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!

Who could forget the one advertised in the back of Popular Mechanics.



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.

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 bet Eloy digs it tho

Truly WTF! but cool in a chucklehead sort of way
