Is there something inside that box?
Must be something we don't know about - FlightAware has its speed listed as 2768 knots!

OK.....which is which?

One flying classic and one driving ...classic to be!

This thing is awesome! You can take your pick which one.

Yep, mission accomplished - we're all green with envy Jaba...!

The 86 will definitely be a classic. Nice colour choice also - showes off the lines the best out of all the colour options IMHO.

Oh, nice plane too...

Your first shot is interesting Trojan, I thought Nath lost all his toys?
Yes, he has. I can't remember the exact date but this was only about a week before the proverbial hit the fan. Beautiful helicopter.

Jaba, at least 'Big Bird' comes with the optional wing.
Wouldn't the missus let you get the GTS Option Pack?
wimp.

Trent, it adds weight and drag.

Side skirts lower ground clearance.

Cost had nothing to do with it, and I prefer it without them actually.

Bang for buck, this is one of the best cars I have ever driven. Not for everyone but I can say if our race car handled that well, (it had another couple hundred ponies) I would have been happy. It is a delight to drive.

Should have gone with the Subaru BRZ, same car, slightly cheaper price and free servicing.

Say, I'll tell you what Jaba. Next time I'm down there, you take the RV and I'll take the 86. We'll head to the same place, and we'll see who get's there in the fastest and most funnest way, .

BRZ can't beat the GTS interior finish. BRZ spec inbetween GT and GTS more or less. GTS is the ducks nuts IMHO

For those who want topless it is already in the pipeline. Turbo might be also but people forget it's not all about speed with this car - it is as much about handling, which kind of brings us back to the AN2 for aviation content. I bet it is, shall we say, a little less 'perky' in its handling?!

Shame you have to half-remove the engine on the 86 to change the spark plugs - I think that job would be easier on the AN2 but then, there would be a few more to change...

And the GTS is what it is. Hard to tell from the outside, subtle difference.

AN2 is not perky....quirky it is but its handling on the ground is even jaba proof! As much as that will surprise a few

And it has a good load of grass darts too! They were everywhere the other day, crazy!

I've been a spectator here for eons, so I guess it is time I contribute something to this thread.

These shots are from Avalon, Geelong, Point Cook and the F1GP.

Pichers VH-XXX? You want pichers?

Seen at the David Hack Day at Toowoomba on Sunday - a very original and immaculate (both inside and out) Beech C33. Not bad for a 1964 airframe!
