Can you imagine organizing a 100+ Airstream rally? Not to mention aiming for 150 Airstreams next year? Well, Ken Johansen, along with his merry band of energetic assistants (Suzanne, Uwe, the Polks, Lewster, others) make the magic happen. Here's Ken at the 2012 Balloon Fiesta--100 Airstream owners couldn't be happier that he's an Airstream Hero.

To second the motion of Ken J as all-around Airstream hero, I present the crowds at his Restoration Rallies, who come from far and wide for this very special event.

I'll give my vote for celebrity status to Levon, a true Southern gentleman with a quick wit and a willingness to share his vast and varied knowledge at the annual restoration rally.

In these photos Levon is demonstrating the two most important tools for restoring a vintage Airstream. (One of these tools he actually made himself).

I don't think those photos are representative of Levon in the natural element, uhh perhaps the second.

Everytime I have met him he was a shade of gray from polishing wheel fuzz, rouge and tripoli and oxidized aluminum stuff.

These are the guys currently doing the work on my trailer - Colin Hyde (center), Reed, and Bob of Colin Hyde Trailer Restorations! Celebrities for sure and certainly my heroes! Although they require frequent bribing with cookies

January 2013 Photo Contest -- Airstream "Celebrities"

Greetings to Everyone!

All of the photos were great as were the tag lines. I knew that this thread was going to be difficult to judge as there are so many "Airstream Celebrities". In my opinion all of the photos were worthy of winning, but since I must name a winner, I have, after due deliberation, determined that:

Alumaholic (Ken L) -- Artie and Sue McDowell

is the winner with Honorable Mention going to:

C_Lewis 77 -- His Five-Year-Old Daughter
Vinstream -- Pee Wee
jimlawther -- Sean and Christy Michael

The choice was quite difficult!!

Congratulations to Alumaholic!!

Kevin
