Enjoy SEMA. I got to go about five years ago on a special offer from SEMA for non-automotive folks. Had to spend one day evaluating displays and the rest of the time was mine. It's a gear head's heaven.

Their offer this year was only good for a half day. That's not nearly enough time to see all of the displays.

If you had come around KC on 435 on the south side, you would have been about two miles from me. Could have "spotted" another silver one and since it's parked, get bonus points for a picture.

If you haven't been there, I highly recommend a visit to the Shelby factory. About 20 miles north of town and have a great tour.

Drive safe.

...Shark,

Your "points for photo" comment had me check back. I posted this on a different thread, but this Interstate was spotted at Leonard Harrison State Park in Pennsylvania on Oct 8.

This is cheating because it is self-spotting, but at least it comes with an interesting newbie-driven anecdote. A micro-gathering of Interstates in Houston Texas yesterday afternoon, with a dialog paraphrased like this:

Newbie: Some people have stopped their car dead in the road behind us... why??

Host: Don't worry - you'll get used to it. It happens all the time.

Newbie: What do they want?

Host: They want to know what these vehicles are because they've never seen them before, and now they are seeing two at once. Sometimes they will offer to buy your Interstate on the spot. Sometimes they just come right up to you to ask this, and some of them have no respect. No respect. I keep telling my husband not to talk to people who do that.

Spotted a 2004 Interstate parked at the Barlow. This was my first local spotting, the others were at 60mph going in opposite directions.

Sunday November 9, on Highway 1, around Seaside CA, about 11:30am. Spotted a Black one, would not venture a guess as to the year, I'm not that sure how to tell. We were headed north bound the black one was headed south bound. They waved. We waved. Interstate owners sure are a friendly bunch.

I guess it is, but on this months road trip I've driven IL to Vegas on HWY36 and I70 and didn't see a single AI! Then drove I15,I10 vegas to long beach, Ca with same results.

Feels kinda lonely ( I mean special ) lol. Mine is parked in Long Beach this week. ( I love that I can parallel park on a residential street! )

Sorry folks. I took it with my cell phone. It came out pretty good on the phone. I'll see if I can right it. I promise I'll get better at this.

That's a nice looking Sprinter, but it's not an Airstream Interstate.

Not even an RV. Note the low roof. This one doesn't even have stand-up headroom.

Does anyone have any stats on how many Interstates were produced during each model year? I looked for this info on the internet but did not find anything.

It can't be many. I live in a city of 6.5 million people and I haven't seen one yet. A few days ago, I had to drive to and from Beaumont for work purposes and I spent the entire three hours on IH-10 looking for Interstates. I saw every kind of Class A and Class C imaginable (the earliest wave of Thanksgiving mobilization was underway). I saw contraptions I hadn't ever seen before. I saw four Sprinters - two tradesman vehicles (one nondescript, the other with a 26-foot extension ladder on the roof - how the hell do they get it on and off?!), and two ambulances (one alive and screaming, the other deader than a doorknob and being transported on a flat-bed, because I'm told that's the only way that a Sprinter can be moved, so you better have a roadside protection plan that covers flatbed towing for your Interstate). But I saw no Interstates. I want to make a meme a la James Spader when he yells, "THERE'S NO DUST IN HER DUSTBUSTER" only have it read "THERE ARE NO INTERSTATES ON THE INTERSTATE" but White Palace is an old, obscure movie and I haven't yet found a suitable stock image.

I have no pics (so no bonus points) but as I drove home in our new silver AI Lounge EXT I spotted my first since being around the dealership (colonial) which was too much "fish in a barrel" to count. I was on I-287 NB near Edison,NJ. And I spotted a Silver sprinter RV (too quick to discern a make or model) travelling SB. About 12:30 pm on 11/19
