Well i got to thinking about it today and i have not posted any pics of my other love. Customizing and restoring cars is my other passion. Right now i only have two projects. LOL yeah only two. First is one i am doing with my father its a 1983 Oldsmobile Cutlass Originally had a 3.8 V6 auto we are putting a 350/ 350 auto combo in it. I built the engine this last semester nothing special 2 barrel should give about 200 hp. The other project is my daily driver the ranger. The other comments talk about the truck.

Well the citabria fuselage is done all i need to do now is buy some sheet lexan to do the windows. Covering is my weakness. But if i had more i would have redone it but money is tight so it has to stay. Maybe later i will fix it.

Well hello again. I did go flying last weekend it was alot of fun as always. The mustangs pesky retracts struck again. They would not retract so i left them in the down position. Upon landing theleft side decided to try and leave the aircraft doing yet again significant damage to the wing. I picked up the citabria and began recovering it. Got most of the fuselage recovered a little unsure on the colors but im plugging through anyway. Other than the mustang it was a very successful weekend. Went flying friday afternoon and saturday for a good portion of the day. I will say my dads super stick 60 with an O.S. 91 four stroke has to be one of my favorite planes to fly. it will do almost everything you ask of it. Dad also brought his new Pheonix models dolphin and it is a very good plane to fly as well. Old K&B 40 flies it great. Hope everyone is ok with the weather that came through this week. It has been a very crazy spring. Happy flying.

Hello gang it has been a year since my last post. Several things have changed in this year and mostly for the good. To start things off my Cub and twist are no more. My Yak which my brother gave me has been traded back to him for his 27% Giles 202 with a 26cc gasser. I now am flying a top flite 40 size p-51 which has the magnum 70 from the twist. I own a few new planes i have a protender 40, great planes flatouts extra 300, 30 size citabria, and a small electric cub. I still have the zero and the blue angel not much progress has been made. The biggest reason for not doing much with rc is i have returned to college. I am attending vincennes university for automotive technology. Lastly i got a new vehicle. I got rid of my silver cavalier and now own a very nice ford ranger. Tomorrow i will be flying the mustang and several of dads planes. I will get some pictures and post them later this weekend. Keep the wheels right side down, and happy flying.
