And it probably wasn't that expensive if priced per pound.
Tank of gas, visit to the rest room, Indian souvenirs, look at the monster. Something for everyone.
I wonder what gas brand they're selling?
The Fading Fasts would lose at least an hour's drive time and drop some $s there for sure.
The next day they got a message from district headquarters that the logo is being changed.
Route 66 near Richland, Missouri.
Route 66 in Waynesville, Missouri. Wonder if he (Claude Rigsby) is related to my Mom's family (Rigsby). They were from near there.
I'd fix that up and live in it.
I was going to make an Eleanor Rigby joke (Rigby, Rigsby) but you've probably heard 'em all.
I was thinking the same thing about the Gascozark Cafe above.
I'm astounded no one has stolen/broken those DX globes atop the building.
Gassing up the travel trailer?
^^^^^ White gas? Fuel oil for the heater? Maybe water.
I'm thinking water...at least, that's where the filler is on my 61 Shasta Compact.
I believe that pics are required if you mention a vintage trailer.
Let me upload a few when I get home tonight.
Maybe it has a gas stove.
I’ve been kinda sorta looking for a vintage trailer myself. It’s about the last thing I need, but it’s near the top of my list of desires. Almost got a good ’un a few weeks back for an even grand (a steal of a price), but another buyer beat me to it by minutes.
I won’t pay anything approaching “retail,” or at least what is widely seen as retail in this age of great nostalgia for mid-century anything. This will pass, the economy will cool if not tank, and unnecessary swag (stuff with little if any intrinsic value) will sell for far lower prices than it has been fetching in recent years. That’s my guess anyway.
What won’t pass is the visual appeal of ’60s and earlier travel trailers, leastwise not to my eye. A young couple up the street keep one in their driveway. I oughta have one too, to balance it all out.
I know where you're coming from, Tony, and I agree wholeheartedly.
I got mine free from a cousin who used it as storage for his horse feed and tack; the time came when he needed more storage (and the spot to build a barn), so he offered it to me.
It's not in perfect condition, but it's pretty much all there, and could be restored... something I plan on doing when I retire, if all goes as planned.
I was out all weekend, and didn't get a chance to dig out any photos to post, but I'll try to find some in the next day or so.
