It’s no Stonehenge, but if you ever find yourself in Dover, FL you can make your pilgrimage to the Airstream Ranch. Eight silvery shells of their former glory line I-4 near Tampa and were erected by Frank Bates (of Bates RV) in honor of of Airstream’s 75th anniversary. I love the kitsch factor, but I can’t help being a little sad that they’ve been put out to rust–maybe someone could have recycled the parts or restored one of these old gals. There is a sad beauty to this place.
Here’s an interesting 2 and 1/2 minute clip of how the Airstream Ranch came to be (and how county officials almost shut it down). Or you can check out this shorter one by some folks named Sean and Kristy.
