Great article!

There is a long list of folks at Airstream and MoMA that are responsible for this great addition to the mesuem. The restoration was done by the AS Service Team in JC and they truely did a wonderful job. More to follow in the next edition of Airstream Life Magazine!

Lightbulb Ghosts and echos

Ghosts and Echos

Nice read. I was suprised when I realized it was one of those friendly pop-up ghost threads from 2007.

I just love reading thur a NEW 20 post thread, realizing in the end it's years old. No I really do!

All those screen names, which at first blush look like new members. Distant names which make you think "Yea, those guys haven't posted in a while" only to realize the new guys came and went and the old guys are just echos.

Evolution.

I find myself rereading these ghosts threads and noticing the difference in mood and tone of our community, the world, the times, myself, you.

Reflective

It's like discovering and reading a letter behind the stove you wrote 10 years ago to a friend, or smoothing out the crumpled newspaper used as packing material in a long forgotten box of your parents things.

Anthropology

Just some random thoughts...

Yes grasshopper, the teacher has become the student.....

I thought it would be better to continue the New York Times thread contributions and not starting a new one as so many like to do.

I hope this helps keep the "thread count" down or at least easier to find and follow. And more interesting for new trailerites too!

Nice link - I'd seen the site for the GlobeTrotter-turned-Eyelusion museum previously, but didn't know it was owned by an author - and one who seems to be experiencing a little resurgence in interest, no less.

Good luck Mr. Payne!

P.S. Here's a YouTube video I just found, with a closer look at the re-imagined 1964 GlobeTrotter:

Sffd?

IN the NYT real estate section I spotted this trailer located in a former San Francisco fire house that is now for sale.

Would any bay area streamers have any information on this trailer?

It looks like it could have been " In Service" with the SFFD.

I'll take it!
(The firehouse that is, don't need another trailer!)

On a serious note - my first impression is that's not a real firehouse-used trailer. Looks like private citizens have already lived there for quite a while, amassing a nice collection of fire-related memorabilia. I'd guess the Airstream is just another funky item dressed up to have a firefighting theme.

It could be very cool though, to imagine an Airstream behind a fire truck. It could be a mobile rest unit during remote forest fires -- imagine it with the gold lettering down the side, rows of extra hose and a rack of fresh oxygen tanks mounted on the back...

I think there may be more to this trailer and from the looks of the rest of the collection the seller may even be a Firefighter. The door has some sort of sign (fire helmet?) looks official.

http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2010/04/21/greathomesanddestinations/20100421-wyg-slideshow.html#1

Check out the rest of the House and see the rest of the collection.

I saw Airstreams constantly until I bought one...the news is where it surprised and fascinated me the most. I didn't want a trailer that looks like every other trailer out there...I wanted something different. Mine fits the bill!

Thanks for the articles!!!
