Default Newells I've seen....

Elaine and I were riding our bikes from Ventura up to Seacliff (about 7.5 miles each way) and spotted this pre-80's Newell on Rincon Parkway.....no one was home.

The air scoop on the driver's side was angled out quite a bit compared to mine.

wow, it is in really nice condition. the scoops sure would help get more airflow into the radiator area.

The pictures actually make it look much better than it really is......looks like it's been on the road for a long time with no TLC, but the body is clean, as in no dents, or rust apparent. The plates are Nevada. Wish someone would have been home so we could see the inside.

You may not believe this, but we spotted another classic Newell along PCH...this one just north of Carpenteria....appears to be a late 80's, wide body. The owners "weren't home"....probably down on the beach, but here are a few pix. It has California plates, and just like the pictures indicate, is in great external condition. Wasn't able to see inside, so don't know about that.

***Just noticed that the name of the family is on the "eyebrow"...."The Fulks"....anyone know them?***

On another note, we took a chance and ran down Rincon Parkway on our way back from Pismo Beach (took the top of the 'Bird and drove up there for lunch) we spotted the 1980 Newell we saw yesterday on our bike ride, and the owners were in this time! Their names are Jim and Yana (I think she is European....maybe eastern). They've owned it for 5 years. They live in Las Vegas and come to the coast when it gets hot. They were day camping along the ocean (you can park free from 7am to 9pm every day) and then they head to the local Wallmart to park overnight. Very nice people. I encouraged Jim to join this forum. His coach is 37' long and has the much envied ice maker that my one foot less does not have.....sigh! It has twin beds in back. The prior owner did install a Progressive Dynamics converter/charger, and tiled the kitchen area along with new low pile carpet.

Ya know, I've never checked to see if mine was adjustable.....I'll check closer and let ya'll know if it is.....I like that possiblity......sometimes a little more airflow would make a difference!
