I'm afraid to admit that I'm one of those people who has a love affair with every car and trailer I have owned. Some you just know need to go down the road without you at some point but they leave a lasting memory of the good times and the bad stuff seems to just vaporize the further down the block it goes. As my buddy says, I don't have enough life left to enjoy the stuff I've still got, keep it all maintained, do the updates I want to do, and just enjoy the fact that I've been able to acquire them. Still, it sure is sad to see one I've truly enjoyed and taken care of in someone else's care if they are not keeping it as nice as I remembered or think I was keeping it. Which leads me to what to do with my '58 Silver Streak Chico 17' now sitting out back under a cover because the '51 Airstream has replaced it. If I sell it I'll hate myself, if I keep it I'll never get around to finishing it. I guess it's better than wanting it and not ever being able to have had it. Barry

The first Airstream we ever had and restored was a 71 Safari. I still remember my husband busting his face with a gorilla bar when he was prying the old floor up. He was unhappy. So when it was finally done, and we sold it to buy a bigger one...I was sad but yet okay remembering all the pain, money and time we spent on it. AND how crammed we were with 9 people in it. I did recognize it last year in a campground and went over to see it and the new owner. She is SO happy with it, and told me everything she has done with it...that I feel okay about it. Kinda. Except right now I don't have ANY. So I want back the ones I used to have... though I have totally given up on fitting in them however with 11 people now. I would be happy to settle with just working on one again. The heart says yes, the wallet says ha ha....
