Lots of new people looking for area experiences. Just a thought.

    Anyways, any ‘64 stuff you want to post, I will stare at it, study it, and appreciate it. Can’t thank you enough. Owe you a beer.

    Big_Jim, Speedy, Wayne. Owe you beers too for your contributions. I better just buy a case for passing out.

    Sledge,

    Back in 64 were all the racers at the Reno airport?

    Was there a pit area?

    How was access back then, could anybody walk in or did you have special access?

    Such a cool time to own and fly a warbird.

    And, a Mustang was thirty grand or so and you could get new in box Merlins for a thousand bucks. Avgas under a dollar a gallon -- you could definitely have some fun back then.

    This thread, most certainly has morphed into almost a website of its own!

    You guys know, we have a gallery functionality here on the board, unfortunately, between trying to live to 150, and dealing with daily reality, darned if I've dug in and figured out how to present it to you's guys and Ladies!

    I'm still banking on only having to foot 1/2 the overall server bill by grabbing a partner or two, as well as trying to get some more current AIR RACE NEWS content! And generating some nice interesting adverts due to the updated contend!

    Do you guys want to love Fred Telling as much as I do?

    I got a chance to talk with him BRIEFLY at PRS, only took me about a minute and I was hugging him!

    Want more?
