Hi, I'm half of the couple from Idaho Falls, Idaho, and we still have the number: 2000-2012 so far. We hope to have it much longer still...

Number 21329 belonged to Raymond & Mildred Swires of Ft. Myers, FL in 1973
Hi Mike,

Remember we met at the Intnl last summer? You were kind enough to loan us the manual for your Overlander for us to copy since we had just acquired a 64 Overlander, we really appreciate that: thanks again and another congrats on your win in the competition--well deserved.

To topic: would love to know who had #2948 in 1959, it is a 1959 Overlander with dbl axles and the International (globe) badges, and if there were any caravans. Seems like with that heavier setup, the owners might have been planning some caravans. Thanks!

Vivian

Sorry Mike: just realized your gorgeous baby is not an Overlander but a 63 Tradewind!

Mary & I are in Florida for a few weeks and don't have our old directories with us. If someone else hasn't responded by the time I get home, I will be happy to look it up for you.

That is interesting, I was told by the WBCCI office that the number was not currently assigned to anyone. They have reserved the number for me as they are currently processing my membership package.

Hi Vivian,
I responded to your email inquiry outside of Airforums earlier today. Don't remember the details, but #2948 was first assigned in 1959 to a couple from Salt Lake City, Utah. That couple (and #2948) is listed as having participated on the 1960 European caravan, so it is almost a certainty that a 1959 Overlander International bearing the old number 2948 was itself on the 1960 European Caravan!

AWCHIEF,

You scared me to death: we have 8796 all over trailers and I thought we had somehow lost the number! Thanks, Reinergirl!

Wow! I was so excited to read your email, Joe! It is so completely awesome to think that that Overlander was on the European caravan; I'm going to see if I can find photos from the caravan that might show 2948 and try to close the gaps in its history. Thanks a lot; I'll redouble my efforts to wrest it from the hands of the foreclosers!

I do apologize, some times my fingers move faster than my brain. I could claim old farts disease but that is a pretty lame excuse.

Awchief,

I can forgive anyone who has a '64 Bambi (sigh). And besides, you're not the only one with OFD; I was so worried at the idea of losing 8796 because it took the first six years of membership to remember what the danged number was! No telling how long it would take to remember a new one.... I'll bet aluminum on the brain has a lot to do with it. LOL

See you at the International in Sedalia? I'd love to see your Bambi.

Vivian

Vivian, not going to be able to make it this year. This time next year I will be on my second retirement and plan on hitting the road for a while seeing this great country. Hopefully I can make it then. Along with seveal of the other major rallies around the country.

If you are anywhere near Y'stone on your odyssey, you'll be close to us, give us a call and come for a visit!
