Old Fords at Udall Park

A friend invited us to a Ford Model A owners’ meet at a local park this morning, so we went over and took a few photos. The cars and trucks on display were a mix of Model As and Ts, some restored to better than new condition, some showing hard use (I think I liked […]

Air-Minded: PASM Photoblog XII

There’ve been some changes at Pima Air & Space Museum, where I work as a volunteer docent. Our T.35 Vampire, once used as a trainer and staff support aircraft by the Royal Australian Air Force, has been moved indoors, and not a moment too soon: de Havilland used molded plywood in its construction, and those […]

We’re back from a weekend in Las Vegas; in addition to visiting with our son, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren, we picked up a used car from an old friend who wanted to help our daughter Polly out.

Tubac Car Show 2018 Photoblog

A couple of firsts this year: one, Donna came along (and on the motorcycle yet); two, my first-ever Twitter meetup.

My favorite thing about this car show, held every January on the golf course at Tubac, Arizona, is parking my motorcycle on the green next to the first row of show cars. Cagers (car […]

Air-Minded: Air Museum News

That’s my friend and fellow air museum volunteer Loc Ho, departing this week for his first aeronautical engineering job at Wright-Patterson AFB in Ohio. I’ll miss this sharp young man.

When he first started volunteering at Pima Air & Space, Loc Ho was an engineering student at the University of Arizona. He looked me up […]
