1947 ALUMINUM TEAR DROP TRAILER

YEAH, I KNOW IT'S NOT A CAR....

MY WIFE WANTED ME TO PUT HER TRAILER IN HERE.

YEAH, YEAH, YEAH, I KNOW IT'S NOT A CAR, BUT I'M LEAVING IT IN HERE TILL BRANDON TAKES IT OUT.

I KNOW SOME OF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE IT.

THIS TRAILER WAS MADE IN 1947, FROM A SET OF PLANS PUBLISHED IN EITHER 'OUTDOOR LIFE' OR 'FIELD AND STREAM' MAGAZINE, I CAN'T REMEMBER NOW.

MY WIFE FOUND THIS OLD DILAPIDATED TRAILER IN A COUPLES BARN, AND MY WIFE AND TWO OLD PHARTS (EVEN OLDER THAN I AM) COMPLETELY REBUILT IT, FRAME OFF, IN EIGHTEEN (18) DAYS.

I COULDN'T BELIEVE IT.

THE LAST PICS OF IT WAS THE FIRST DAY WE SAW IT. PRETTY ROUGH.....

HAVE A GOOD'UN, AND PLEASE SAY A PRAYER FOR ALL OF OUR PAST AND PRESENT SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN, FOR THEM KEEPING OUR COUNTRY SAFE SO WE CAN PURSUE OUR LITTLE HOBBIES.
