This is a nice car but I haven't used it for some time as it has been lent to a friend. I have 3 other vintages including 2 other A's. I have 4 kids and when I had plenty of money (in days gone) I bought one each for each of them. That was a mistake for they don't have the interest, at this stage anyway. So this 30 Coupe and a General Motors Holden have been billeted. That leaves me with a 28 Ute and 28 Tourer.
The aeroplane is a De Haviland Tiger Moth. The aeroplane is not mine and not an aeroplane I particularly like. My preference goes to those with enclosed cabins and cabin heaters.

I've typed this story 3 times this morning and each time lost it somewhere on my computer. I'm not doing it 4 times so it's picture only. sorry

I just finished building this 1928 Woody Huckster and took it out for it's first public event. It was a Wings and Wheels Event at the Poplar Grove Airport and I ran into this Pientenpol aircraft that was also out on its maiden flight. The paint color schemes where almost the same.... Great minds think alike??

Later on at a Fly In Breakfast at the Beloit Airport the airplane owner asked me to pose my 1928 Woody Huckster with his airplane. It is awfully hard to say no to a photo op like this....

EEA's 1929 Ford Tri-Motor came for a visit to the Rockford Airport. I had to swing by just to say Hi !

That's a Waco behind you. Behind the Waco is the tail of a Cessna 180 or 185, difference being the engine in it. Behind your Woody is a Cessna 150.

I'd love to get my car in front of a Beech Staggerwing.
