Wow! Look what's parked next door!

Last evening the dogs kept barking. I finally got up and went outside to see what was causing them to bark. WOW! Lookee here! It's a wonderful 1961 Bambi! Our neighbors have visitors who are traveling with their vintage Bambi. It looks to be in perfect condition. Thought I'd share a picture with you. I've told them about the Airforums, and expect they'll be joining us soon.

As I understand it, the owners, Jane and Pierce, bought it from an older couple who had taken great care of it. Jane told me she's always loved Airstreams, and has alot of questions. I said I was just a novice myself, but the airforums is the place for answers. :-)) We all understand that I-don't-know-why-I-love-these-things.

Talk about good neighbors! We just returned from a home concert by the Bambi owners. They are Hymn For Her, Maggi and Pierce, and are traveling from here to CA for to continue their concert tour. Pierce told me the previous owner found the Bambi in a field, and restored it. All new electric, gas, etc, inside, axle, tires, polish outside. They're coming back through ABQ later this month and I'll have a chance to take some inside pics. Will post them when I get them.
