Gold Airstream - not

My father-in-law said, "Go look at the gold Airstream in Brush, CO." I did, and this picture is what you might call a "drive by shooting." Darn, it's just Avion.

Love that tow vehicle, is it a Massey-Ferguson? Was just wondering what average speed you posted in the towing speed poll?

Looks like it is being used as a chicken coop. Even Avion doesn't deserve that.

Lightbulb Read once

The color is due to the process of the unit being anodized.
If so, that's not such a big deal..Just makes it harder to "Polish"..lol

Anodized aluminum actually helps stem the process of oxidization...
It will, in most cases, give it a duller looking finis.

DreamStream,

It's a 1951 Ford 8N. I've had it up to 13 mph on the pavement, but with the TW in tow it would be a scarry experience beyond my imagination.

Heh heh,
My 46 2N has a Sherman overdrive in it. It'll do nearly 20.
Not for the faint at heart...
Those Ns are great though. I just finished plowing my driveway with mine.
