Dream Car Garage: Veterans Day Edition, Part 3

Recommended Posts

#1. B 26 Martin Marauder, factory hot rod to end all factory hot rods of WW II planes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caproni_Ca.60

#2. Caproni CA 60, just because it is so bizarre.  Would love to actually re create the damned thing and make it fly, just because....

#3. A26.  Especially this one, it is owned by my old College friend Tim Savage.

 

 

He wasn't wearing his fire suit and had his son on board when this happened, plane is being repaired/Rebuilt....

#4. P-51 Mustang, the other Mustang I love

#5. P47 Thunderbolt.

Another list for commercial passenger air craft.

#1. Airbus A350-I think it is neat that there is competition in the commercial Jetliner amrket, and Airbus is really bringing it with this one.

Tied for #1-Boeing 777-Even people who hate the USA buy this for their airlines, it is a dominant airliner in its class and very, very safe.

 

#2. DeHavilland Comet - Would have given the Brits an early advantage in Jets had it not had pressurization issues that doomed its reputation.

#3. Tri Tailed constellation, just because if ind them beautiful.

#4. Boeing 377 just for its oddness, and its links to the B-29

 

 

#5. Curtis Condor, first use of a commercial autopilot on a plane.  One possible surviving plane-I think someone is tryi9ng to re construct a badly crashed plane that was recovered in the 1960's from a much earlier crash.

Not optimistic the Condor will be flying any time soon. If anyone is in Ohio, go to the air Force Museum in Dayton, very much worth a look.

Another worthwhile Aviation link, list of surviving prop liners.

I think these were supposed to be all military fixed-wing aircraft.

Ahhh....then we will go with list #1 and....change....

...to the B-29 in place of the failed passenger plane in #2....

...and you all have my lisit in advance for when we talk about passenger planes. Still working on wheeled vehicles and tracked vehicles and the like.

Douglas built the DC 3, actually.

I kind of prefer more modern aircraft like the 777 and the A350 to the 747 for a number of reasons.

Yeah...McDonnel Douglas...

I made an oopsie mistake. 

Happens on occasion. 

I have deep respect for Airbus and their aircraft. I would have mentioned the A380, but that 747...she is my mistress...

And seein that my dad worked at Canadair for 40 years of his life, Canadair aircraft are the reason why I am an airplane buff....no room left for Airbus on any list.

@Frisky Dingo

I have noticed that while in the automotive world we are worlds apart sometimes, in the military world, we have very similar likes. I mean very similar.

      After my two recent experiences with car buying, I got to thinking: both myself and my wife could have ended up with very different cars because it was a tough back-and-forth decision. Maybe it could be fun talking about what we're driving in an alternate universe where the final choice went the other way!

      What's your realistic alternate universe garage? You can go by real life buying experience or just conjecture based on your budget.

      What are the pros and cons of this alternate universe? Is the grass greener on the other side?

      (No, your alternate universe self can't be a millionaire celebrity. Realistic entries only!)
