It is his plane. Nikki helped him put the video on utube but I was going to let him make the announcement. I think the owner of the car dealership was a friend of his. Pretty cool if you ask me

I called David and asked him to post the ad for me because I knew he was/is computer literate. He tried to help me but I am a very slow learner. The ad was made about a month ago. I thought they were going to give me the car for the use of my T-18 but apparently there was a misunderstanding. I think they sell for around $117,000 plus .

He should have given you 2- cars and a free Maintenance contract for each Steve!! I would recognize that black lightening bolt any day anytime, Whole lotta history in that Ad that's for sure, only wish the car looked half as intimidating as the plane........Dan

No offense to the Porsche;
But I'd rather have a T-18. 8)

Fraser,
No elective heavy MX/mods for a while. After having just spent two months putting a new fish bowl on my airplane, I'll just fly for a while.

I wouldn't have let her on my wing walk with those spike heels but seeing her trying to get in or out would have been very interesting! Hope to see many of you at KY Dam in a couple of weeks.
