Thumbs up On the History Channel, "Back to the Blueprint"

Check your local listings and all that, but as I was going through the
line-ups for stuff to record for the next few days, I found a show
called "Back to the Blueprint" on the History Channel -- and this Saturday's
episode (premiere) is on restoring Airstreams...

Here's the description from the site:

"Marty Dunham works on restoring vintage Airstream trailers; repairing
the distinctive all-aluminum shell and restoring the interior of the original
land yachts."

It's on at 11:30 a-yem (Sat. the 15th).

Hi Everyone,

Time for a little self-promotion. TrailerWorks is being featured on the History Channelís restoration show, Back to the Blueprint. The show airs this Saturday at 11:30 am (Eastern) on the History Channel.

Iím not sure Iím comfortable with being called an Airstream ďspecialistĒ, but I guess it fit the script. We did have fun filming the show, and I hope you enjoy it if you can find a few minutes this Saturday. If not, Iím sure it will run again at 2:30 am some random TuedayÖ

Hope you like it!

Eric

It was definitely worth getting out of the heat for. Best 30 minutes we've had all day....

A little rivet here, a little tug there, a little rotten wood here, and on it goes....

Thanks Eric for a great show!!!!

I liked the show as well, it just seemed a little short, how about 2 hours or a weekly series .

We were able to catch it today! Thanks so much for posting the information, otherwise we would have missed watching it! We normally aren't in front of the TV on Saturday late morning! Enjoyed it, only wish it were longer....

Darn it again!!!
Upon further investigation, the program " Back To The Blueprints " will air next Saturday,but it will be a different EPISODE. Not about Airstreams.

TIMEMACHINE,
Do you know someone with a DVD recorder that you might borrow and hook it up to your DVR ?


Mark
