My buddy is looking for a 13 panel Flying Cloud or Safari. He laments exactly the opposite, which is that all the "good ones" he's seen are back east or so far south he can't get there in time to have a look before they are sold.
I found both of mine within twenty minutes of my house after chasing and losing ones up to two days drive away. My Chevelle was 3 hours away, and I was dealing hard on one 2,600 miles away at the time.
It's funny how it works out - I've read many a hotrod article where people have been looking for years and all over the country only to bump into one just miles or a few hours from their home.
I think the real secret is to give a picture of what you are looking for to everyone you know in the area and see what happens. I am amazed at how frequently a neighbor our workmate will come up and mention they saw an Airstream near their home, now that they know I have one and have seen pictures of it.
