It has, but it's a good one and a decent ride too.

It's a matador. An early version of the cruise missile. Capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

It is not an aircraft. It is a missile. That is a Matador, one of the first cruise missiles ever developed.

Is there a connection somehow with Blended Fellowship or just happens to share a parking lot?

Ok, I was pretty sure it wasn't an aircraft since it had no cockpit. I thought about calling it a rocket but knew that wasn't right either!

Thanks for the information! Very interesting! How did it end up there?

This is not the grab either. But my mother did drive us kids around in a 1968 AMC rambler.
