If you look at a map, and divide the eastern seaboard into 3 parts (say... top, mid, and bottom atlantic)... the "mid" areas would be like NC, VA, DC or so. eh.. just thinking aloud.Christopher.

and rare, it is probably not :-).
Our "Mid-Atlantic" is below New England and above North Carolina. As
far west as Pittsburgh. That said everyone world-wide is welcome and
encouraged to join. Every so often we have the "what is vintage"
"what Ebay auction is worth posting to the entire group" "What
Craigslist posting is worth posting" discussion. The consensus has
been set already. As one of the list moderators I am just helping
keep posts on topic.
