Wow, what a sleak modern looking beauty. I'll be interested to see what it goes for. Would have to redo a lot of the interior finishes, but wow.

makes it kind of hard to appreciated the vintage units like this historic Cortez.

Always thought the Cortez was a good looking RV. Believe it has the Oldsmobile front wheel drive engine and transmission. Never owned one and that might change my mind. Still looks quite fun. Pat

Pat, have you looked at the linked listing?
At that price, if the rust is not too bad it could be a fun project.

Yes it has the front wheel drive Olds engine setup.

Cheers Richard

Since Boom Sounds transported us so nicely back to 1936.
Loved seeing the story and beautiful interior of that old Moho.
And seeing that my brother sent me this link to a 1936 airstream clipper,
Just this morning. I think it's fitting to share even if it's not a motorhome.

Enjoy, http://www.ebay.com/itm/222232670812

I was looking for a photo of my first creation and I came across this thread that I did not know existed until today:
http://www.airforums.com/forums/f310...ml#post1204747
Here it is, my 77 20' Argosy. A little imagination, a lot of spray paint and some large PVC tubes can get heads to turn

^^ That color scheme is way cool Wayne.
I just came over from that thread asking about your rig.
Interesting speculation about those tubes going on over there.
But, no , don't tell us right away. Let's see where it goes.
The snorkel idea was interesting.
Solar water heaters is my guess

I'm also wondering about the banded treatment on the front bumper,
Oh, and that little sticker on the hood?
And the red trim seems to go off near the back of the coach.

More pics are called for if you have them.

And last but not the least, a big congrats on your resent retirement Wayne!

Cheers Richard

Flag/awning poles or fishing rod storage get my vote

Crazy but I saw that same one in Traverse city Michigan a couple years ago.
I was hoping it was on this thread

Just came across this pic of a VW one off on another forum. No details, but interesting possibly aluminum skin.

Hope it got a boost in power!
