In as much as laws vary from state to state, setting up a national lottery would be costly and time consuming.

There are always lotteries advertised in AUTOWEEK for special interest cars benefiting different charities. However, the net proceeds to the charity are usually small after advertising and administrative costs are taken out.

It would be interesting to know if the charity is something like Trout Unlimited.

The Anderson Mobile Estate guys are getting a tv series on Travel Chanel ( ala American chopper ) It would be cool to get the same type series for Airstream builds.

For a TV series you need some guys who don't get along very well, fight and are weird. Despite their psychological problems, they should be successful at what they do. Some sort of fake competition needs to be involved. Maybe the Donald can have a role.

The teardrop looks cool, although I wouldn't want to prepare a meal when it is raining. More importantly, look at the detail of an exterior corner—the miters are open as it the joint just above them. For that kind of money, the workmanship should be a lot better.

Ummm, okay, I'll admit my ignorance on carpentry.

My carpenter grandpa would have noticed that, too. I have a sideboard and buffet he built out of oak over 100 years ago, still in terrific condition and used every day.

I just thought the teardrop looked purty.

The problem is the bucket full of solid gold nails they used to put it together..

Is that where your screen name originated? I am sure you know that the English translation from Spanish means, roughly, "to psychologically manipulate".

I could be your co-star. I can be an absolute a**hole, until I start drinking. Then I become a lovable teddy bear and sing a lot. And I'm good looking, people say I look like a young Walter Brennan.

Looks like we are starting a reality TV program. I can play any number of psychopaths, and I may not be playing. I hardly ever drink anymore, but will for money and will say things I really mean after 2 beers. I too am good looking and fortunately, never looked like Walter Brennan. My wife is even better looking and never looked like Walter Brennan either.

Maybe we can tow Airstreams around and have exciting adventures. After a few seasons we can tow them through the Andes and meet Lisa Kelly. Since being an A…hole seems to be essential, we can pass the TV sensors by calling it AirHoles on the Road.

Who is going to fund the pilot?

Gene

I like the name, but it needs to be more flashy for TV. What about Keeping up with the Airholes, or maybe Amping it up with the Airholes.

Maybe get a major tow vehicle to sponsor. T.V.'s bringing you TV.
