Default Why not have a vintage section?

This question has been brought up several times while chatting with other members. Why doesn't RCTECH have a vintage section?

Many people including myself like to restore vintage cars / trucks (especially during the winter / off season). It would be nice to have a section on here to show our vintage restorations as well as complete vintage rollers.

Possibly enforce guidelines as to the age of the cars / trucks (Nothing newer than 10yrs old). That way it opens doors to vintage and semi-vintage.

Hopefully one day we will have a vintage section!

This question is asked occasionally. There are a few Vintage threads that get some activity. Not enough to support a separate section though, and I don't see it changing.

Dave, I understand that completely. There is an old saying "if you build it, they will come"

Hopefully one day there will be enough interest to justify putting in a vintage section.

Just a point, small point, (Nothing newer than 10yrs old) << that would make my AE RC10B4 vintage. I and others still race this. Out of production less than two years.

Perhaps out of production for 10 (more or less??) years, would work.

Trying to assist in where the line is made.

1994 or so is commonly used as a cut off in the Vintage community. No Losi XX or AE B2 or similar era basically.

If you do, might need to consider the buy/sell/trade part of it. Just a thought.

That is an excellent point and completely understandable. Thank you for bringing that up!

Having a vintage buy / sell / trade section would be great.

A different sale area is not going to happen.

Yes, it is good site. However, many people have established feedback on here. That would definitely make it easier for selling and trading of vintage items.
