Dave,

Wow, the articles I read about Commander Terry Goddard were fascinating! I had no idea that the Royal Navy used outmoded—but quite effective—biplanes throughout World War II, let alone that they managed to sink battleships with them.

And how great is it that Commander Goddard's Fairey Swordfish biplane still exists and still flies? That's amazing.

Of course, now you have to tell us how you ran across the Commander, not to mention his MGA coupe. I suspect it has to do with your Dad!

bamboostk86,

These reports are an even better way to start the evening, especially if you're having trouble sleeping!

Seriously, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

It still boggles my mind to think about racing a car worth somewhere between $5 million and $10 million!

Rick

cheers mate, indeed the Vanwall is quite a bit bigger, just that shape I always liked it. I also like that it doesn't look "average" for the era.
