No, it was all prepackaged crap, and the drinks were from a automated machine,
In the Uk vintage Airstreams are rare, I've seen a few as 'roach coaches" as one forum member calls them, but they have all been late 60's and Early 70's models so pretty common.
Hence the reason for my post.

Airstream made one or two of those and that was all. I would rather see it rotting in some farmers field than used like that.

Its like someone buying a vintage Rolls Royce Silver Ghost and not appreciating its history and turning it into a ratrod,
I think we need to keep things in perspective.
Ultimately it is just an old hunk of metal. It could easily be reproduced.
It is not the Holy Grail.
It is not a one-of work of art like the Pieta, nor even a Rembrant or Van Gogh.
It is not even like it's one of the two extant Japanese Zeros.
Not everyone has the same aesthetic or sense of history.
And it is not mine so I have no say in what is done with it.
I think it is a great use for an old trailer.

He actually would have let it go, for $4,500. Couldn't afford that, plus the cost of literally cutting it out of his backyard. Was sorry to leave it though.
