Never judge a toaster by her shell. Lucy the Airstream is a special lady. This 1967 Overlander spent the last 20 years of her life, dying in a farm field. But Lucille has one of the nicest bodies of any vintage Airstream I’ve ever met, lol.
After excavating several feet of earth from around her wheel wells, it was finally possible to jack her axles up, pop off her dry-rotted boots and give her a new pair of shoes. Her rusty hitch had just enough gas left in her tank to allow me to trailer her down the road.
At the moment she is patiently awaiting her day in the sun.
I’m almost embarrassed to admit that I haven’t spent much with her yet. I’m a very monogamous lady when it comes to my toasters. And for now, Alice is the Apple of my eye. But don’t worry, more updates will be rolling in soon.
