The Fly at Night Was Rolled Out During the Longest Solar Eclipse of the 21st Century?

I recently came across the FaN's "Certificate of Origin for a Vehicle." It is a copy; my insurer grabbed the original, which kinda miffed me.

Anyway, I was always curious as to when my trailer was completed. The certificate is dated 7/22/2009. I Googled the date out of curiosity; as it turns out, it was the day of the longest solar eclipse of the 21st century!

How uncanny is that for a trailer named the "Fly at Night"?

I'm wondering if that was the date of roll-out or the date the document was issued? For the sake of romance, I hope it was the roll-out date. I doubt if the trailers sit long at Jackson Center once completed. The FaN was destined for the dealership, which is also on the certificate.

Am also curious if anyone owns a trailer with the same date? We could be related......sorta.

Now I can't that Carly Simon song out of my head. The one that makes reference to "the total eclipse of the sun" - You're So Vain.

More synchronicity.

I think our trailers are a bit vain. Don't you?

I am pretty sure that song in about me!

I don't have any direct connection to the date 7/22/2009 but we were preparing for a trip to East Coast of Canada and return via the central USA thru Reno.

It was a great trip with lots of souvenirs large and small. Picked up this FORD while on PEI.
