Classic Clinchers Curriculum

Hi everyone - I mostly ride my vintage bikes with tubulars and have my own well developed theory about quality rims with that technology. When it comes to vintage clinchers I need some education.

A few of my bikes have clinchers. I have a couple of sets of 80s Abrosio Elite Extra 19s but I am not convinced they are that great. I also have a set of Mavic clincher rims (on DA hubs so assume they must be decent). Here are my questions:

1. What other rims should I be looking out for, here in the Near North of Ontario, for both 70s and 80s vintage road bikes?
2. Is there already a vintage clinchers thread that I have missed in my search of this subject?
