Here's one that would be considered a traditional hot rod.  It's not a very good picturebut one I took in 1968. It is a Clipped Wing Cub, a Piper Cub with about four feet removed from each wing to increase the roll rate.  It also had a fuel injected 85 hp motor as opposed to the original 65hp motor  They were early air show performers and real crowd pleasers because they were slow and very maneuverable.   This one belonged to a performer named Mal Henry which was a play on his name Henry Mallette.

I live very close to a small municipal airport, as a kid we would ride our bikes down and watch the planes takeoff and land. I never knew what they were called but we used to see 4 or 5 of those tied down to the tarmac. Thanks for educating me on just what I had seen so many years ago!   Joe

Great idea for a thread OldsJoe! I've always liked the link between vintage aircraft and hotrods, since they certainly played a part in the sharing of technology, from the servicemen that helped build our sport/hobby. However I may be a bit biased, having been born on Dec.17th, the anniversary of the Wright Bros. big day. ;)

The fourth Automobile Club of America GRAND PRIZE race was run on the Wauwatosa course near Milwaukee 103 years ago, on October 5, 1912. Just before the start, 16-year-old pilot Farnum Fish flew a Wright Brothers airplane over the gathering. That was pretty exciting for the time. And flying with Fish was lensman Hugo Wagner of Chicago’s News Enterprise. It is said that it became the first race to be photographed from a plane.

Our nephew is a 35 year old major in the Air Force and has spent a lot of time in the cockpit of an F-15.  His newest assignment will
be learning to land and take off from an aircraft carrier in an F-18.  Here's a couple of pics taken a while back in the F-15...


Tell your nephew thanks for all He & his crew do for us Americans.


Some really GOOD news came yesterday from my nephew.  After surviving a testicular cancer diagnosis and being grounded for an entire year,
he finally made it back to the cockpit of his "hot rod."  The smile on his face says it all! ;D

Received this in my inbox this morning. Thought some here would enjoy this as much as I did. It brought chills over me just trying to imagine the strength and courage of these men!  Joe

B-17 "All American" (414th Squadron, 97BG) Crew
 Pilot- Ken Bragg Jr.
Co-pilot- G. Boyd Jr.
Navigator- Harry C. Nuessle
Bombardier- Ralph Burbridge
Engineer- Joe C. James
Radio Operator- Paul A. Galloway
Ball Turret Gunner- Elton Conda
Waist Gunner- Michael Zuk
Tail Gunner- Sam T. Sarpolus
Ground Crew Chief- Hank Hyland


In 1943 a mid-air collision on February 1, 1943,
Between a B-17 and a German fighter over the Tunis dock area,
Became the subject of one of the most famous photographs of WW II.
An enemy fighter attacking a 97th Bomb Group formation went out of control,
Probably with a wounded pilot, then continued its crashing descent
Into the rear of the fuselage of a Flying Fortress named "All American",
Piloted by Lt. Kendrick R. Bragg, of the 414th Bomb Squadron.
When it struck, the fighter broke apart, but left some pieces in the B-17.
The left horizontal stabilizer of the Fortress and left elevator were completely torn away.
The two right engines were out and one on the left had a serious oil pump leak.
The vertical fin and the rudder had been damaged,
The fuselage had been cut almost completely through
Connected only at two small parts of the frame, And the radios, electrical and oxygen systems were damaged
There was also a hole in the top that was over 16-feet long and 4 feet wide at its widest;
The split in the fuselage went all the way to the top gunner's turret.
Although the tail actually bounced and swayed in the wind
And twisted when the plane turned and all the control cables were severed,
Except one single elevator cable still worked, and the aircraft miraculously still flew!
The tail gunner was trapped because there was no floor connecting the tail to the rest of the plane.
The waist and tail gunners used parts of the German fighter and their own parachute harnesses
In an attempt to keep the tail from ripping off and the two sides of the fuselage from splitting apart.
While the crew was trying to keep the bomber from coming apart,
The pilot continued on his bomb run and released his bombs over the target.
When the bomb bay doors were opened,
The wind turbulence was so great that it blew one of the waist gunners into the broken tail section.
It took several minutes and four crew members to pass him ropes from parachutes
And haul him back into the forward part of the plane.
When they tried to do the same for the tail gunner,
The tail began flapping so hard that it began to break off.
The weight of the gunner was adding some stability to the tail section, so he went back to his position.
The turn back toward England had to be very slow to keep the tail from twisting off.
They actually covered almost 70 miles to make the turn home.
The bomber was so badly damaged that it was losing altitude and speed and was soon alone in the sky.
For a brief time, two more Me-109 German fighters attacked The All American.
Despite the extensive damage, all of the machine gunners
Were able to respond to these attacks and soon drove off the fighters.
The two waist gunners stood up with their heads sticking out through the hole in the top of the fuselage To aim and fire their machine guns.
The tail gunner had to shoot in short bursts because the recoil was actually causing the plane to turn.
Allied P-51 fighters intercepted the All American as it crossed over the Channel And took one of the pictures shown.
They also radioed to the base describing that the appendage was waving like a fish tail
And that the plane would not make it and to send out boats to rescue the crew when they bailed out.
The fighters stayed with the Fortress, taking hand signals from Lt. Bragg and relaying them to the base.
 Lt. Bragg signaled that 5 parachutes and the spare had been "used"
So five of the crew could not bail out.
He made the decision that if they could not bail out safely, then he would stay with the plane to land it.
Two and a half hours after being hit, the aircraft made its final turn To line up with the runway while it was still over 40 miles away.
It descended into an emergency landing and a normal roll-out on its landing gear.
When the ambulance pulled alongside, it was waved off because not a single member of the crew had Been injured.
No one could believe that the aircraft could still fly in such a condition.
The Fortress sat placidly until the crew all exited through the door in the fuselage and the tail gunner had climbed down a ladder,
at which time the entire rear section of the aircraft collapsed.
This old bird had done its job and brought the entire crew home uninjured.


Please pass this on to someone who will also appreciate this amazing story.
