IT WILL CLIMB AND MANEUVER AND DIVE LIKE THE BIG ONES AND WHEN YOU'RE TAXING OUT AS THE ENGINE PURRS AND SNORTS AS POWER IS ADDED, HEADS TURN, TINTED GLASS ADS MYSTERY!....WHICH BUDDY OR SWEET THING IS THE COPILOT THIS TIME OR IS IT A "SOLO MISSION"?
THIS PSEUDO FIGHTER PREFERS LOTS OF TAKEOFFS, LANDINGS AND FULL POWER LOW PASSES WITH STEEP CLIMB OUTS AT POPULAR AIRPORTS.
THE V6 FORD ALUMINUM HIGH COMPRESSION ENGINE, 50 SMOH, WAS BUILT FOR AVIATION INSTALLATION IN A RACE ENGINE MACHINE SHOP AND WILL DEVELOP A COUPLE HUNDRED HORSE AND USES HIGH TEST AUTO FUEL WITH APPROPRIATE ADDITIVES. VFR FLIGHT-NAV AND COMMUNICATION IS WITH A KX170B AND TRANSPONDER WITH ENCODER THE CUPP SPECIAL CRUISES AT AROUND 170 MPH WHICH MAY BE IMPROVED WITH A LARGER PROP.

THE BUILDER, A RETIRED AIRFORCE E8, NOW AN A&P, IA, COMMERCIAL, INSTRUMENT, INSTRUCTOR RATED WAS ASKED "SO IF YOU BELIEVE A LYCOMING WITH REDUNDANCY NOT POSSIBLE IN THE V6 HAS MORE RELIABILITY, THEN WHY DID YOU USE THE V6?"..............."WELL?"....... "WHY DID YOU USE THE V6?"..............."because it sounded LIKE A P51!", HE SNARLED SOUNDING LIKE THE ENGINE ITSELF.
AND IF YOU WANT THE FEEL THEN YOU FLY SOMETHING THAT OTHERS CAN'T BECAUSE THEY DON'T HAVE THE SKILL, THEY ARE AFRAID AND CAN'T DEAL WITH IT, THERE MOMMY WON'T LET THEM OR "D" ALL OF THE ABOVE! SO WHEN YOU PUSH IN THE POWER YOU FEEL AND KNOW YOU HAVE EARNED THE SKILL IT TAKES AND YOU CAN HANDLE THE BIRD WHEN THE ENGINE PRODUCES THAT SOUND AND THRUST TAKING YOU INTO THE AIR!
AND WHEN YOU TAXI IN, BOTH YOU AND ENGINE PURRING AFTER LANDING STRAIGHT DOWN THE CENTER LINE, YOU THINK "YOU SON OF A GUN. YOU'VE DONE IT AGAIN"! AND THEY ARE LOOKING, POINTING, AND WAVING AGAIN.

SO, IF YOU WANT TO BE THE FIRST ONE THERE, THEN BE THE FIRST ONE HERE FOR THE SILVER BIRD THAT SAYS HEAVY METAL WITH BIG SOUND!
