I've been trying to take photos of something representative of each trip we go on in our new Airstream. I also collect things like the camping receipts and tickets or receipts of activities we do while on camping trips to add to the journal I started when we picked up our AS at the dealer. I'm hoping that I'll be able to scan the receipts and put together an electronic scrap book for each of our boys to have of the fun times we have with our Airstream.

We are enjoying it so much that this is turning out to be a major task.

Nice pictures. It sure looks like Airstreams were more prevalent back then.Like the Zion shot with the Airstream coming out of the tunnel.Thanks for posting the link.

Kodachrome or Ectachrome ?

My father took many slides of our travels with the Airstream. I have found the ones that had shots of the Airstream in it.

I am hoping that looking at these 'vintage' pictures would not only be fun but may be helpful to restorers that want to see what a trailer looked like 'back then'.

The link is: Roger's Airstream History They are in no particular order. As people help the identifications, I will post more notes. My father's list of trailers that they owned are: '57, '62, '69, '71, '76 and '92. We have the '92 so there are no photos of that.

Have fun!
Thanks for posting the pictures. They are really nice. I was just about to ask you if the slides were Kodachrome or Ectachrome when it hit me..... I asked you that same question back in 2002.

Seems like the 70's also. There are two shots with other Airstreams in them and they are different Airstreams.

Wow, Roger, those pix are sooooo cool !!!!!!

Hey Roger,

Just wanted to say Hi, and thanks for looking at my old Airstream Pix I posted.... I have my work cut out for me now, cuz you have me inspired to get em downloaded to digital, so I can share them like you have.

I'll tell you, you were one lucky kid, as was i, to be an official "Airstream Brat".
Not too many out here on the forum can say this. The awesome memories, The places you saw, the things you did as a family..were things I'll bet you carry with you every day of your life.... I know I do, and i am tickled to have an exact clone to my Grandparents trailer now, and I intend on making some history of my own for my kids and I.

Your father had the MOST AWESOME taste in tow cars!!!
As a classic car guy, and a dyed-in-the-wool FORD guy, I have always been a "woody wagon" guy...and the ultimate Ford "trailer hauler" has always been the Mercury Colony Park, or the Ford Country Squire.

Seems your dad had a 1960 Colony Park, a 62, a 63, a 65 Commuter, and a 68 Colony Park. That is WAAAAAAAAAAY too cool !!!!!! WOW !!!

My buddy (that has over 300 cars) has a '68 Red Colony Park that I may just have to check out.... It is a 428 car, witha roof rack, A/C and loaded with options....I think this would be the ultimate Airstream hauler!!! I hafta find the big white full width mudflap to hang under the rear bumper tho.....that is the ultimate in cool.....

And i also hafta find a pair of those "Ultra-Cool" Peter Fonda Ray Ban 60's sunglasses too......

Gee...think i was born 20 yrs too late now???

People ask me..."Don't you like ANY new stuff???"
I reply....."Sure I do......when it get's old, I do...."

Maybe we need to create a WBCCI sub group for 'brats'?

My father always used a wagon until they stopped putting the 400 engine in them. The last one he had was a '71 wagon. He then went to a Club Wagon with a 460.

Thanks for the additional site to look at Roger. My parents took a ton of pictures when we camped but they were all with SOB's as they were Airstream wannabee's which is probably where I got my obsession from. By the time I was 21 I was on the prowl for just the right one. It took a while. My brother has all the slides from back then so I'll see if he's willing to let me have them for a while to pull out the camping ones that would be relevant here. They did take a picture of any Airstream they saw in the campgrounds on our trips across Canada and the USA and during any slideshow we were sure to see at least a few where Dad would always quip "And here's our next trailer" to which we all roll our eyes having heard it a hundred times before. So does that make us brat wannabee's?

Barry

I think it would be a neat new game to match the NUMBERS on the top of the old airstream photos, to the same airstreams still in use today!!

My numer is : 10183 if anyone has an old shot of this Overlander, I'd love to see it!!
