    I was focused on Nick.

    A scan of a old 8 x 10 that hangs in my office.

    Over the winter I plan to buy a slide scanner so I can digitize all my 35mm slides from the 70-mid 80s.

    I always have thought that was a pretty good paint scheme for the Bear -- covered up some the oil streaking...

    The MB-5 looks complete in that shot. Has it flown?

    That year was definitely a 'tale of two Mustangs'. Everything went perfectly for Dago, and Voodoo had the most up and down week of any racer I can remember. I think that's the prop and spinner off of Art Vance's Mustang, after Buckwheat had the prop run away during qualifying. New engine too. I have video from Saturday morning of race week when they came back from the dawn patrol test totally drenched in oil after a line came loose. And then there was the miscommunication when Race Control was messing with them as he was taxiing out for the race and they couldn't make up their mind if he was eligible or not...and ended up calling him back.

    A clipped-wing, Griffon Spitfire on a grass strip as the sun is coming up. There is just something 'right' about that combination.
