Scotty Updates

Jane & Don's "Harvey" got a new coat.
Looks great Jane and Don!

Look at that sad face. Due to an unexpected death in the family and the fact that my heart is just not into it, Mabel and I will NOT have our teardrop done in time to debut at the National in Slippery Rock. Instead he will debut at the National in Colorado. He will remain under wraps, i.e. no public web pages published, until he debuts.

Mabel WILL have her teardrop at Slippery Rock. She's already rolling with it and our new Zappy scooter!

Scotty Restorations

The NSSO is very picky when it comes to recommending trailer restorers. Only two people have thus far earned our endorsement: Tom Bernot in Ford City (north of Pittsburgh), PA and new to receive our endorsement, Mark Denlinger in Akron (west of Philadelphia), PA. New this month, we are also adding restorers who members have used and recommend. For more information and to check out their work...

Scotty Images

Amy finally got out with her rebuilt
JS715 Scotty "Francesca"

The Arpins scored big—a pair of
original wheels and really nice hubcaps! Installed by Antony at Restless Wheels in Manassas, VA, which used to sell Scottys!

This is Scotty number 2, as in VIN 002. It belongs to George Baker who is towing it here with his 1968 Ford Country Squire.

George plans to tow it out Route 66 with his 1963 Mercury Monterey. Check out the blog...

Bill is working on his '59 "Tater" getting ready to head to Boone.
Why do I want to say
"don't try this at home"?

Coco Straight filled in for Mabel as Rally Dog in Boone, NC over Memorial weekend. Coco and Mabel want you to know that being a Rally Dog is exhausting work. It is NOT all fun and games!

Andy Dobbs is crusing along with his '62 Front Kitchen rebuild.

Rachel and Gail are rebuilding their '65's door. Mabel helped!
