isn't our newsletter, it is OUR Newsletter (arms wide open towards everyone). We have enough materials for the grand International Issue coming up and due to be out before the International Rally. And for everyone who reeads this, that issue is not just about the International Rally but ALL things international and will include the more and more popular Big Red Numbers story.
We love what we are doing and we are very happy that people appreciate that contribution no matter how big or small it might seem. Your appreciation fuels us.

Coming from a designer who has worked on many publications the feel of the piece in your hand can be as important as proper pairing of wine with food. The printer we are using has this as thier house stock so we actually save a little using this over other papers.
There are basically 2 kinds of paper - coated and uncoated. There are thousands of varieties in each kind. The uncoated paper is like your garden variety Xerox paper. The stock we use is dull coated - it is nice and smooth. But what we get using that kind of paper is very fine printing because the ink does not spread out (dot gain) like the uncoated stock does.
O.K. There - now you know all of our secrets!!! (No, you dont).

Thumbs up More kudos for the Vintage Advantage

Hi, Kimber,

Just wanted to add my congratulations on the latest VA. Ours arrived a couple of days ago in perfect condition. It was quite a surprise to find the VAC sticker inside.

You are doing a fantastic job with it. I will try to do my part by getting some "stuffing" to you.

See you down the road,
Nuvi

Make a copy of the page instead of tearing it out ~

The Vintage advantage looks great! You have really raised the bar on this one. I even had fun writing that #8671 article for it - my first real story to ever go to print. The only condition concern with our copy when it arrived was a rub mark that wore thru the blue background near the top of the front cover.

Loved it!

Just got mine - everything was perfect including the sticker - my mom's in the hospital so I have read it cover to cover while sitting with her. Format is excellent and I can't wait until the next issue. I feel privileged to be in the vintage group. paula
