When I was in Jackson Center three weeks ago, unknowingly chatting with artlink from this Fourm during the factory tour with Don, I noticed three old 1947-1950 Airstream Liners apart behind the Service Center. All were being being renewed. One belonged to a customer who was having the detached frame modernized and strengethened before the body was remounted, an in-house full monty. A second belonged to Airstream's new President, Bob Wheeler. The third belonged to another customer.
Airstream's recent Prez, Dicky Riegel, had his 1955
Flying Cloud redone by the Service Center last year. It was finished by the end of the 2005 Homecoming and was very, very droolworthy. I think its fantastic that Airstream's Presidents choose to have vintage Airstreams refurbished for their personal use. It shows a great sense of history and pride in product at the top of the company.
