Hey Bill,
Your situation sounds familiar to many of us here. How about starting your own thread or a blog about the restoration you guys are doing?

Bill it's really quite easy. If I can do it anyone can. In a way you already are. If you can post a reply you can certainly start a new one. Just go to the forum that your interest is in and hit the button, on the top left hand side of the other threads. Tittle your thread then ask your question like you have been doing already. Bill I am only using two fingers to type this. Good luck welcome to the forum you certainly have a head start over some here you already have an Airstream. I didn't have one until 8 months after I first logged on to this forum. Now I am looking for my second one. They do tend to multiply.

Almost always sunny here unless there is a hurricane bearing down on you. And then it's time to hook up the burb and roll. So far I've been very lucky.

I saw a nice looking Interstate at St. John's Bank in O'fallon, MO today. Blue in color.

I had to travel to Tucson and back today at work. I did not see any Airstreams on the way down from Phoenix, but it's pretty dark at 5am when I started. On the return trip I saw 2 headed toward Tucson. The first was a mid 70's Argosy which was painted a dark brown on the bottom and it had a bike or bikes mounted on the rear bumper. Right after that I spotted a newer model Airstream that was around 17' long. Both were seen on I-10 near Eloy at around 2pm.

Minuet 7.3 Sighting

I really did a double-take this morning while heading for Springfield, Illinois when I observed a very nice 1979 Argosy Minuet 7.3 Metre with Spring Green trim heading East toward Mt. Vernon, Illinois shortly after 10 a.m. The Argosy was traveling East on Interstate 64 -- I was so surprised to see a Minuet 7.3 Metre that I didn't even notice the tow vehicle!

I know it's not an AS, but it is pretty cool. It's all aluminum and I see it nearly every day. It never moves. Looks to be in pretty good shape.

What brand is it, Drums? I can see a name on the front but can't read it.

Next time I go by I'll take a closer look. I really like the tail lights on it they are pretty cool. The body looks like it is made with corogated AL siding...

It's a Streamline. I think that size was called Prince (19'). It's an old one mid to late 50s.
