Hi Group,

I have turned over the ownership of my 1967 22 ft. Safari Twin with 
Dinette to Rindy Ostermann today. She indicated that she has already 
joined the VAC and has been monitoring this site! Please welcome her and 
help her finish the jobs I started but didn't complete!!!! (like 
polishing!)  I know she'll take great care of it and will need help with 
questions that will arise.

I now have to wait 25 years for my 2003 Safari to qualify for vintage 
status!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you to all for invaluable advise and support!

Hi All !

My name is Rivka, and I am the way more than even really proud new 
mom of a 1966 28' Ambassador Double. Her name is Destiny, as the way 
in witch I got her was so amazing it could have been nothing less.
After six years and many false starts of my dream of airstream 
ownership and worldly travel, I got down to serious searching last 
fall.  With not much money but lots of determination on my end I 
started learning everything I could. Chances are I've emailed more 
than a few you on this list in my search.
Then last month, having watched three or four beauties slip through 
my fingers, there came "the" email.  A great guy wrote me that he had 
one that had had a bad day with a big tree :(  and was looking for a 
new home.  I jump on my white stallion (that looks suspiciously like 
a Chevy Tahoe) and went to go save her.

She was quite smashed, but only from the side window (forward of the 
door) across to the front window. The rest is amazingly fabulous, 
kept in pristine condition! All the manuals and paper work to boot!! 
After meeting me they seemed so happy, and kicked to the curb our 
previously talked about (read way higher) price, and instead handed 
her over FOR ONLY $300!!!!!!!

It was meant to be, I'm totally in love.
				 The dream has begun........

So all wrapped up, and licking her wounds, she rode home to Oregon 
with me and here we sit. I plan on looking at my options and getting 
her all dolled up to cruise with me around the country for an unnamed 
length of time starting this fall.

*note* anyone who happens to have a front end '64-'68 lying around, i 
have a good home for it!  :)

Great to meet you all !!!
Rivka  & "Destiny"
My '66 Airstream Ambassador
