"Cars" you say ?
Ohhhhh yes: I've had and worked on some pretty nice ones
like a Citroën DS ,
and a Jaguar XJ





and ( snif, snif ) an E-type







...it can still make me tear up thinking about
how I had to sell that one at a rock-bottom price
because I was in desperate need of money.



Goodness: hand me a Klenex right now, please !!!

Well - in that case, it's just a matter of me finding a place to land, and then let's decide whether everyone will supply their own trailer for conversion at first, or just set up a budget and start writing checks as I locate the proper trailer and go to work...

Go ahead - pick a number, and start lining up. As soon as I am done with my litte 1978 Dodge Sportsman 21' Class-C Mobile Traveler, and we've been to Rainbow Gathering and on to Michigan to see my boys, it's on!

Who's first in line?

Whomever is serious about this, PM me with your off-forum contact info, and let's talk turkey.

Thanks!

A DS you say? 19 or 21?
I always liked the CX and the SM, but those DS 21s were an amazing car - so far advanced for its day. I liked the 21 better than the 19 because of the dual headlights.

Having now realized that I'm in the midst of a bunch of like-minded, crazed bikers and car junkies masquerading as decent Airstreamers, I guess I can confess as well.

Eventually, I'll be able to secretly carry all of the two wheeled stuff around in the eight wheeled thing, without anyone knowing about it. (In the mean time, I've been quietly moving them around in the other two wheeled thing.) It'll be like bringing the Trojan horse into the Alumapalooza.

Yep !

I just now realize that you're the guy who made that aaaaabsoooooluuuuuteeeely beautiful dash



; I've stared long and hard on that,
having in mind to do a new dash for my Argosy.

A Bimota !!!! WOW !!!
...and what's that big-footed monstrous thing in the front ?



Some kind of S&S Evo/Twin Cam , Super G carb-, engined dragster or.......?

I always liked the CX and the SM, but those DS 21s were an amazing car - so far advanced for its day. I liked the 21 better than the 19 because of the dual headlights.

Mine was a 19 but WITH the dual headlights
with one pair turning as one turned the steering wheel.
A fan-tas-tic car, and again: one I had to sell as I was in money-need.

I've had 3 CX'es . Just flipping brilliant flying carpets.

Here's the last one I had, next to my late sixties Danish build MKP camping trailer



..that I rebuild

See Streamquest; I do like the 'engine turning' finish:





When I win the lottery I'll go get a SM.

Hi Octane,

That is a beautiful E-type! I once had a silver roadster just like it.
No more elegant machine has ever been made.

Glad to see that you are also a fan of engine turning. Nice application.

As for the bikes, the Bimota is a 1991 Tesi 1d. Most interesting with the body work removed. Pretty crazy front end isn't it? Soon to be appearing "for sale" on ebay. Too much stuff!!

The black bike is a pure custom. It has a 2.4 litre motor made by a company called R&R Machine in New Hampshire. They machine the whole thing from billet, and their work is amazing. The engine looks like a giant piece of jewelry. It should put out around 150 HP which ought to move me down the road pretty nicely. Hope to have it running in the next month or two.

O.K. Audi, You've got me questioning my sanity and basic math skills, BUT I still come up with EIGHT wheels on my moho.

2 in front, plus 4 on the drive axle, plus 2 on the tag. That makes EIGHT!!!

Whew, at least I feel a bit better about my math skills, not so sure about my sanity!!!
