Antique bus gathering

Another bus gathering this year in Arkansas. I'm going, all buses are welcome.



There should be a flier with more details soon.

There was one two years ago, I didn't make that one but I'm told it was great.

Good question! While she's no blue ribbon, bull goose winner, gotta reckon my 30 yo Int'l ought be considered antique. The driver surely is...

You don't need to have an antique to attend, just to park with and participate in the "old" events. Mine is a 91 and I was assured I was welcome. They park on the street with the blessing of the town. There is a campground four blocks from the staging area. I'm planning on just staying there.

25 years old determines when antique starts on a vehicle.

Here's the handbill with contact info.


No entry fee. Tom asks that if you are going to attend you send an email so he knows how many buses to expect.

This is a link to the handbill. Feel free to download and pass around.

I just noticed this thread. I'm curious about the definition of an antique vehicle. I can remember hearing many times in the past that it was only 25 years. But at least in Oregon that has changed. And they've also added other hoops too. From the Oregon DMV website:

"Under Oregon license plates rules, a motor vehicle qualifies as an antique ride provided it is older than half the number of years between the current year and 1900. In addition, the car must be maintained as a collector’s item. Per state laws, custom car registration documents may be issued to vehicles that qualify as assembled, reconstructed or replica."

So that would currently be 60 years old.

The requirements vary from state to state. Most I've seen (but not all) put a 'classic' at 15 yrs or older and an 'antique' at 25 or 30. Some also have a 'historic' designation, but I'm not sure what that involves. And some limit how many miles you can drive an 'antique"-plated car. It's a pretty mixed bag.

All the late '60s musclecars I've owned were just registered in the regular manner, since they were all daily drivers anyway.
