I can't believe it!!

My wife and I were driving around various small towns on the Texas coast looking for some vacation property when we saw the two trailers below. Upon further review, the airstream was determined to be a 1954 26' Cruiser. Inquiries with some of the local folks ensued, the owner was found, and a deal was made. This little darlin' will soon be arriving in San Antonio, TX. She is gutted from the wardrobe/bath forward.

Wow Bruce,

You better start playing the lotto with those 7 or 8 trailers you have there. Knowing your MO on how you operate when dealing with trailers, you should have been arrested for stealing it .

So...when does the work on that 54 start?

It's a great find, Bruce, but I think you have a problem.

So....I assume you decided against the vacation property? I cannot believe Ms Rose allowed you to do this.. But if you get this one done it will be the pick of the litter!!

What the tinman54 said ~ "We kind of like Cruisers" . Like, DITTO .
Self serving?? Too obvious?? Oh well . . . . Don't really care.

Thanks so much for the call last nite!! Obviously very excited for ya'll. This one will easily prove to be the most favorite, the pick of your considerable litter.
All offers hereby eagerly reaffirmed. Can't happen soon enough!!
I love that old time rock & roll.
