There's a whole cult of people who love nothing more than to restore little canned ham trailers. See this example...wouldn't be the same without the pink flamingo....
AND, best of all, there are a few people around the country who are using their trailers for their catering businesses!!! I LOVE IT!!! This beauty is GORGEOUS and serves.....wait for it....CUPCAKES. Enjoy Cupcakes. Genius. Visit their website to see how cute - http://www.enjoycupcakes.com/.
Last week, while Dad was visiting, I was reading through some old Organic Gardening magazines and came across this article below. In Kansas City, this lady serves ultra fresh snowcones from her 1957 Shasta. Brilliant!
My poor Dad. He sold our old Shasta (may she rest in peace) back in 1989 for $500. A quick Google search and we found that a restored canned ham trailer now sells for somewhere between $10-15k. Criky! What I wouldn't give to have our old 1959 Shasta now. Dad and I could REALLY make something out of it. I know he wants to hit me for thinking/feeling/saying all this because I know I must have made his life miserable back then.
In honor of our little yellow retro bungalow on wheels, I am ordering the below t-shirt for my daughter (www.bodenusa.com). How friggin' cute is this shirt??? I wish they had them in my size.
