Airstream Disaster

I haven't posted in a while now... been distracted with other projects, but I recently purchased a new Tennsmith stomp shear and several sheets of aluminum to get started in the interior work.

However, all those plans came to a screeching halt Saturday evening with the arrival of a very strong gust of wind. So now, I'll be offering whatever parts I can save to who ever might need them.

This WAS at 1976 31' Airstream... now, is only a pile of fond memories and lost potential.

If you think you need any parts, please send an email to

No one was hurt in the making of these photos...

OMG! So sorry to see this. My '72 Trade Wind project sits under a 150 year old massive tree. It gives me nightmares!

Thanks everyone... my wife thinks I can salvage the front half and turn the back half into a patio for a mobile coffee shop. Boy, does she think outside of the box!
