Mmmm, Cutlass Convertible. There is a really cool 1950 Olds torpedo coupe on ebay right now... souped up like it would've been in the '50s, but still totally stock looking, original interior and rebuilt Hydramatic. There is also a sweet 1951 Ford V8 sedan, looks origianal too. And, two '65 Imperial convertibles. Sigh.

Hey Barb, have we met? My old "studio" in the house I just sold WAS filled with the interior from the Globie until earlier this year. Now I have to use the studio to earn some dough.

Post I always wanted a Longhorn!!!

Hello from California! I must admit I am quite jealous of your Longhorn...I have been keeping my eye out for a 72 for a while and boy are the scarce. I like the body style and I am 6 feet tall, so the longer bed is a big plus. Too bad you can't get the fotos to work...I'd like to see it! I'm pretty new to this forum and have had my Argosy for about 6 months...I'll try to get a little picture or two up asap. Take care of that truck okay?

Michelle

Another reason to get some AS forums decals to help us identify each other. Maybe you can make the Beverly Beach Rally in October.....we'll be there, and maybe we can see your AS then!


Actually Jordandvm, you met my inlaws it sounds like. That is their set up and iirc they attended that rally. Thus far events have conspired to keep us from attending an event.

Put on a set of spiders w/ beauty rings for the 58 ranch wagon, as well as a nice old pair of beauty rings for the 67 globetrotter. Changes the look on the wagon, makes it look a little tougher, and the rings on the trailer wheels make it look complete.

It makes people take a second look which is always neat about subtle changes. I noticed with the trailer that when I put the polished 5 spokes on that match the car people now stop and do a bit of a double take. Next year I might try wide white's all around, and have a spare set of really old chromies that are polished up that would also look good. All swap meet acquisitions, nothing more than 10 bucks a wheel. Enjoy your wagon. Barry

Wow! That looks good. I'll bet you are quite the sight heading down the road. You sort of wonder how can it get any better than this?

Very Cool

Hi, I'm new here, I don't have an airstream but I truly think they are great. My interest was in Vintage cars as Tow Vehicles, and I'm impressed by what I see in these threads! You have inspired me to find that Vintage sedan (or maybe rag top ) and get hauling!

Welcome to the forums - I was at a rally near Bellingham a few weeks ago with a bunch of vintage tow vehicles. They looked absolutely great! Twice the opportunity to polish.

Let's have a polishing party: I'll supply the trailer and buffing supplies. BYOB (bring your own buffer)

Hi Janet. I had my '57 pontiac Safari stationwagon at Deming. I use it to pull the '51 Flying Cloud. Our friends with us were pulling their 17' Boler with their '35 Ford and they will be pulling their Award trailer with their '54 Ford wagon. I am hoping that several more from our club make the Deming campout next year. They include a 33 Chev that pulls a small Boler/Bigfoot, a 36 Ford that pulls a small Boler, a 38 Plymouth that pulls a 17' Boler, a '55 Chev that pulls a Beachcomber, a '36 chev that pulls a Trillium, a '57 Ford Retractable that pulls a Boler as well as several others but these are the ones who hang out with us. We enjoy both the car and the trailer hobbies and the two are dynamite when enjoyed together. I know my login name is confusing for many on the forum thinking I have a '57 Safari Airstream but it's the car that's the Safari and I'd of killed to find a similar Airsteam until my FC came along. We love it and wouldn't part with it. It was good to meet you there. For those thinking of towing a vintage trailer with a vintage car I can tell you from experience that it adds a whole new level to the experience. It's not without it's challenges - old cars need maintenance and gas mileage is less than most tow vehicles today, but it's our way of expressing ourselves. Barry

Vintage tow

We have a 1968 Ford F100 4x4. It was originaly equiped with a 300 Streight 6 with many miles. In preparation for towing our 1946 Kit Tear Drop trailer to the first International Tear Drop meet in Minden Nebraska this summer I made a change and installed a 1993 Ford 5.0 liter fuel injected V8 engine. To make sure it would run well I installed the complete Bronco wiring harness, computer etc, bucket seat, senter console, and instruments. Shortly after My wife bought our 1963 Bambi Airstream. So the truck was well equipped to pull the new to us trailer.

Thanks

Thanks for the welcome! I'm a mechanic by trade, I look forward to the future challenges on classic tow vehicle upgrading and maintainence. Starting with Power disc brakes, fuel injection and better electrics. However for now it will be a nice dream!
