Keep a closer eye out...

Not that you, or anyone else, will ever find the deal Barry got.....I am sure he had a bandanna over his face.....keep looking.
Last week on Ebay there was a perfect Cloud, near you too, sold for less that 3000. The 56 Overlander in Amarillo a few months ago...sat around for sale for months before a good home was found. Heck, Soldiermedics Cloud....talk about a deal. Just keep looking.

Melody Ranch is right - except for the bandana part! If you keep looking and have ready cash, you'll find your AS.

It feels like a faberge egg. HA! Maybe I should settle for a Globetrotter or Safari right now. I want to die in a '55 FC so I'm still young. I have time. I think. Either way not having a coach, when you're used to one, is lame.

Looks like it was always like it was this tall- very well proportioned - very impressive work! Man castle, not man cave!! :
Inspiring! If we ever build an AS palace, we will call you for help- ok?

Nice job on the building... I am sure your Cloud will be happy in it's nest.

Now that the man cave is done- when are you going camping?

TAC Camping

Here is a picture of my 13 year old son, Beau. We were getting ready to head home. Before we did, our friends Scott and Kathy came over to check out a template Scott had made for his bathroom layout for their 1955 Flying Cloud. We also compared Zolatone colors with a swatch book they brought. I'm hoping other members will post some images of the Rally here. From what I understand, this was the first Iowa TAC rally.

Got a question

I am getting ready to reinstall the outside door light. I noticed that the fixture is a 1157, dual contact type, bulb. Why would that be? Is yours like that? Or, was it one of those mysterious mods we see previous owners make?

I will be waiting...if I'm alive after working on top of the Cloud today. The choice is 107 outside in the sun or inside in the shade.....ever been in a tin barn at 107 temp outside? Its like being a loaf of bread being baked. Boy! I am having fun.
