In 2005, three Bozeman area residents, with a love of vintage cars, the most extensive, spectacular and accessible venue in the world for touring them, and the intent of raising money for Montana charities, organized a rally for cars built in 1973 or earlier. They staged a five-day trip across Montana, from Yellowstone to Glacier National Park. Since then the Going To The Sun Rally has become recognized as unique among a handful of truly great vintage car rallies. An intimate, authentic Montana experience, the Going To the Sun Rally attracts vintage rallying enthusiasts from across the U.S. and Europe. The rally travels throughout western Montana and occasionally to neighboring states and Canada. As a 501(c)(3) organization, the rally has contributed over $500,000 to deserving Montana organizations.
