FINALLY!!! After many years of patiently waiting . . . it happened. Three weeks ago Tim and I have found/purchased the Holy Grail of trailers!!! Or at least in our minds and no one else. LOL
I have to keep peaking out the window to make sure it wasn't a dream. Nope . . . not a dream. We really do have a 1948 Airstream Liner sitting in our yard! She is going to be so beautiful once restored and polished. Tim and I have a long road ahead of us ... years actually to get this one done. But we are not in a hurry. The first 'official' part has already been ordered and installed. A proper main entry door knob. The one that was on her did not work and constantly kept popping open. Now we have a shinny new one that fits properly and one that we have a key to. We will need help with it and will have questions for everyone and the 'What did/would you do?' kinda stuff when we get to that point. Anyone like to polish?
Now if only the rest of the '48 was all shinny! Got polish??? I know I keep trying. No takers yet. Cheers ... we drank our first beers in her already ... standing!!! Hahahaha
THE STORY CONTINUES . . .
On top of that we have just acquired Tim's Grandfather's truck a few weeks previous to purchasing the '48 Airstream. It's a 1961 Chevy Apache Pick-Up. So for now our heads are spinning. Tim said spinning doesn't cover it. It may be a year until we dig into the Airstream but we have her and that's what is important.
For now the truck has priority and the next six months to a year will be focused on it. We are so very excited. This all happened all at once and at the worst/best time. Oh my! Is there ever a good time?
