New Airstreamer - 72 Ambassador

Hello All,
My name is Tharon. And my wife Connie and I have decided to visit our great outdoors. I just wanted to introduce myself and let you all know how much your posts influenced my purchase of my new 1972 Ambassador. I appreciate all the shared knowledge and down-home type talks in most of the forum posts. I have purchased all that I need to strip and polish my trailer and then we will depart on our journey to Arizona and then Alaska starting from Louisiana. Great to be a member and will be posting again soon (and often).

Thanks for the welcome and yes we are excited. Have you ever heard of an Airstream magazine called "The Airstream Story"? There were two of them in my Airstream when we bought it three weeks ago and I found them very informative. However, the two copies we have are for the 1975 and 1978 years. Shows vintage pictures and they are great. I sure would like to find one for 1972.

The Airstream Story is an advertising tool published by Airstream that began sometime in the mid-to-late-1960s and continued at least through the 1970s. Periodically, you will find these brochures offered for sale on E-Bay.

Good luck with your coach!

Kevin
