Looking in South Florida.

Joined yesterday. After 12 yrs. we have the time and financial ability to redo a vintage. Looking to see if there is anyone in South Florida (Miami, Ft. Lauderdale & the Keys) that has a vintage that we can see and ask some relevant questions. Thank you for your help. If this is not the proper forum in which to post this please point us in the right direction.

Hello charlieward, I'm not close to you (Ft Myers), but would be more than happy to help in any way I can. My project is a '55 Flying Cloud, in which a shell-off restoration was performed. You can see my progress in pics here: Member's Photos - Photo Gallery
Contact me through the forums if you desire to talk shop.

Hi Chris...I live in Naples and have been actively looking to purchase a vintage airstream to restore....I am very interested in doing a great deal of the work myself and would love to chat with you! Would also love to see your '55 Flying Cloud as I am quite interested in the 50's era Flying Clouds.....I am brand new to the forum. Also, good luck charlieward Thanks, Cathy

Hello Cathy, I apologize for my delay in responding to your post. So your interested in a 50's restoration project! That's a good choice from a style perspective, since up to about '58 they had the thirteen paneled end caps. The problem though, is that they are getting more difficult to locate than newer (60's and on) units, and fetch a higher price. Anyway, give me a ring, and we'll go from there. Take care...

chris

Thank you Chris!! Yes, I have been actively searching and will continue! I would absolutely love to see your flying cloud in person and pick your brain a bit if you have any available time...I am in Naples and am usually free. This is a brand new endeavor for me so all input is much appreciated!! Thanks, Cathy
