Pending picture coming

Sad transportation story just found out about. A 96 year old WWII Vet pilot here at our local airport spent several years restoring a clipped wing Taylorcraft.

This thing is gorgeous! Guess a movie company came in, purchased it and is going to crash it for a movie.

I don’t understand, why do that to a real vintage plane. I know, I know..... money talks.

Of course this surfaced after they bought it.

This is a file photos of the Clipwing

That's a lot of patina right there. It had a current SC tag on the back. Pretty much anything goes down in these parts.

Parents? I've always had a thing for retractable top Ford Fairlanes. Unfortunately, that beauty wouldn't fit in my garage, and I can't afford another car.

Love looking at the pics, though. Also, a big fan of '58 Chevrolet convertibles.

55 Chevy two door was the only car I had ever seen my dad walk up to and look at during a car show and lose himself in thought. He wouldn’t say a single word, just a slight shake of his head and he would just walk away. They gave up the 55 for a more sensible “family” car. I know to this day, out of all the cars he has ever owned, he wishes he still had it.

I had always thought it would be cool to be able to find one, then deliver it to the garage and then leave. Letting them to discover the surprise. I just haven’t been in a position to acquire one.

Maybe find a way before it becomes a regret?

It ain't stock, but rather custom.
