National Rally

The National Scotty Rally for 2005, July 21-25, at Coopers Lake Campground, near Slippery Rock, PA continues to take shape. The planning committee has accumulated a large pool of prizes and events and this could be the best rally yet. A National Rally is a great opportunity for you to show off what you've done, and see what others have done. Plus there's lots of fun for everyone! This year's rally will feature the first annual Dutch Oven Cookoff so if you have a Dutch Oven, dust it off and bring your best recipe. A great prize goes to the winner, and you get bragging rights until the next National Rally! More info...

Meet the Baileys: Kathy, Mark & Katie

The Baileys acquired their Scotty five years ago after Kathy had printed a picture of a similar looking camper and hung it in the window of her 1955 Chevy's window to advertise that she was looking for a vintage camper. A customer of her auto restoration business saw the picture and had an uncle who had "an older camper he might want to get rid of". Kathy and Mark drove the 80 miles to look and happily discovered it was a Scotty. Its fate was sealed!

Kathy is in the auto restoration business with her Dad and they do mostly custom streetrod interiors. They do all their personal cars themselves, paint, interiors, engines, etc. Mark works in the bodyshop office of a Chevrolet dealer so bodywork is no problem either! Daughter Katie is 10 years old.

Kathy and Mark sure didn't know what they were getting in for when they bought their Scotty, but it has all been worth it. They live on John's Island, SC, about 10 miles from downtown Charleston. Kathy's tow vehicle is her 1955 "SUV" Chevy, affectionately known as Nellie. She is driven every day!
