For those interested, I just posted a few more pictures in the members' photo section.. search under vintage, liner. I couldn't stay away, so I drove the three hours to go see her again. Also it's on the way to visit my husband's 102 yr. old mom, so it's a good excuse for a slight detour. All in all, after looking every night on this forum, I can now say that the shell is quite good. It's pretty straight and the blemishes are minimal when I look around at other trailers. (character). I have my work cut out for me, but it's going to be a fun learning experience and rewarding, I'm certain. Need to learn some things, for sure, but hope to figure it out through what's already posted, and if not I hope I don't bother folks by asking questions that might seem a bit silly. Ah well... somebody's got to do it!

Airdreamers=I'm in Safety Harbor for today- leaving later this afternoon to go back to Saint Augustine.
Bob34787= I would have liked to meet Frank but he has never been there every time I have... I would imagine he'd be an interesting person.

Actually, yes!! She was all excited about it! She was quite the adventuress in her day. Interesting note: she flew in planes with her brother and "lucky" Lindbergh - who was her brother's friend !! She's all for it.

Have you seen these pictures?

A FLA neighbor of yours. While your there you might check with him. I really like what he has done and the results. "Capntom" here on the Forums.http://www.airforums.com/photos/brow...mageuser=35123

Gator

Silverfoxrae,

I'd be willing to help you out....if I could ever realize my dream day job of becoming a Gator Wrassler at the St. Augustine Alligator Farm. But, I'm too afraid of losing too many matches and people looking at my hands and calling me "Stubby." So, my wife says no gator wrasslin' for me

Seriously though, I love St. Augustine. Got engaged to my lovely bride there (who is now my wife of 12 years). It's a nice place.

Best of luck with your Airstream. I think it's awesome. I'm still trying to buy my grandpa's '58 Traveler which he refuses to sell. But I like your '47 even better!

take care,

JG~ good luck getting that '58! Maybe someday soon we'll meet up at a rally or the like and can swap tours The Alligator Farm is a cool place, but I wouldn't offer my hands to chance, either! If you're ever in town, give a shout.

47

Just wanting to know. How is the the 47 coming? My wife and I have a 48 Caddilac Sedanette that I've been working on forever. What a fantasy a 47 Airstream behind would be to tow behind. I'll watch your trailer project and work on that dream.

We're still waiting on the title. Then the holidays got in the way, but I'm hoping that it comes together soon. I'm getting anxious like a kid waiting for Santa.

Those types of combos are very very cool. A real treat at Demming last fall was the 58/58 combo I post a picture of here.

After I recover from this resto, then maybe I can consider finding a vintage TV too... It sure would look awesome What kind of vintage vehicle would be safe towing a 22' trailer in, say, the Shenandoahs? (one of my favorite areas). A fantasy car of mine has always been a Chevy Nomad.
