Description online talks about someone who has created a Vintage Airstream Motorhome 'Hot-Rod'.

Should be interesting.

I was down there a few months ago and walked through it. It's pretty cool!

So, is "bespoke" like the trendy word of 2014?
Should i start calling things 'bespoke'? I am seeing a lot of that word lately. Actually, i think i need to figure out what it means.

It was trending in the 1600s :-)

I've heard of it for tailors, not trailers...:-)

Yeah, it's kinda a retro kitchy word coming back into vogue. Bespoked is the rich way of saying "custom or exclusive". If you ordered a Rolls-Royce like none other, produced instead buying one from the showroom floor, you could claim the Roller as being bespoked. Just saying out loud makes you feel snooty.

Cheers
Tony

I hate those fragmented shows with a million commercials. Then they spend half the time recapping what they said during the last fragment. Fell asleep half way through. Did I miss anything?

Not really. I was most interested in the Chevy 502 upgrade, but they never really talked about except for a few one second flashes of the install.

I saw it in person. That 502 looks really sweet. But for the $24k they claimed, I think I would have gone with a diesel drivetrain. They do nice work!
