Hi 2Air,

Actually, learned that it used to be Dave Schumann's unit when it was a shell, then he sold it to Bob Wheeler, who then had it done at David Winick's.

But, I saw the certificate of registration - it's put in Airstream's name....

Day 3

Sorry not lots of pics today... Was tied up with work all morning, left the hotel late... Caught the factory tour, which was my first time. The tour was nice as the factory production was shut down this week, so we were able to wander and see more things up close than we normally would.

I'll take one next week when they are in production and see how it compares... Sorry - to cameras alowed!!

Sorry for the bad limited pics. The shop was closed by the time I got to see here... the weekend has begun at JC....


Old sealant is being cleaned off the ribs. Top segments are tacked in.

DaPlumber is seen looking in from the outside...

don't quote me,

but some of the original bucked rivets are hidden and remain intact, so it's the surface rivets that are the issue.

the overlaid panels (in that lower section) aren't exactly like the originals...

so they are attached over them and each layer of skin provides some structural integrity...

that's my lame understanding of the lower front sections...

except for the bondo layer that is used too...

good info bandit!

i knew he had on old unit being rehab'd, but thought he was doing it himself...

that's funny about the reg' perhaps these guys have business expenses for aluminum...

hey since u are there for so many days, take a day trip over to new bremen, about 25 miles straight west.

the bicycle museum there is WORLD CLASS, and the erie canal is there, along with some nicer spots to eat...

are there any new shirts or must have trinkets in the a/s store?

cheers

Thanks for all the cool pics. JC is a good visit. We drove by the plant for many years on the way to Celina and then all of a sudden we got the bug to buy one! Took the plant tour last August and were Streaming by October. Speaking of all us Buckeyes. Has anyone noticed the Michigan Wolverine flag flying inside the plant? It's back in the area where the assembled panels meet up with the chassis. Is it still flying from the rafters? Please tell me it isn't so!

Next week we're do for service, so I'll be taking them a Buckeye flag to fly in the Ohio plant..http://www.airforums.com/forums/images/icons/icon7.gif Shake and bake!

Cheers,

yakman

Great place to eat (I worked there in college). Continue following SR 47 thru town from there (it winds around so watch the signs). After you cross the Great Miami River there will be an entrance to Tawawa Park on your right. A great place to drive thru and walk the dogs. If you continue out of town on SR 47 you will drive about 7 miles or so to the little village of Port Jefferson. It is an old canal town. About mid-way thru the village, on the right, at the end of a short street is a restaurant called Hussy's. It is right along the river so ask for a table by a window. Another great place to eat. Wonderful chicken. Head down I-75 to Dayton and visit Wright Patterson Airforce Base. They have a fantastic museum...you can get lost in that museum for a day easily. They have an IMAX theater. If I can think of other ideas of things to do I will let you know.
Tom
Hi Tom,

Thanks for the pointers.. We ate at Spot yesterday, Prim and us each had a burger, onion rings, and I had a malt while she had a cream soda, topped with one slice of cream pie and one slice of custard pie... after that gut busting dinner, we went back to the hotel and passed out.... Not sure if it was the food, the stress of the week, or combination...

Today we went took the girls to Tawawa Park, and walk a darn long time - its 192 acres!!! HUGE park for any city, let alone the size of Sidney!!

We tried to eat at Hussey's, but they are only open for dinner, so we headed back to Sidney

We ate at the In Good Taste Cafe, where we each and a sandwich. Prim had to have their coffee, and I had to have a beer. Note to others: They have LOTS of beer selection and LOTS of wine selection... There is outside seating so the girls chilled out next to us under the table... Great place to eat and drink. Heavy emphasis on drink...

Jackson Center has a their annual Community Days going on this weekend...Way cool small town festival - petting zoo, rides, food, bands, and a Car Bike and Truck Show in the Airstream Parking lot...


Here are some pics of the Car Bike and Truck Show:

A few favorites

I'd love to have a few of these cars...

Does anyone know if the Red on the Lincon Continental was a factory option?? I've only seen black, but I like the red!!

That is a fairly new establishment...never been there. As a kid, that was my dentist office. If you listen carefully you can probably still hear the cries of small children. :-0

Across the street...

As I looked across the street from the Car& Truck show, look was peeking out in the lot....The Pan America..

I did notice the 16" wheels... I forgot to snap a pic of the axle wheel rating sticker, but I'll try to get that later tonight or tomorrow...

Try the Veranda for a Great Meal

Hi Kevin,

I am really enjoying your write-up!

We were there last year for the tour and stayed a couple of days. The guys at JC are fantastic!

We had a fantastic dinner across the main road from the Shell? station in a Victorian house. I think they are open Thursday - Sunday. The name of the place is the Veranda. I would drive at least 100 miles out of my way to dine there.

You may want to try it for a more "gourmet" type meal.

I have already (2x) in one day on Thur, once on Friday, etc....

I saw Bob Wheeler in there for lunch with a group after the "Carve your own road" phone interview.

The food there is SOOO Good. Even eating outside is nice too...

CAFE VERANDAH - Home

In speaking with the staff, they stated that 90% of their business is from folks at Airstream (out of town customers) getting work done or passing thru for a visit.
