So. Florida newbee!

Going to pick up my newly aquired 66 Tradewind this Friday! Sight unseen, so wish me luck. I'm confident and resourceful, but have been known to "Bite more than I can chew" looking for a medium scale restore. Hoping no real heavy lifting requuired. Will be my first...

Greetings, house! And congratulations. Even if you aren't ready to run with the Tradewind before the Florida rally in January, come on up anyway, Airstream or not. We would love to meet you.

Also a So. Fla. Newbee!

We live in Miami and we are going to pick up our "new" 68 sovereign next Wed. My wife saw it briefly and I have only seen a few pics. We are hoping we don't have a big project. Good luck with yours! Phil
