When I was a teenager I urged him to buy into a V65 or an ME20 Super 21 so that we could get places more quickly. "I want to go slow, I enjoy going slow when I fly" was his quiet admonition. I knew to not bother asking again.

Took lessons in my mid-thirties, soloed and was about ready to cross-country solo when I decided it just wasn't for me. Haven't been in a private plane since.
My father was a 15,000hr or so ATP when he lost his medical due to a kidney transplant. So my time was split between the usual Cessna/piper singles to some Champ, and tri-pacer (banner towing) stuff up to light twin. I have more time in a mid model C402 than all others combined. Mix in some Navajo/Chieftain, Aztec and Seneca. Little Beech 18 time also.

Good times growing up, aviation has changed though.

It's funny how we all migrated to cars with airplane engines.

You guys ever see the Cessna that they stuffed the Porsche engine in? I got to see one in person.

I've only seen pictures of the Porsche/Mooney - seemed really strange that they kept the engine cooling fan in place - can't imagine it was needed. Also, light aircraft engines turn at extremely low RPM compared to what cars typically use - wonder how they altered the Porsche power band for aircraft use?

I thought it was a 182. I got to see it in person when we went to look at a C310 for a buyer. If I remember correctly it was in Ohio or Iowa. The plane we were doing a PPI on was in the same hanger.

I think they geared down the prop to run the engine at higher RPM, giving it a good power curve.

ironically Ronnie, What's Her Face looks just like ahem "that" - in fact, just finished T'ing DA for great start of a day as usual. Muwhahahaaa, JNR.

I think our backgrounds assplains a lot of our commonality here amongst us today - my dad was a licensed aircraft mechanic from Parks College in St. Louis and a mech engr @ Pratt.

We grew up w/ him dragging us along to the local field to service a club's fleet, which he swapped for instructional hours. So we did preflights and oil changes etc. on 150s, 172s, Cherokees, etc.

While most kids got a tree fort, I had a '43 Taylorcraft in our garage and a TR4A IRS languishing in the driveway. And he co-owned a Tripacer for a stint.

We only got up a few times, but a colleague of mine used to have a Cherokee which he'd shadow me at the controls with - fun stuff.

I got the car bug instead however - though - seems it skips a gen as my son's really into planes, a walking encyclopedia of them actually.

and yes, the Mooney w/ the 911 3.2 and the distinctive forward-swept tail... very cool.

Brendon, I'd been meaning to speculate yer screen name was related to the RR engine... no?

Ah, back on topic - 930potd:

No, although the P51D was and still is one of my favorite WWII vintage aircraft, as well as the Bear Cat, Sea Fury and Corsair. All time favorite is the P38

The user name come from my stunt riding. IMR-Merlin... Ill Minded Racing Merlin (because I always disappeared when the law showed up)...

I am on the orange/copper colored bike.

IMR-Merlin

a couple questions.

to continue the flying theme. are you also the Merlin on rennlist 928 forum that always has P-51 mustang pics?

second, are you cutting an access to those ign packs? saw MikeD's post with the access panel for the trans shaft to allow dropping the engine easier, and planning for that on my project.

my 930 clone project has an older Electo-Motive twin plug ign. currently it is stuffed in the engine bay on the driver's side. I got the car because the muffler case split and burned some engine bay wiring, posted those pics some time ago. so dropping the engine/trans to pull everything out to refresh/fix.

thinking of moving the ign pack and the rest of the ign system to the interior, mount on the rear seat back. the engine bay is just too crammed now. and may upgrade it to a newer version. still in the 'thinking' stage. I intend to install at least a roll bar, so that would make the back seat useless for people anyway.

I like your idea, and they should not need attention often. so dropping the engine if you do ain't that hard on these cars.

the problem I am encourtering is the more I read posts on this forum, the more things I see that I want to do to my project.

ah, interesting... and lol @ Law... gotta be Teflon, alwayz!!!

same here on the Bearcat / Thundercat / Corsair faves... my dad used to take us to the shows to see them

my boy's fave is the P38 too - I like the P61, I'd built a Revell model when I was a kid and found the EXACT 1974 model still in plastic in our hobby store here a few years ago - it's on display in the garage... nutty!

Hams - what color is your 930? Looks great. Today I had a conversation over coffee with the new E50s.. A morning to remember, that's for sure.
