I'll keep check on the AS's, however, except for that one trip with the special built AS's, I'll bet China has seen very few of them.

As for the flea market, the one at Sarasota is a well organized, and very well attended one, although, most lookers (the last time I went) were not looking at doing complete rebuilds or restorations. They are a good bunch of buyers, however. If we were gonna be here, we definitely would go.

New Glass/More Polish

Replaced all windows. Two more days of polishing and painting, and we will be headed to the Fla. State Rally. Need a break from the cold.

Hello.. Looking forward to meeting you also... have you left for Fla yet or are you already here?? I don't wish that drive here with all the snow that is in New York and Penn. Are you parking in the back or with the vintage units?? Where is Avonton?? We have our Argosy in storage near Stratford.. know Mike Hodgins??

Tour of the 60 Pacer

Rick,
The Pacer is available for a tour most anytime, not just on open house that is on Sat. This unit that my wife and I are redoing is going to be for sale at the rally. Spread the word if someone is looking for a small unit. Hope to see you there.
Levon

Its almost time ...

The big rally starts next week. The VAC will have happy hour every evening in the VAC parking area. Bring a snack to share. We will also have a covered dish dinner on Friday. Weather looks like it will be nice 70s - 50s.

I'll also give two VAC presentations during the rally that were developed by our historian, Fred Coldwell:
1932-1957 Airstreams
1958-1968 Airstreams
These presentations point our the subtle and beautiful features of our Airstreams as they evolved over time and help you identify an Airstream by these features.

The presentations won't be on your schedule but I'll sign up for a room/time and have it announced during the evening announcements and at the happy hours.

Forum members are welcome!

We won't be there Friday night for the covered dish. (Stinking Job!) We should be there early Saturday morning. What time are the happy hours?

About 4:30 or 5:00 PM. That gives time to eat before the nightly program which starts at 7PM.
