---and the MALIBUSTANG----
I had to blow this up---for all to see!!!

Jackie---after the last 14" snow--temps in the teens--I locked the 'MALIBU' in the hangar--loaded the trusty Benz--and ended up in 'palm trees and lemon bushes'----G

Good morning Jackie
See you there next year--
I think the issues with the landing gear are resolved---but the decision was made that a 1500 mile 'test flight' shouldn't be attempted

Jackie--that was probably the Brunswick/Mercury Sabreliner---wasn't that after your little event at Havasu??? Comparing a single engine piston to a twin engine jet?? That is tough--- They both share...
You got me, Barry---but still a lot of interest for a motor that is nearly 50 years old!!
Question? Have you located any replacement parts for the BP in the past 9 years???
Parker---that was taken in Mike Matheson's back yard on Key Biscayne---1971

Tom and I are talking about Tavares-
-But--there is an issue with the landing gear--
The clock is ticking!!!

This Challenger Marine raceboat with Tandem Cockpit??? 1954??? :)
Hi Parker---Randy ran the Super BP's---they were available as a long or short shaft--
Does it have the 'steady rest' mod? Check for an 'X' stamped on the gear case---
Wow--long time since I've seen a 'studs down' Barry---Right --should be fun!!!:nonod:

I can help with only a boring pic and an exciting story, Jackie.
The MALIBU took to the air yesterday!!!
First time in over three years!!
Common sense and the insurance company insisted...

Jackie, I am not surprised you have not met Fred. During those years that you and I were doing those'wonderful' things with Mercury outboards, Fred was trying to get an...

---Jackie: The absolute last clue!!!!
He and his father share the same middle name: Carl---
Hopefully a better pic--thanks to my tinypic

Jackie---since there are 'only'' 3 or 4 participating in 'Tricks'---I will offer more clues-
-he retired from Mercury
He is 16 years younger than you or me
We had lunch in Vail a couple...

Dang Jackie---I had to look up the M52 story---I have met Chuck Yeager and Bob Hoover--
There is also a fascinating story about the SR-71---The USof A had to purchase Titanium from the Russians in...
Thanks to Ron Hill---

Jackie--Pruett was a short timer with Betty---he lasted longer with Paul--they actually won a race with that big cat--

Jackie--my vote is for Four blades for the 'Spit'---Aircraft engineers and boat engineers suffer with the same problem---two--or three--or four--or five blades are best???

Welcome back Steve---while you were gone I put this pic on so Jackie would know what a spinner is---I said Jackie probably would not recognize this young man---You have to disqualify yourself,...
The boat spent a lot of time at the sign painter---and the body shop---
Ted shared this video on FB
If you haven't seen it--it is the Gold Coast Marathon, July 1962---it looks like Dave was second both days in the 'Bonadettes'----
Later run by Jan as 'Thunderbird'...
Good question, Rich. But like so many of the wings that went 'out West'---there are lots of questions--not many answers--
The next time I saw Olney--he was driving this 18' at Parker '69

Jackie, I know that a 'concept' doesn't need to be period correct---but I included this P-51. The P-51 shares the same wonderful engine as the Spitfire--the Merlin--
(You might recognize one of...
