Just showed this vehicle on CNBC's "The Big Idea"...interviewed Ford's lead designer and spent about five minutes on the Airstream/Ford Concept.

Very cool.

We looked at this concept at the show also. Neat little vehicle. We didn't see any rivets though.

I wonder.. why is this called Airstream? It has as much to do with the original Airstream idea as a jerry can.
And the interior.. completely nonsense design.

We saw it at the Detroit auto show last week and it is really eye-catching. The paint is probably the most interesting part since it looks like chrome. Wheelbase looked a bit short for towing much though.

There are lots of photos and a great video at:

I still think it's pretty cool. But then again, I'm not that worked up about WBCCI. I can't even find my unit. They exist only in the WBCCI directory; don't return phone calls, don't show up where the posted meetings are supposed to occur, and I guess don't want any more members. Oh well; our renovation project benefits from the wisdom here, not in a defunct WBCCI unit.

There was an article in my local paper about it. It has a tempered glass grill which incorporates the headlights and decorative lighting too. Is powered by Fords hydrogen cell/lithium-ion battery powertrain. Goes 25 miles on battery then hydrogen cell kicks in. It plugs into household current. Detachable rear cameras replace side mirrors. And has a 360 degree tv monitor inside with rotating images. Wow!

Ford Concept is mutualy exclusive

Cute -and I agree they missed some style opportunities. VW had the same
trouble with the concept remake of the VW Bus.

The big problem I see is they missed a major opportunity by not creating
a tow vehichle. Any crazy and wealthy AS enthusiast would be dying
to get ahold of an AS compatible tow vehicle. I would just love to see
one of those combos rolling down the road. It would be the best rolling
advertisement ever for the vehicle and the trailer.

I'm not implying that AS enthusiasts are wealthy by any means. I'm
fulltiming it and on the road though, I am amazed at how many of the
people who drive the fullblown bus coaches priced well over $200K seem
to love a shiny AS. I think a Ford/AS combo could entise some of them.
