hold the press




I'll always hold the press for an Airstream sighting.This little piece of happy joy crossed my path at work recently.Like something out of a Norman Rockwell painting,an empty shell all ready for a little TLC.

Sigh! Please tell me I'm not the only person to daydream about selling up and living in a 'silver bullet' for life the second I see these things. Mind you, the Retro VW campers have the same effect. The only thing stopping me is I'd have to drive :-)

It most certainly is,PT. The solid brass name plate, the hand punched rivets and how about the gorgeous streamlined profile? If you flipped the last image, you have a classic aluminium clinker built boat!

cheers,

Ian

No you don't,BB. For a small sum you could have it delivered to the dream location of your choice.This one was completely gutted so I imagined have a fancy pants architect re build the interior for me. All very 'Vogue Living'/'Habitat'.

In the meatime,I'll go online and purchase an Airstream cap!

cheers,
