I still have no answer when people ask, "Which one would you sell?" I love them both. I always keep an eye out for another project, too (although I would have to find more space to store it as well).
Hey, your neighbor to the North has space - and someone we both know has the address for a clipper of all things....

Oh well.

Does my neighbor to the North have a wife who would welcome another project trailer being towed into the yard?

I don't have an adition, Do I?

I enjoy working on these treasures. Having a desk job, there is not the same satisfaction as being in the field. So, to prevent depression due to a feeling of never really producing anything I restore things.
Started with old cars, moved on to a Case Front End Loader, all the while looking for the right Airstream. Found one, then another, then another, then another, then another and finally another. Yup I know that is 6, we have give two up for adoption.....

Oh yeah, I am still looking for another...

Wife? Oh yeah, right, sorry, forgot about that little obstacle (she'll like the fact that when I referred to her I used the word little). If I start casually mentioning it now, perhaps by this time next year, or the year after, she'll look favorably upon a family addition. I must admit, she seems to have this "thing" about me finishing up the other outstanding projects around here before I add any more. Women just do not understand.........it's the guys hunter-gatherer gene at play here. We can't help it. If enough is just right then more is even better.

I'll start "working" on the problem this evening .

Thanks for the good advice Mel - I'll bet it's Lee using your avatar...

Barry

Andre, do you still have that Argosy for parts? It still counts as long as you still have the frame!...

Works for me...but don't tell the wife

I have two, most I have ever had at one time was 4 but that was a technicality one was just "passing" through. Both of mine are undergoing a 120 step (going on 3 years now) rehab. The '75 is going back together pretty much original, the '80 is going full custom interior, but based on my current time line it probably won't get completed before 2030 (wonder what I can replace the Univolt with by then? )

Well I only have 4 right now, but have had 10 in 8 years, no more then 5 at a time. Had to sell the city house and move to the country.
Still looking for a smaller then the 67 Safari.
