Finally- a glimpse of spring let us fire up the Titan! This morning we welded up a receiver to the front and fitted a motorcycle carrier. Then we went on a road trip to the truck wash! Rides SOOO much better with the bags and its running like a top.

Looking forward to de-winterizing in the coming weeks!!

That is a great looking recovery/restoration

can't wait to see the results of the refinishing project, I just did my '96 and I still can't get over the difference.

Is your camper aluminium skin? That Red max/zep works pretty well on it if so. Hmmm.....

From my experience, the Zep process seems to be material agnostic, as it worked well on the fiberglass panels, aluminum edge caps and trim, as well as plastic and painted metal.

We took the Titan to the NASCAR race over the weekend. It ran really well (yay!!) and averaged 7mpg.

We had a gas grill attached to the back rack and the '73 Honda on the front. One day, I'll put in an awning- but for now --we use a pop-up.

It rides so much better with the airbags!!

One of the guys is a huge Danica fan and cooked up some great pre-race grub.

Like the custom "team Titan" t-shirts?

Hey folks. Thanks for the kudos on the Titan and yep-- that's a '73 350.

So, we went on the second trip of the year over Memorial Day weekend. We drove from DC to Cumberland Maryland for a bluegrass festival. It rained on the way there... Thank goodness for rainex bc the wipers aren't making the best contact with the windshield. (Future project for sure)

All in all the drive went well both ways-- she climbed through those mountains like the Champion it is!!

Enjoy a few pictures!

Fellow Titan Owner!

Hi! I'm enjoying your pics and the story of your Titan. We just bought a 76 Titan, which needs work...and we don't have a manual. Do you have one? Do you know where we could get one?
Thanks for any help you can offer!

Kathy
