Thanks for posting.
The exterior looked good, I believe it was a 1955. The sign in the window said they were asking $28,500 for it. We couldn't see how the interior was because the lot where it was for sale was closed. It was gone a few days later.

Barely have the Cruiser shined up and you're drooling over one too small for you to turn around in? You've been talking to Bruce again?

David - Bruce? Yeah, Team Airstream Rescue made a commando attack on Lake Charles this past Friday & Saturday, relieving the town of one sliver beauty to add to the famous Wood Collection. Me, I've just always been drawn to Southern beauties. But fear not, my collection is complete unless I win the Lotto that is .

How much for that little trailer? I like it. My Pathfinder would probably tow it.

Saw an early 60's Overlander in Lake Charles, LA yesterday, west bound on I-10. Looked to be in great shape. Door held closed with a bungie :-) .TV was a white 1-ton dualie with a spare set of tires in the back. Somebody has a winner there!!

I spotted a pretty polished and shining 16-18' airstream travel trailer on South I81 around mm 115 around 6pm yesterday. I didn't get a look at the TV because I was to busy looking at the pretty shine on that Airstream!

Talked to a young family this morning at the Wal-Mart in Clinton, MO. They have a 34' and were headed down to Branson.

Made round trip drive from DFW to Bowling Green, Ky this weekend... saw only two AS during the three day trip. It was a moving trip, so there was a uhaul trailer behind the Tundra, not Thumper. But the good news is that if you are in the Bowling Green area, you will be able to now hear our son Emil on WKU Public Radio in Bowling Green.

Our two sightings....... first was headed west bound on 1-40 between Memphis and Little Rock on Saturday morning. Red tow vehicle, might have been a 25-28 foot newer AS. Olga made the spot, so I didn't get to give the headlight salute.

Other sighting

Black tow vehicle, could have been a Nissan ... this one I spotted so gave them the headlight salute and waved like a mad man from 100 yards north.......

The most awesome sight and sound of the weekend was scores of African-American motorcycle riders headed east from Memphis Sunday afternoon... tried to see online where they had been because it was too early for anyone to be coming home from Sturgis and they were headed east. Anyone know?

pardon my AS ignorance, but what is the "headlight salute"...or is that just a reference to flashing high beams at the AS owner?

Knowing this, I frequently flash my lights at speedsters coming toward me when cops AREN'T down the road. They usually wave to thank me. :-)

When I see a speed trap and a dangerously fast driver coming toward me - no flash from me...
