If you have followed this page over the years, I hope I have been able to describe what its like to be around here doing some of the things we find we need to do. This is a journey, involvement bringing one of these classic beasts back to the road to again please their owners as they did when they came out…..less the 8trach deck, shag carpet among a few other tjings is a pretty involved job.
Throw on top of that doing several projects like that at the same time to be able to afford the talent, time and space to do such a thing gets pretty involved. That’s what I’ve tried to devote The Co-op to do……..when a project reaches a pony that in the words of a famous song “time to spread your wings and fly” its a pretty traumatic experience for everyone involved.
The first of anything is important…..your first roller coaster ride is the first and unforgettable benchmark on all roller coaster rides from that time on………the fist actual introduction to one of these restorations is one of those times. I feel calling it “the reveal” may sound good but o feel it’s that but more.
For the g u us who did it….its like Golden Gate bridge workers watching those first cars cross THEIRbridge. For the owners it is seeing their dream machine in front of them and for the motorhome….. That horse had better be ready to run!
