|the lemay museum is a direct rip off from the KalaKala! Think bout it!!! She was built for vintage automobiles before building expensive airstream structures for vintage automobiles was even considered a sane idea! |
Come on LeMay! Do the right thing. You know Harold would be all over this.

|The thing is- if Harold was still around, he would be all over this. How awesome would that be? |
Harold LeMay had more faith in Tacoma than most of the people that live here.

|the LeMay museum is designed with repair bays to restore cars that need restoring. maybe they can send out field repair teams to work on the KalaKala?|

|Fix the KalaKala, Take the vintage cars to the people! The Kalakala can be a bookmobile--but instead of books, you'd have vintage cars. stop at different puget sound ports... AMERICA'S AQUATIC CAR MUSEUM!|

|And now - the question of the hour: Who is the mystery buyer?

|figure it out Dave L !|

|Best of luck to the mystery buyer. That ship is in baaaaaaaaad shape. I was looking at it today and she doesn't look good.|
by NineInchNachos on 12/19/2011 @ 7:42pm
|just needs a little elbow grease.|
by L.S.Erhardt on 12/19/2011 @ 7:45pm
|That and plenty of tack welding.
by NineInchNachos on 12/19/2011 @ 7:55pm
|maybe some marine grade rustoleum silver spraypaint|

|@R.R. - If I would have gone to a certain place tonight I might have run into someone who possibly might know who that someone is. But none of that happened, so I'm of no use. I could have scrounged-up the dollar, but no more. And I have nowhere to keep it and no time to work on it - story of my life. And it's about 250' longer than my current rusty project. You know, this is right up the alley of Walter of USA of Yesterday on St. Helens. This would look nice next to his Chris Craft, and he currently even has an Amphicar on the sales floor.|

|More wishful speculation: Return it to its Century 21 livery for the 50th anniversary of the Seattle World's Fair.www.ask.com/wiki/MV_Kalakala|
I hope it really will get restored. It will be a really good ending to a great story of dreams and sacrifice.
I'm glad it was given a place to stay for this long. (There is almost a slight, tangential LeMay connection there.)
R.R. you didn't trade a Rodrigues Action Figure Tacomic for it did you?
