    Eloy, I saw my first Harrier demonstration at Barksdale AFB when I was 10 yrs old, I still remember staring at it, mouth agape, while it hovered over the tarmac. It was the most mind-blowing thing I'd ever seen in my whole decade of living!:lol3

    Pop flew P2V's back when "two turnin an two burnin" was "cool" - There is some old school video out there for that crazy low altitude, unpressurized, FLY-WITH-WIRE av-gas in the tanks (and smelling it), sub hunting with a wing tip flashlight bullshit.

    Oh, the stories I've heard...

    I was an F18 Fire Control Tech (code reader), but I ALWAYS LOVED the F4 Thunderpigs. Best Blue Angel shows I ever saw (back in 68). Bent wings, and bad assery, afterburners, smoke, allll OVER the damn place! :deal

    And I also remember a single seat helicopter called the Scorpion that was awesome.

    Hey I used to have a Kawi-green ZX-9, but I never slept with it. Honest.:D

    Surely one of you POGs can tell me what's going on here. Did some Chucklehead graft a wagon rear end onto this Mopar? Surely this wasn't a production vehicle. Couldn't have been. I've never seen anything like this before...

    I like it.
    Have always liked wagons.
    Those hopped-up, foefiddyfive, foe-speed, 4900# OldsMoBubble Vista Cruisers would be pretty hip too.
    Oh yeah an Shaun - gitcher dam boots offa the furniture batch!

    Always wanted to build something wild with the Toronado Unitized Power Package after I saw a VW Bug with one done mid engine.
    The 425 was a torque monster rated at 385 hp (287 kW) and 475 lb·ft (644 Nm) of torque stock.

    I had a 70 Eldorado that was too much fun smoking the front tires.

    The '70 442 was always my favorite
