    Your sounding like my wife now.......BTW the project in the garage (Porsche) after Mustangs, will be German powered when it's turn comes along. The HA-1112 project needs a lot more parts, currently that project is more yours than mine.

    Looking up Spitfires that raced in Cleveland, I came across the XP-40Q. The second prototype raced in 1947 and was lost, I wondered what happened to the first prototype.

    There were actually three XP-40Q prototypes. The first and third were damaged in test crashes and not rebuilt.
