    My 182 would be something like a Toyota LandCruiser set up for long distance over-landing.

    My Maule would’ve been the land cruiser as a low rider...not useful for extreme bac country, but it looks cool. ;)

    It's a rental. I'm shopping for a plane. Might settle for a 140 but I'd really like to pick up a Warrior II.

    Not my plane, but the best photo I could find...

    With its automotive analog, complete with similar name upgrade - a Messerschmitt built by Bolkow versus a Porsche built by VW.

    172 = Honda Civic - you can fit 4 people in it, but no one's going to be happy about it.

    @donjohnston I think the Velocity is probably more like a DeLorean, lol.

    Well the Velocity is kinda like my Volt. Unique, cutting edge for its time, not many around, not a heavy hauler, efficient but never really caught on.

    The Glasair is like another former car of mine, the Fiero. 2 seats, doesn’t haul hardly anything, not many around, not made anymore, parts availability issues, but plenty of fun. 5D9AFBB4-C8B2-43EA-905F-B83742C57D39.jpeg 5AA95F9F-4FF7-4FA6-86C8-51169622D7C4.jpeg
