Uh oh

Sorry, You got gyped and clipped. You should call the cops that was a robbery. But I hate to see a guy ripped off like that so I'll take it off your hands.

That is going to be a show stopper when you are finished. Congradulations on a very sweet rig.

Baby Wee Winds in the Wild

Baron:

Your finding an adult Wee Wind roaming in the woods got my jucies flowing and inspired me to look around here for some trailers. I can't believe my luck! My Wee Wind, Ruby, must have been having a good time while I was away recently, because I just spotted -- hush now -- three newborn Wee Winds quietly nesting in the shrubs along my alleyway, within earshot of their mother. I snuck up on them and snapped this photo before they scampered away on their tiny wheels -- so cute!

I'm curious: what is its serial number on the plate next to the door? Thanks,
The plate is gone. The title has a number but I am at work now so I will look at it tomorrow.

I am sure I will have a LOT of questions soon. I just got it home and had to go to work. So I will start cleaning it up and see what I got. Thanks again for all the responses.
Cheers,
Baron

LOL

When I brought it home, a neighbor came over and said it looked like a space alien. So I sent my wife (who is out of town) an e-mail with a picture and the caption was "The Alien's are Coming". HA HA. I'm sure I will be getting a phone call REAL soon.

I should probably be posting this in the Wee Wind section but there does not seem to be much action there. Some Questions I have:
Does anyone have an idea how many Wee Winds were made/ still on the road today?
I don't have any of the "Airstream" badges, is there a source for the correct ones?
My front & back windows appear to be plexiglass or lexan. Is this correct?
Do I have to name my Wee Wind ?

Congratulations! I used to live in Green Cove Springs and attended Clay County High School. You have a lot of hard work and FUN ahead of you. Plus, I am sure, hours and hours online chatting it up with other members here on the forums.

Baron, the Weewind as terrific, the coolest. I've always had a fondness for the art deco meets space alien look of those 40's trailers. I can't wait to see it at the Florida get-together. You are bringing it, aren't you . . . . please, please? Supreme congratulations on your find.

BTW, Fred, the baby Weewinds are darling. I want one when it is ready to leave the nest!
