1950 ? Schult
Once again, my sweet wife was
rubbernecking on a road trip. Before… used to be she would just

attention. This looks like trailer picking territory”. It warms my
On this trip in California, I think
near Lake Elsinore, she once again said “pull over”. She had
spotted this trailer behind a barn. Boy, it seems that in the old

I don’t know what became of my
Schult. One of these days, a very rare original steel body Schult
will show up at a rally and I will be sick to my stomach that I
didn’t keep it and re-do it myself.
