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?

Re: Gauging interest: 30th Anniversary SVX Meet in 2022

I won't lie, having the events on the east coast or Midwest is a bummer for folks on the west coast.

I am interested in planning for the 30th anniversary.

Could we do a simultaneous East/West anniversary event? (or may be off set by a week for mad folk wished to do both)

Cheers,
Ian.

Here is a possible solution. The eastern SVXers go to Lafayette, Indiana.
The western SVXers go to Earl's for a 3 day fish fry.

Re: Gauging interest: 30th Anniversary SVX Meet in 2022

I would love to make it to a big meet, but the 4500 mile round trip from the West coast feels a bit long. I guess I could fly out, but then showing up to an SVX meet in a Dodge Neon (or what ever rental cars are these days) would feel a bit defeating. Anybody in the area who has an SVX on turo.com or something like that?

(Flyout, buy an SVX, drive it home? That's less than 2.5K miles.)

Cheers,
Ian.

We are planning something similar for 2022 in Australia.

There were only 249 SVXs sold in Australia so won't be a large gathering!

I'm interested. Been wanting to do a decent road trip, and 2+ years is a reasonable time frame to get my SVX roadworthy again!

Yes it is. That’s only 14 hrs. and just over 900 miles from you…

One way.

Definitely hoping to have my trailer by spring and hoping I can make it out there for the meet but I may have another challenge coming up this next year that may get in the way. We shall see how it all plays out
