Looks great!
I certainly can imagine you would be attached to it by now.
Best of luck in whatever you decide.

Nice job on the cushions I was thinking of you, there was a 1961 Shasta on CL for 600.00 pics didn't look too bad. Right up your alley.

HARLEY,,,thats funny i missed an early 60s last night for a thousand, so i would have grabbed that 600 buck one up in a heart beat,, the only thing the one here needed fresh paint on the exterior,,,,the ad said no calls untill 7pm i called at 7 on the dot and he had promised it to another guy..the guy called at 6 45...and the shasta was only 4 miles from my house....
i told him i would bring the cash right up to him,,,,but he was like me and stood on his word...and i had secound chance,,,,but i knew the other guy would jump on it--he worked for summit rv....he knew.
ahhh win a few lose alot,,...the fun is still in the hunt, and after the hard work..

thanks to all for the kind words on our first complet rebuild..

this is what is next....

Hey Bap not to change the subject, but I heard you were looking for an Airstream, ck this out Airstream Vintage Trailers - Classic Lightweight Airstream 1947 - Liner, I hope that link works.

i will thanks..

wow thats awsome,,,the one thing i know for sure,,,my music in the rock-n-roll buisness never made a note, and i never could afford that without even knowing thhe price im sure of that...lol...
but she is more than awsome,,,,thanks for sending me that info..
but i know if the dw and i could find an old used one we could make it look as nice im sure of that....---but to own one of the first ever made would take more money that this poor old dirt farmer has made in my lifetime...lol..

but im calling about it,,,and i want it.....i just need another heartbreak..lol

i also love the sparton and the avion..
