'Streams like old times: Dover, Florida's Vintage Airstream Park

In the immortal words of the B52s: "Hop in my Chrysler, it's as big as a whale and it's about to set sail!"

I love how this looks like the face of a character from a Pixar movie.

It's a good thing the president of BP doesn't a policy like this.

But wait, there's more! Before we leave the awesome Airstream Ranch of Dover, Florida (see previous post), the Bates RV dealership has more delights for the eccentric roadside attraction fan to behold. As you enter their parking lot, they've assembled a vintage Airstream trailer park just for fun. Five tin can mansions of various size and vintage are arranged in a cute little picket-fenced park, complete with lawn flamingos. An added bonus is a gorgeous maroon '60s Chrysler Newport pulling "Bambi." They also have a terrific billboard with an actual Airstream built into it. Sweet 'Streams are made of this.
