The REAL McCoy!

Look what we found junking last weekend! It's an actual A/S print used for one of the brochures. Has a caption typed on the back for the the brochure and official WBCCI stamps. Anyone who has the book "Airstream, History of the land yacht" will recognize the photo. But this one is untouched, notice the A/C unit, the one used had it cropped out (you can still see the reflection of it in the roof, my eagle eye wife saw that). We thought it was cool, some real history!

Gave up waiting for the pic to load, at the house with dial up service, really stinks! Let me guess, the cover photo, right? I was so busy checking out the 50's hottie that I never did notice the a/c shroud reflection but alas, there it is! Those old A/S's really sat high, didn't they? Doesn't look like as much of a tail dragger as the newer one are. What would you want more, the Caddy pulling it or the A/S? Two years ago I would have said the Caddy but nevermore!!

I was referring to the girl, just wanted to clarify that.
