    Re: Paul Top This

    Had a girlfriend who once pulled a 45 revolver out from under the bed just to show me. When I left next morning it was "sayonara".
  3. Re: Automobile troll: You guys are all about BMW, Porsche, Corvette, etc.

    Despite his mother always having said, "never love a car, because it'll never love you back".

  33. Re: B17 and P63 collided mid-air at Wings over Dallas air show

    Some years ago a brother and I visited a small airfield near Warm Springs, GA where a P-63 was being rebuilt. Could've been that one as there aren't many of those around; not like P-51's and F4U's.
