    My good friends Richard Kordylas, Paul Stinsin and I went to Deer Valley Airport in Phoenix Arizona on Wednesday to see the AirPower Tour. The aircraft included a B-17, T-6, P-51, C-45, and the only flying B-29 in the world. The planes were awesome. As we were looking at them we were wondering if they would let us bring our Hot Rods in for pictures. Richard asked around, and what do you know, they let us in after closing tours for the day. It was fantastic. Here are some Pics. More pics coming

    Im a retired aircraft mechanic (A&P,I.A.). I drool over this stuff. My dad flew Corsairs in WW2(navy), and I remember the Cub he bought when we were little(1950s...he gave $850 for it!). All 4 of us kids learned how to fly that thing.Today...a nice Cub is worth as much as a strong down payment on a house! Old cars just belong with these classics

    Pauls roadster actually started as a 1941 Ford cabover truck!! See Street Rodder Magazine June 2011. Paul is an incredible fabricator.

    Absolutely! Me too. My parents took me to a Confederate Air Force airshow at a local base here in Phoenix in about '76 or so. Bitchin'! And even better, Slim Pickens was the announcer that day on the P.A. system!

    Perhaps not a hot rod or a warbird, but they are both Air Cooled.

    The Tri motor once served as Air Froce One for Cuba or the Dominican Repubulic ( I forget which). One could make a case that the Franklin Olympic was an early muscle car. The Olympic was a REO Flying Could (smaller than a true Franklin) assembled by REO and delivered to the Franklin factory with no engine. Franklin shoe-horned their massive 100 hp air-cooled six inplace of the conventional 60 horse REO motor. It had one of the highest hp to weight ratios of any car in '33.
