July 29, 2009



On Sunday, July 26, 2009, while visiting the flea market in Berkeley CA, we saw a truck that brought back old memories of Scranton and also a trip to the U. S. Grand Prix at Watkins Glen in 1965 . . . and some people from the past, too.

This toy version of an airstream trailer was spotted in Santa Monica. According to someone in the store, there weren’t many of them made.
We were glad to see (and take a picture of) this one.
