While we attended the Lincoln Highway Conference, we received a call from Ken Faber, TCT member.
The message informed us that Bud Cooper, founder of the Vintage Airstream Club and TCT member, and Hall of Fame inductee had passed away.
Bud is the person that first spoke to me about the Tin Can Tourists. Bud was devoted to the Vintage Airstream Club and TCT.
