Damn, I am a man of small imagination!! Yes, the forward hemisphere would look great as an entrance to the study in the new adobe! I've always considered Mbuti* (the Caravel) as my spaceship, a unique environment I take with me to strange lands. An Airstream entrance to the study would be a perfect extension of that feeling. Excellent.

And to Rebel Beck I say, yes, I loved the 70s (which is when the 60s really happened). Hot jets and hotter ..., well, you know. Wasn't it a Roosevelt who said getting shot at and missed was the best exhillaration?

Now that I think about it, the 80s were great, the 90s were great, the 00s are great, hmmm, there's a pattern here, methinks.

*The Mbuti Pygmies of Zaire are characterized as good natured and happy. Since food and firewood are so plentiful, only a small portion of their day is spent hunting or doing chores, leaving an abundance of time for singing and storytelling. They are peaceful and avoid conflict with outsiders, preferring to return to their "real" world of the forest rather than deal with unpleasant situations. Instead of having a central figure of authority, they live cooperatively and ... maintain the hippie spirit of the 60s.

Nope, it was Winston Churchill.

I have been told if you remember the 70's, you weren't there. I have no memory of the 70's, or the 60's, either, for that matter...

What a shame having to watch a nice Airstream basically disolve in front of you.

This is a shame! Dave is sick to see one of his brother die this terrible lonesome death! Can´t some one get it out of there and even if it is just for parts it would be a better death than it is now...

We are so terrible sorry...

Bad news (for now)

Believe it or not, the lien holder on this Airstream (a relative) won't release it, so the deal is off and the Ambassador will continue to sit in the junk yard, useless.

I really thought I'd finally gotten hold of this Airstream, if only for salvage, but I guess 5 years of trying isn't enough. Not that I'm giving up, mind you, so watch for more news in 6 months or a year!

I had a buddy who was pursuing a car for years - close to twenty - and one day he got home to a vm from the owner saying get your butt over here and pick it up or it goes to the junkyard. The guy told him when he got there that he'd arranged for the wrecker to show up that night if it wasn't gone so he beat them by a couple of hours. It would have been a sad ending for a 32 Ford hot rodded in the fifties that was still very driveable. I suspect that at some point you could get a similar call from the trailer folks if you keep them aware of your interest. Good luck with it. And hopefully they don't equate that interest as a revenue stream for them.

I would like the interior round light lens covers if you could get them.
If available, how much?
thanks

Without the lienholders release it could be reported as stolen later. the bill of sale would be void, if there was one.

The owner is probably holding onto it, thinking it will be worth a lot of money some day. However, the longer it sits in that location exposed to the weather, vandals, and people looking for loose parts, by the time they decide they want to sell it it won't be worth anything.
