I'm giving you at Airstream Forums a thumbs up. I am a new member after just purchasing a 1966
Streamline 19' Prince. I was looking for information on and about this trailer and strangely enough, there isn't much out there, so I looked on the Airstream website and saw that you welcome Vintage Kin
I guess times are changing. There was a time that all Harley Davidson owners looked down on other bikers, even if you were driving an Indian. Most all bikers seem to accept each other now with respect and often a thumbs up across the lines.
My personal feelings about that is: With vintage trailers, they're each an American Icon and whether it be a Silver Bullet or a Canned Ham, there's much to give me pleasure just seeing them on the road. A few years back, I traveled from Tennessee to Alaska with a friend when he purchased a 1985 Airstream Motorhome. What a joy to get the positive remarks from folks driving a half million dollar land yacht when we stopped at rest areas in our 20K classic.
I also own and drive a '38 Ford Streetrod. There are those who look down on anything that is not/was not left in it's original form, but upgrading the running gear, to me, is an improvement. I've owned others with a stock engine and "push & pray" breaks; they can be a nightmare on the highways. As for me, I like all vintage tin, and appreciate you excepting me as a Vintage Kin
I sold my '56 Ford Fairlane Club Sedan to purchase this Streamline and hope to also buy a vintage truck to tow it with. Who knows, maybe it will be a streetrod truck. There are things to say about comfort and safety (A/C, power to go, steer, and stop, etc.)
These are just my personal feelings, but thanks for the welcome; God Bless and I hope to see you on the road, Bill
PS: I tired to publish a picture or two by clicking "Manage Attachments" but it doesn't seem to be working for me. Could it be that Manage attachments does not like the vintage kin
