If you really want to own a Sportsmobile, but can't really afford one, take a look at this beauty. Not mine!

Hmmm... I wonder if the heater from that rig will work in my van.

Wow!! Too bad that classic SMB isn't located around here. It'd sell quickly. The shed boys out in the woods around here (free spirits who like to live rough - most are really decent folks) would consider it a prime dwelling possibility. Interesting to see something even older than mine...

I'm sure those rust spots will buff right out.

[EDIT: I'd like to see more of the "boat" behind the Sportsmobile. Take a look at the front, driver's side fender of the vehicle directly behind the SMB. That's some old, American iron there].

I was at SMB TX a few weeks ago and one of the frot office folks had run into a lady driving a SMB of the same vintage and same colors but in perfect shape. I think she said she had seen it at the bank and it was just the week before. She talked to the lady and got the story and a bunch of pics.

It was encouraging to know they can be kept in that shape for more than 30 years.
