    • How about a ride that I used to have up until about 8 years ago.

      For about 5 years I had a Maxair Drifter. I had it for joy riding, but National Geographic used it to fly over big herds of animals in Africa. Most of the great shots from the ais were from the NG channel and shot from this airplane.

      Once, the engine overheated and stopped at 1,000 feet, but my experience at Microsoft Flight Sim saved the day - and me! I would sit at the computer and put in a couple of units of fuel (less that a cup), and fly an airplane up to 10,000 ft (on the computer), run out of gas and float down and land. That skill came in handy when the engine stopped on me. I looked for the wind blowing the flag at a car dealership, lined up with the wind and, fortunately, was able to land in the big field at the Masonic Home for Children.

      In this image, the black tube just under the wing is a parachute that could lower the plane and occupants (2) down safely. I didn't have one of these.

      This one is red, but mine was blue, with yellow stripes. Like flying a motorcycle! What fun!

    • Well, not mine, but I have a green one. I love the car, and as a Christmas present to myself, I got a CD Changer adapter to convert the vacant changer harness to an Auxillary for my brand new Zune Player!

    • Here's a pic on the Malibu coast. We bought this 2001 C5 last year, flew back to Chicago and drove it home over Route 66. The first owner won it on a radio station contest and had it in his garage for five years. It had only 2,109 miles when we bought it.

    • WOW, I need to stop looking at all the business type threads and head to the water cooler a little more.

      The first pic is mine and the second one is the advert. photo which is a better overall pic.
