We got a mention in the Wall Street Journal!!! Wow!

Anyone read this article yet? It's about how classic and vintage RV's have become sought after collectibles. They even threw in a mention of us here at Classic Winnebago's...
Maybe that will generate some new traffic our way.

Great!   :)clap  WSJ article...  This is a great website, so no wonder.  So glad I found it.  And the folks who like the vintage RV's, which were built so well.  The information from this website is excellent - mostly experiential, which always works best for old vintage stuff.  I went to a car show once - All American Car Show, down in Santa Rosa.  The little race car next to me had a 454 engine with a roll  bar!  Jeeeeezus!  454's rule!!!! ;)

Fantastic!! I was worried I  be the only 1978  resto-mod going down the freeway!! I thought I would be laughed and honked at!! But I'm the one hoping to be laughing, and smiling.!!

That's great! Hopefully they'll start re circulating more info on the older models. Hubby and I just bought a 34 foot 1988 safari xlt with a JD chassis and a 460 ford motor. Having a heck of a time finding parts and info
