Ken,

For the meet-and-greet on Thurs night should we bring munchies to share?

And is there a potluck this year? Just want to plan/cook ahead so I don't have to leave anything early to get ready.

Thanks,

Vivian

No we will provide appetizers and not planning a pot luck - course there is always the informal Sunday night left over party :-)

Only 7 spaces remaining ! This is the only opportunity that we know of where you can stand shoulder to shoulder with professionals in the field of Airstream restoration! Imagine being able to spend 4 days in Area 63, or watch someone who builds and repairs airframes, most shops I know of don't allow you to watch the last time I checked - So I know we will have some who won't be able to attend because we always do - but for those of you signed up we sure looking forward to seeing y'all !

We attended last year. If you're on the fence about attending, you should definitely go.


The organization, expertise, preparedness, camaraderie, encouragement ... everything was marvelous, enjoyable, wonderful... I can't say enough good things about it.


All the speakers and demonstrators were well informed and answered questions with clarity and detail. No question was left unanswered. It was like a campground full of Airstream PhDs ready and willing to help.


Of the thousands of dollars that I have spent restoring my trailer, attending this event was the best spent money.


Thanks so much to the staff, contributors, sponsors, and all who help put on this event. It's very kind and aware of you to recognize the need and contribute your time.


Ami & Wm

Coming to the Vintage Academy Swap Meet THIS WEEK!

Original Vintage Light Fixtures from a 1962 Airstream Ambassador double. There are 3 double and 2 single metal box style fixtures that hung over the bed, the kitchen, the bath and the vanity/desk area. Also 2 sconce covers from the living room. Photos show the double/single, with and without lexan diffusers, the size and back and front. One of the doubles is a lovely avocado green from the kitchen

So no need 2 bring the picnic table as they have them on site. (Plus Ken said no time to sit at one) No need to haul wood as no fire rings. No need for extra jackets as the Minnesotans said its warm. And no need for much food as lots of that is covered along with the tasty Airstream food trailer Sebastiano's.

Just trying to decide whether to run to storage and bring the avocado green 62 magic chef stove and porcelain toilet to the swap meet.

Coming to the Vintage Academy Swap Meet near you TOMORROW!

One Original Vintage Magic Chef stove with oven, not avocado green as I claimed, but cute nonetheless.

And one Vintage Original Porcelain Toilet w/tank and riser. Possibly the cutest toilet ever.

Both are out of a 1962 Ambassador.
See you soon!
