    Where's my winning lottery ticket?

    Hopefully someone will pick this up and return it to racing. We never found this birds potential out.

      Eric's story on Furias yesterday in Forbes -

      While you’re daydreaming this week, spare a few minutes for what it might be like to own your own 460-plus mph modified warbird air racer. If the thought gets your blood flowing, then you may want to buy “Furias”. You’ll have to put it back together but you’ll have major cool-factor cred.

        They didn't do their homework... "18 cylinder R4360"?

        Its too bad he didn't sell it to a certain Sport class racer when he was interested. (Said person now has another unlimited project. ) Odds are it would be well on its way to flying by now.

            If someone really wanted to get Furias back in the sky quickly, Dusty's Sea Fury project and spares would get them there (and fund Dustys racing as well.)

            Explore the Hawker ISS Fury FB.10 project available, featuring one complete unrestored Hawker Fury FB10. Don't miss out on this opportunity.

              Here is hoping someone snaps this project up and brings it back to Reno. Although it looks like there is a lot of work needed. Multi-year project.
