    Year Model to be considered as vintage at OSH

    Here's the current and definitive list of categories. Technically, the newest, Contemporary, ends at 1970.

    Does the 1970 cutoff date ever change?

    It hasn't, and I don't know of any plans, but I'd personally think it's going to have to eventually.

    The "Contemporary" cut up date used to be 1965 back when I first started going to Oshkosh back 25 years ago. It has been bumped up at irregular intervals, but I it has been pegged at 1970 (i.e., the date of manufacturer must be on or before December 31, 1970), for quite a while now. As Hal says, I haven't heard any interest in bumping it forward lately.

    I should hear about it. I wrote the software that Vintage uses to look up eligibility dates by registration number.
