I have a 62 Ambassador which was on this caravan. These docs need to be preserved before they are lost to time. Most of the participants on this caravan have passed on and as far as I can tell there are only 3 Airstreams, including mine, that were on this caravan that are accounted for. I would die for copies, and would volunteer to be caretaker of these documents if necessary. The Vintage Airstream Club idea above may be the best solution. There is also a map in "Thank you Marco Polo".

I would be especially interested in anything you find on my trailer. It's WBCCI # was 6472. It belonged to the Ross's from California on the Caravan.

I saw this medallion a couple of times before, but thought it was just a logo. I would give up my ponytail to have a medallion. I've thought about having a decal made up or paint a copy on 6472. A flag would be way cool.

Peewee Where do you come up with this stuff? I'd love to get a copy of both of those, do you have higher resolution copies I could get from you?

Lumatic, I have a guy locally that does this type of graphics work, if I can get a higher resolution photo I can get a couple made more than likely. The spot by the door for this is there, can see the ghost of it and the rivet holes, wondered what it was.

Peewee, your plethora of micellaneous memorabilia shall never cease to amaze me.

Goransons, about the best I can come up with is this brass badge next to my door. Underneath ANAND AUTOMOBILES it says Bombay Calcutta Delhi. My guess this is from Bombay where the frame was reinforced in prepartation for the impassable roads of Afghanistan as mentioned in "Thank You Marco Polo".
