Randall's and Rolex's

Well we all have our Airstream hobby and we belive that they are the best in the field. How many of us own/collect the other finely made things in life. I just got my newest Randall knife this week. Have a model 1 a model 10-3 and just got an 18 , had a 24 but sold for Truck upgrades. Both wife and I have rolex and just gave Son my used stainless datejust for his 21st b-day. Really love Randall knives , just in Fla. but unable to tour factory , maybe next year.

Hmmm. What finely made things do we collect? Let's see. Aspen glow on the glacier sitting high on Mt. Stanley, viewed from campsite # 4. . .glitter in the gold pan just lifted from the icy waters of upper Boulder River. . .sea urchins in the tide pools near San Diego. . .sea shells strung on the beach at sunrise on Dauphin Island. . .balsam scent-ladened breeze on Artists' Point at Grand Marais. . .grandsons bending new flyrods in the Madison. . .family faces lit by the flicker of evening campfire at Bennett Spring. . .our new-to-us Airstream arriving tomorrow afternoon. . .okay, I couldn't resist. I know this isn't what you meant, but these are the ideas that leaped into my mind when I read the post. Jewels, everyone of them, in our collection!

Al american things

Hi ctdair;
Not so fine than your Randall or Rolex..., I 'm a collector of all American 60' dinner deco as interior dinner ( red table, barstools, juke box, wall box, coca distributor, neonlights, pinball, ) , old fridges ( GE, Frigidaire... ) and automobile license plates from USA & Can.
About this, I've tried, in the past to get some old and unused license pltes from your Airstream to try to do a complete suite of all states, only in trailers category but no success. Here was the link / threat about this:

http://www.airforums.com/forum...ead.php?t=3455

But the real jewel for me is my AIRSTREAM, my old silver bullet.


Bruno.

NB, i'have bought this old coca-cola distributor, and it gives me really fresh coca- cola in glass bottles, as in the 60'... What a kick !!!

Thumbs up Randall and Rolex

Maxandgeoriga,
I feel the same about quality ( as opposed to quanity). I also have a Randall bird and fish knife, and a Rolex Submariner that I've had for over 17 years. Last year it went back to Rolex because I broke the crystal ( I don't baby it) and also for a polishing and internal cleaning. When I got it back they not only polished it cleaned it and replaced the crysal but they replaced the face and the bezel too. A fantastic job.It really looked new.
After waiting 30 years I bought a Martin guitar last year, a H28 Vintage Reissue. A beautiful guitar in both sound and looks. Sounds like we might have money, but not true. We live very modestly. It's just that we don't buy a lot of "stuff". A little beauty goes a long way( all I have to do is look at my wife. The next beauty in my life will be an Airstream. I've loved them as long as I can remember.I'm even trying to think of away,at some point to move in to one. say a34ft Classic. In the mean time we're looking for an older small Airstream.
I have to admire the Frenchman for his great 50's American collection. I
would imagine it's not easy to aquire that stuff in France.

Jack

Hey Bruno!

It's great to see a Detroit Lions fan in France. With the way they've been performing, Lions fans are becoming scarce even here in Michigan.
