Happy Holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Not alot going on these days Airstreaming wise. I've been on the road more lately than ever. Our truck went down hard for repairs last week, as the Transfer Case bit the bullet... and these things are not cheap - big $$$$$!!! It happened in Somerset, PA as I was heading to Ohio to get a Diesel Mercedes (a bio-diesel project I'm also messing with). So, the truck sat there over the weekend and I recovered it on Monday night and completed the trip. Monday night was an all nighter driving - and it was long.... Quantico, to Somerset, to Columbus, Ohio to home here in Plymouth, NY - 5 states in all! So, I just sent Colin an email to get the rest of the SOTR done enough to move it here to central NY. My uncle, who took one of my 1960 Trade Winds, is getting into the Airstream restoration business. So, he and I will complete the high end job that GSM has started.

My Uncle has been doing Vintage Chevy restoration for quite some time - Chevy Ave Restoration - did all the work on our 1965 Jeep Wagoneer, and now is tearing into the Trade Wind. He just installed a new Axis axle on our 1965 Caravel, and put two new axles on his 1968 Sovereign. And seeing the line at Colin's - he's decided to start into doing some Airstreams too! If you call, tell him I sent you his way!

FYI, a buddy gave me these part numbers for covers for the Thompson Coach edition:

23 Flying Cloud 445ght08
27 FB Flying Cloud 966apo38
30 Flying Cloud 033rdl99

BTW - I bought a nice one for ~$200 from before this and it fits pretty well.
