Exclamation Gauging interest: 30th Anniversary SVX Meet in 2022

The title says it all.

The first time we did it, back in 2002 in Lafayette, Indiana, was in commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of the Subaru SVX. A most remarkable event remembered by everyone in attendance and still talked about today

Fast forward 15 years. In 2017 there was once again the gathering of old and new friends in the same place; this time to celebrate the 25 years of the SVX.

And recent discussions have indicated the there is some genuine interest and enthusiasm about returning to Indiana in 2022 to commemorate the thirtieth birthday of the SVX.

Once you wrap your mind around this, the possibility of doing anniversary celebrations every so many years becomes more alluring. Similar to college reunions or wedding anniversaries, which are held every five or ten years these are not yearly events

The annual Reading Meets have been in existence almost as long and they sometimes get taken for granted. I can look back over photos taken at various Reading meets and sometimes am at a loss of whether they were taken at IV, VI or VII.

I am sure there is room and interest for supporting both types of meets. One is more regional, predictable and low-key. The Reading meet is a true tradition and would never be held anywhere but Morgantown. The other is a more of a commemoration or celebration of a milestone and could be held anywhere. Both are about the people and the cars.

But wouldn’t it be so cool to attend the 50 year celebration of the SVX in 2042 and have every SVX in attendance displaying antique or historic tags and be emissions exempt?
