  5. Not necessarily - size usually dictated the "park model", plus full sized toilets, stoves and refrigerators and lack of grey and black water tanks. Lots of smaller travel trailers had big wrap around windows, and found out later they leaked a lot over time - hence the brisk rehab trade of today.

    Years ago I had a 16' Jayco '75, which had suffered 'mule' damage, Bought it for $300, kept in a shed for 5 years, Looking at the 'stick' construction I decided I couldn't fix it well, sold it for $3oo, bought a '75 Chevy Plumber van for $500, went camping in it for 15 years at swap meets, had fun.

    Believe this is hand tinted (Marshall Oils), which was very popular before color became widely available. Nice job. I've seen this image many times in B&W. Gary

    That began as a LSR car by Joel Thorne and Art Sparks which was sold off to Lou Fageol before it was completed. Fageol used it as the basis for his "Supersonic" prototype. 9-23-e.JPG 9-23-f.JPG

    That bus looks so modern compared to the cars. I guess it's because bus shapes haven't changed as much as car bodies have......either way it really sticks out to me!

    And speaking of streamlined vehicles, can anyone ID the coachbuilder on this bus? Taken at Canadian, Texas, 1946:

    And since we're in Canadian, TX, might as well add some more. All new to the H.A.M.B., from 1928 to 1963:

  21. I know I'm not the only one that would like to be able to get up close and walk around all three of those vehicles today.

    Breaks my heart (or pisses me off) every time I see one of these Shastas. Many years ago, not long after my wife and I were married, we had a friend who's parents had one sitting in a field. Her dad was a hard fast Okie truck driver with a huge ego. It looked like he took those old truck driving school commercials to heart. The ones where they told you you'd make tons of money and be able to buy all the things you ever wanted, like boats, RVs and the like.

    He had a field full of trailers, 4x4's, boats and more, all in various states of decay because he was on the road 7 days a week to pay for them all. My wife and I were really interested in the Shasta but we didn't have much money being newly married (seems like that part hasn't changed much). The trailer was in decent shape for sitting so long but was missing a glass louver so there was some moisture damage. He was rock solid at $500 (1980's dollars). Couldn't come up with the scratch. He was the same with all his other toys that were rotting away when someone would stop and ask.

    About 6 months later his field caught fire and everything burned to the ground. Karma, I guess. What a waste.

  25. Hey now, there's a little Okie in all of us. Especially with the dust bowl migration to California.
