What's for sale in your hometown?

Kept driving by this old Pace Arrow at a used car dealership and wondered what was for sale in your hometown.

Will go back and get a full side picture next time I go into town. Thought I had one but guess not.

Not sure of the year, it has the same tail lights that mine has but my rear window isn't that big. I wish I had a window like it though.Interested what you find out.
Thank's
Tim

WOW slanted

I agree, this one deserves to be shown. Looks all original on the inside. Someone will surely love it.

Not sure either Spritz, but it was original on the inside. I actually like some of these older ones better than the new ones. There's just something about them. But then, I like older houses too.

Beamisl, that pic of the Shasta camper is so cool, Bap will try to buy it for sure! I bought a 1974 Shasta 24' class A MH, as my first! wow, it was so cool, when I sold it, it went to a nice old couple that lived in Olney, Il. , and they told me it was going to be parked on their land down by a fishing pond! I bet it is still there! It had a 454, th400, and 4:10 rear's Damn, would it get up and go! It would out run a lot of cars,, hahahahah!! Rail!

Sounds like our '88 Okanagan 17' MH. 460, trailer towing gears (4.56 as I remember) and 8,800#'s. Even after I added a Gear Vender overdrive I never got more than about 9 mpg. But it sure could go as some Honda Accords found out up to about 70 when the wind resistance really kicked in!

Rail,


I thought putting this in the "Vintage RV" forum would help those looking to find that "Just right one" to find it. There are so many RVs out there that are older but still in good condition and have a lot of life left in them.


Of course, there are the others that they want towed off the property because they can't seriously think someone would buy them in that condition. I saw a pop-up with mold inside and the side all rotted out and they wanted $700 for it.


Oh well, I am looking forward to what people will post here. I think we will see some great old RVs here.


Have a super day, Lynne Have I mentioned that I HATE WINTER!

Saw one just like this yesterday at the show in St.Paul. It was Red and White totally re-done. They had her locked up pretty tight...
I would have thought it was late 50dies because of the rear wings. Pretty cool.

Slanted posted the link to the Shasta, I just put it on this thread cause it was so cool. I have seen that some places are redoing the older units. They seem to be interested in original restoration. Sometimes though they spend so much you can't afford it.


I have seen some older ones, in search for our MH, and although I love the thought of original, I have to say that some of the inside decorations are beyond me. I will probably be looking for an older model then I planned since I think instead of working 3 more years I will be done in July. I just can't keep doing this much longer.


Hope you all have a great weekend, Lynne

In other places I'm known as John from Detroit.. (Thankfully FROM no longer IN) Detroit has filed for bankruptcy, and the first round of hearings were in the city's favor so they have so filed and are now in Bankruptcy court.

As I understand bankruptcy: For sale: One City,, used
