What I think is missed here, is these dates are for club purposes and judging at meets, so we DON"T have a 1960 Evinrude being judged beside a 1913 Evinrude for best original antique. But it seems some get frustrated because autos are considered antique after just 25 years. So using that criteria you would have your 1993 Johnson being judged with a 1913 Evinrude for all things antique...
Think about that for a minute... I understand the frustration, but as a club do we want a 1993 being judged as an antique against a 1913, or even a 1930.... the two motors almost no similarities......
It is a slippery slope indeed... Just trying to clarify what would happen if the club decides to roll the dates.... on the other hand, maybe pre-1950 should be considered Pre-Antique, then 1950- (set rolling date) be newly crowned "Antique"..
