Cool Automobiles and Aircraft Thread

How about posting some photos of your cars posing with planes?

I had the chance to get a nice shot with a P51 over the weekend.

Great pic!! I've been a plane nut all my life (and an ex commercial pilot). Have hundreds of pics of planes but unfortunately none of our car with a Mustang--my favorite WW2 airplane of all time.

For any Central Texans wanting a photo there is a P51 known as Pecos Bill based at the Burnet, TX airport. It is in a private hangar across Hwy 281 from Seton Hospital, not at the main terminal and hangars. Here is a video of the airplane and owner, Cowden Ward.

Not my car, but I was talking to the owner and we decided to put the two together. Looks like a matching set. I know, itís not a Mustang but itís still sweet.

I went to a classic car and WWII airplane show at Paine Field up here near Seattle a couple years ago. It was a lot of fun but unlike your picture, the classic cars weren't allowed on the runway at the same time the planes were. Too bad, I'd have loved to take a couple pictures up close next to these awesome planes.

Thanks. I always loved the P51 even as a kid. They sound awesome!

It never crossed my mind that a member of this forum would actually own one. How cool!!

That is pretty neat even though its a GM vehicle. They definitely look good together.

It is probably along the lines of liability reasons. At this show they did have them on different areas of the runway, but I just asked the owner of the plane if I could take a photo and moved my car over by the planes.

That was a great video. I think I've seen pictures of this plane, but don't recall ever seeing it in person. It looks slick without the weaponry, but I've heard the whistle he was referring to and that is one of my favorite things about these planes that also makes then unique.

I wish I owned the P-51. I just have the good fortune of being able to fly it.
