New member, New (to me) Caravel

Well, time for a new forum and more fun restoration research. As given in better detail in this post.....

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f145...vel-72269.html

.... I'm going to be the next owner of a '65 Caravel that's been in the family since the late 60's. It will be a while until it get here, the Airstream is currently in South Dakota, but I'm in NY. So likely I'll just be lurking around and reading/researching until it gets here.

Figured I would drop in and say hello though, looks like a good group of folks here.

-Hans

Welcome Hans.. It is great to have you here..
... And having one more Airstream in the area is a real bonus since there doesn't seem to be that many Airstreams on Long Island.
I am in Bay Shore..

Thanks for the kind welcome. It's easy to spot a friendly forum, and this one definitely seems to be a friendly, mellow bunch of folks so far. It's a nice distraction from some of my more "energetic" hobby forums.

Bay Shore, huh? Wow, a REAL close neighbor. This is my first time owning a trailer of my own, I'll probably harass you with some questions about how to properly get it registered and inspected out here. But that's a ways off, I'd probably forget it between then and now

And you guys are right, it's going to be a long anxious winter waiting for it.

-Hans

Howdy and welcome to airforums.com, Hans! Can't wait to hear more about your history with that great li'l trailer.

In the meantime, don't you have some old photos from " back in the day" that you could post of it? We are picture-hungry hounds here!

Congrats! What a joy to have a family heirloom And a Caravel no less! When I bought my Caravel people kept telling me it would only be a matter of time until I traded it for something bigger. That was 8 years ago, and I still think it's the perfect size. Sounds like your family must have thought the same. Welcome!

I don't have any here currently, going to try and get some from Dad in the meantime. The irony is that I recently found some old photos of his, and just sent them BACK to Dad about a month ago, a few of which had the airstream in it. Didn't even think to scan them first.
