Two Lockheed F-104A Starfighters. The wings leading edges were so thin that Lockheed put protective guards on them so the groundcrew wouldn’t cut themselves during maintenance. TopSpeed 1,450 miles an hour. The missile with a man in it!

North American F-86F Sabre, Americas first Swept Wing fighter used during the Korean War. Top Speed 688 miles an hour.

The Lockheed P-38 Lightning would never be confused with any other fighter plane in the world. Starting in 1937 and produced through 1945 They dispatched Americas enemies in World War II.

Sighting in the guns on a Lockheed P-38 Lightning. That’s a lot of concentrated fire power!

Re-arming a B-25J Mitchell Gunship. Check out the eight 50 caliber Browning heavy duty machine guns. That’ll get someone’s attention in a hurry.

Scotty Fenn’s Classic TE-440 Chassis Research flathead dragster. This one has injection mine had four Stromberg 97’s. It even has Scotty’s Cast Aluminum butterfly steering wheel! I love flattys!

This Curtis P-40 Burma Banshee didn’t quite make it back in one piece. But luckily for the pilot “Old Red” got him down safely. They might even put that plane back together and flew it again!

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a model T this good. It’s updated a bit but it’s still very original. I would absolutely love to have this car how about you?

Jimmy Doolittle, standing on the pontoon of the 1925 Schneider Trophy Race winner a Curtis R3C-2 racer that averaged 232.57 mph to take the win. Doolittle was amazing he could expertly fly or drive anything really fast. Plus he led the Doolittle raid in World War II!

Reginald Mitchell’s Supermarine S.6B just before the 1931 Schneider trophy race. This plane was the predecessor to the WWII Spitfire also designed by Mitchell! He lived long enough to see the Prototype Spitfire but unfortunately died before the production models arrived!
