OooOoo... Now, it's hard to tell from a photo that actually IS from the '50s (or is it '60s? IIRC, that is a '59 Caddidiliac towing it) but to me, the 2011 shot is shinier

[Edit:] Well, duh; the photo is dated 1963

"Pennsylvania manufactured the first custom, vanity or personalized license plate in 1931"

Check out the sign on the tongue.
I'll make a wild guess that you both have like this "timeless" look pretty much all the time and not just for the vintage open house. Nice!

Thanks

I know it is my fault for choosing "timeless" as a theme now as I am being pulled into a time warp continuum of past, future and present and am even more disoriented then usual!

Great shot.

I am so glad that you posted this photo, Steve....

We were revisiting your thread last night and I spent some time again with this photo.

One of my all time favorites long before this contest. And always will be.

Anyone that has not read Steve's Thread please check it out. As I've said before......AMAZING !

That makes 17 Airstreams in your photo. Nice group photo!

There are some of the best family/friend and group photos I have ever seen of Airstreamers out and about. I hope Airstream Marketing people are checking out the monthly photo contests and getting in touch to use these photos.

If not they are missing out!

Thanks nautiqueman

I love the t-shirts. I don't remember seeing any with triple-axle Airstreams before. Very nice.

Sure are a lot of them named Mary Kate. Unusual.
