Thanks all!

Thank you all for your kind words ... as I said in the C2C thread, after I get this beast home I will start a thread to keep everyone thats interested updated (with LOTS of pictures). I am trying to find a good blogging site than I can put the central body of the info on and post links and the cliff notes versions on the forums.
Bob

Congrats on saving the AWC '62 Ambassador. It sure has a unique history and I'm glad you'll be taking over the project. As for a blogging page, take a look at blogspot.com where a bunch of us have blogs set up. Check out mine in my signature along with several others I have listed as my favorites.

Bob,
Congrats and take good care of that trailer! I really wanted it, but the timing was not right for me, so just like for Scotts ATW #8671, I will have to live vicariously thru your restoration and adventures.

I had given some thought to this project as well, but with my wife out of work and the magnitude of the project, I was forced to pass. Please keep us up to date as this trailer returns to the road.

Bob, you are a very lucky guy. I, like Richard, thought seriously about making that trailer a project and decided I had enough irons in the fire. I think you will find your 1962 to be very user friendly and quite comfortable for almost all your needs. You have a very long road ahead of you and I look forward to watching you progress. I highly recommend a blog on Blogspot. I have two and enjoy reading the three or so dozen I have linked on my blog. Please let me know when you get a blog going no matter which host you use.

I'm happy to see this thread is still alive and kicking and that 6472 has such a loyal following. I'm sure Bob realizes the responsibility that goes along with ownership and will do her right. I will look forward to reading about her next chapter. Here's to the next 47 years.

Going, going, gone

As I write Bob is hitching up 6472 for the trip to Missouri for her next, not final, chapter.

Bob, I've been looking through the photos Scott Goranson posted that he got from the Tolle's. There are some pretty cool pictures of 6472.

Congrats Bob, you will have vintage owners from all across the country keeping their eyes on your progress. Most of us a little envious of your find, but very happy for you. Great to see someone get the trailer with an intrest in her history and bringing her back to life.
