Classic Airstream motorhome still serves as astronaut limo

I'm sure this video has been posted before, but here it is again for those that missed it.
I know this is a picture thread, but a video is lots of pictures strung together right

Thats AWESOME!
Thanks for posting that!

The only thing I didn't like, was what sounded to me like an exhaust manifold leak as the Capt took it for a spin....

Ditto. That was great! Thanks for posting. I really enjoyed it.
Not sure if that was an exhaust leak or just a lack of pilot training.

Look! It fits in my alley driveway....

Took out the Airstream for some repair work yesterday, got some problems repaired, found some new ones, took out 5 boards in my backyard fence getting the beast out. But, I'm getting better at getting this back into my drive.

Don't bother; if you drive too late and try to land in the dark or don't inspect the site upper and lower, you'll still back into something.
By the way, I thought this a picture thread, not a nuts and bolts thing.

kitchen picture

Decided the kitchen needed a bit of a makeover. So bought a piece of stainless steel backsplash from these people.

Then I start to think about other stuff, like a new counter top, cooktop, sink, remaining kitchen walls to be back-splashed, and whether or not to put the spice rack back in. If nothing else I'll put in a new cooktop. These beast are so moorish

Still interested in the Nutone stuff crazeevw?

Not only for backing up... I wouldn't be able to drive mine without it. I have no blind spots with it. I also know how far I am away from the cars that don't let me over. Haha.

I like to use my back-up camera driving down the road to peak at my Harley. It also comes in handy at toll bridges to make sure people aren't getting too close to my bike (I had someone bump into it driving through downtown Brooklyn, NY) I find the camera useful for backing up but the longer I drive this beast the less I use it for that. I tend to rely more on my properly adjusted mirrors and just plain old sticking my head out of the window. I think the best usage of the camera is backing up to a trailer. I can put the ball right in the hitch using the camera.

As far as the cars that don't want to let you over. I learned from New York bus drivers, if you start coming into their lane they get out of your way!
