topology of pride:
Type I: pride of having
Type II: pride in having done

Big difference.

Here's an example from the current EAA gathering in Oshkosh:

I'd like to see the financial assets of WBCCI and VAC used to create a permanent "center" for Airstream maintenance skills. I'm going to push for this permanent Vintage Airstream Home

i'd like to help ya steer back on course.......
here is the thread where ya started this 'topic' i think...
http://www.airforums.com/forum...ams-24585.html

LOL, you know others' posts better than they do. Who are you?

I'd say this is the lowest of lojacks!

And, yes, I do know VAC and others do maintenance rallies, which I should have acknowledged, since apprearing uninformed certainly undercuts the force of one's argument(s). Not necessarily a new experience for me, unfortunately. (by the way, I'm going to ask the moderators to rename this emoticon "Zep")

If it had not been for the interest in Vintage Airstreams I would have SOB. BTW my TV is vintage 2001.

Jim, That's terrific! I'm sure the vinatge appeal has alot to do with having a feel of days-gone-by in the here-and-now. I love the looks and feedback I have gotten so far while pulling the A/S. My wife and kids now do the A/S sighting game while we're out and about.

On the way home for the first time last Monday afternoon (7/24) with the A/S in tow while driving west on I-84 in Connecticut, we got our first friendly wave from a fellow-A/S'er who was pulling their A/S eastbound. (I Wonder if that was anyone on this forum?).

It's all fun.

Just PM your mailing address, and it will be on the way, slightly dog eared of course.
Now if I too could get a copy of that scan of that same issue it'd be great. Like 65GT, that was the last issue before I joined the VAC. I have the history articles from 1954 forward, but would love to get the '50-'53 details.

Greetings Joe,
Just PM 65GT and have him send my copy to you when he's done with it.

Is that article online anywhere or could it placed online? I too would like a copy and I am sure many others would find it interesting reading as well.
