    That's a little deceptive as Moffett has the one big Macon era hanger. But it also has two of the smaller (but still large) Blimp hangers the same as Tustin. As a boy I remember the sub patrol blimps going out over our house near Emerald lake. They were low enough that I thought I might be able to catch the mooring rope and pull one in someday.

    SCD Mk3- built in 1965, designed by Lee Dykstra (later well known race car designer), built by Don Cox, financed by (?) Strout and driven by Glen Lyall. They got a 429 Cadillac engine out the back door of GM, who I think Cox was working for at the time (he later headed pit crews at Indy for Penske and others). The then-innovative wedge body was penned by GM design studios.

    San Fernbando Fans could watch the action from the elevated spectator parking lot and the comfort of their cars. Thats Jeep Hampshire on the left and Bill Alexander on the right preparing to fire up.
