July 17th 2017 8:05 pm CLASS ACT by Knighty

When we first started the Class Act events in 1987 Lucy and I decided to sponsor the Best Of Show keeping with our Class theme we bought a genuine silver champagne bucket....The award went to Eddy Fucci and his chopped 4-wheel drive "Zelda"...

Ed was thrilled with the award and kept it for many years on his dining room table.......He was very proud of his trophy - then - his house burned down...........

July 17th 2017 7:44 pm TROPHIES by Knighty

TROPHIES - and the award ceremony - normally conclude the van shows that we all attend....They can vary in appearance while they fill their duty as awards for a "job well done''

They can take on completely different in
appearances...Some can be the gold plated plastic ones that can be purchased at your local trophy shop,or wall plaques perhaps ordered from that same business.....

One of the awards I like best are the "home - made" creations of vanners such as Kenny from Salt City Vans....I don't recall his last name off the top of my head, but if you know Salt City - you know Kenny.....He has taken on the job for a number of years and this years are over the top....We look forward to next year and what he may come up with.....

Prior to Kenny taking on the task this chore was handled by Dave Senke....It was the year after Pat Turk died and we were awarded the "Best Of Show" in his place.....the year was 1999.....If you ever get up here in the Adirondacks - stop by and see this trophy...It's a Hot Wheel size van carved into stone and mounted on a substantial block of wood........It is the most fantastic trophy you will probably ever see !

July 04th 2017 3:35 pm THE GOOD OLD DAYS by Knighty

IN THE OLD DAYS we never heard much about vans..Our only connection was when a stray van magazine stumbled into the magazine display at the hotel....We did however have a pretty good hot rod club - the VAPOR TRAILERS -and our local priest made it possible for our club to use a portion of the Ford garage....That is where I built the flathead motor for my '35 Ford coupe.....In the meantime I was tooling around town in my souped up '49 Ford...I did a lot of work on that car and it was pretty hot....It would be a few years before any customs showed up - driven by some of the local college students....

Lucy and I recently attended this event "Jamakin me Van Crazy," held at the Riverforest RV park in Weedsport NY....hosted by Salt City Vans....

Salt City is a well-known - let me say - famous club that is known far and wide for the many events they have hosted in the past 36 years......Their event is well known for being a vans only event....

The RV park is quite large and the campers are happy to see the vanners..they are constantly driving by the club area....We sit in our lawn chairs and watch them go by....There is a pool, restaurant,showers, ect. that are open to the vanners....but not all is rosey and we hear that they may have a different location next year....Where ever that may be, we'll be there !!!!!
