Talking Born again Airstreamer

Im back, left the Airstream life 6 years ago and just could not stay away. No matter what I did it just always was on my mind. So last week on my employers classified site a 70's something Airstream popped up For Sale, ad read will make a nice deer camp (gotta save this one) so I went and looked, bought, and brought home.
I have to admit got a huge job ahead not like the Peppy I re-did 8 years ago, almost like a full monty, the usual floor rot, some doors work some dont, leaks here and there, but it does still have the 8 track, no major dents, tires held air, no sag.
Now to come up with a name for the beast!!

If it is the same trailer I looked at for an out of state forum member last summer, you do have some work to do. It was in Tupelo. Interior was all there, but old and "tired". Just wondering, is there a new panel riveted on the front lower right side with steel shank pop rivets?. Anyway, just curious. Good luck and send me a PM when you get started working on it (with the heat this week I'd wait a while), I'm in Tupelo often and would love to see the trailer.
