I'm trying to think what you'd need to pull a 1961 $147,000 Airstream. Maybe my neighbor's 1949 Caddy just might do.

Let's see...the Caddy is worth $20 - 25K....and is just as pretty! $147,900.....really? It's gorgeous, but it think it's really not for sale.

It would keep the aircraft construction theme as it was powered by a modified helicopter motor if my understanding is correct. . . .

You are correct, but seeing as how there are only 40 some in existance, I don't think I'd put it out there.
