We've Come a Long Way!

I just wanted to show some of the pictures from our original adventure of getting our 1963 Ambassador out of the junkyard.  To get the full story of how we got it here.

Here's what it looked like from the street.  Those weeds you see are nettles!

More nettles and junk - some of those nettles were up to my shoulder!

How does one collect so much junk?

I held my breath while the junkyard owner backed out the Airstream with the bobcat.  I wasn't sure that he was really going to be able to get it out without scratching it!  He did fine, but I could barely breathe!

There is the empty whole from where our new adventure was born!

Hope you enjoyed my before pictures!  Stay tuned for more soon!


  1. Great pictures... nice to see such a jewel in the junk. Good luck.

  2. This reminds me of some of my Dad's airstream finds. My favorite was his 1950-something Bambi. I got to pick upholstery, etc. for the inside and it turned out adorable. I wish I would have purchased it when he sold it. It was a cutie.
