Vintage Anomaly on eBay

This should never have been created:

A fine Vintage Airstream was harmed in the making of this motorhome. I'm sure the sellers father who created it was proud of his creation, but this is just wrong (IMHO). In case one of you wants to rescue this "conversation piece", check out this eBay auction: 270045029364.

That's about as bad as it can get. Can someone say "Good for parts" and let this thing go away.....

"And what exactly does the "B" stand for????"

Motorhomes are classed as A, B or C. A's are bus style, B's are converted vans, and C's are built on a truck cab/chassis.

Actually, it looks like a pretty good job. Would look better if the A/S part were newer, tho.
