Long Beach & Sacramento campuses teamed up to trick out a 1982 Camaro for 101st Airborne soldier
Utilizing parts from Summit Racing and working in the PowerBlock tech
center, our Techers put in over 400 man hours in 4 days while working on
both the interior and exterior of the Camaro to transform it into the

Aero-TV: Carbon Cub At Play - Too Much Fun For Words
It's been REALLY busy hereabouts lately, as the ANN HQ crew seems to find
more and more things to do at a time when most folks would think we could
take it easy for a while. Yeah... not a chance. Still, there's busy... and
there's BUSY. And when busy means spending a day with the Carbon Cub, life
ain't all that bad.
This bird has gotten quite a buzz... as the folks at CubCrafters went gonzo
in creating the ultimate Mongo-Cub for those folks that simply aren't happy
with what everyone else is flying. The Carbon Cub SS maxes out the
abilities of the Cub thanks to extensive re-engineering that resulted in a
parts count that declined by 50 percent and also slashed 250 pounds from
the empty weight (against a similarly equipped Super Cub).
Add that to additional design augmentations that included Boosting the horsepower to a lofty 180 horsepower (giving
the beast a solid power to weight ratio of 7.33 lbs/hp and you get a
honking 2100 fpm, along with some great handling... offered up by some very
dedicated aerodynamic refinements that have turned this thing into a flying
work of art. At the end of our photo mission, the truly foolish folks of
SWT Aviation (who owned this particular bird) tossed the keys to ANN;'s Jim
Campbell... who promptly hauled off KSGJ's Rwy 02 in just under 400 feet
(not wanting to show off) and heading aloft at over 2000 fpm... and all
this occurred AFTER he'd had lunch. Yup... color us impressed. So... enjoy
our music video tour of a very cool day ion the life of a Carbon Cub SS and
go ahead and tell us that you don't want to fly this thing REALLY bad.

Farmall Super M on the dynamometer
My 1953 Super M on the dynamometer at the Old Timers Days festival in
Xenia, Ohio, on September 25th, 2010. The sounds of other engines and
tractors in the area (especially a nice John Deere A, heard but not seen at
the end of the clip) make it hard to hear the Super M bear down as the Dyno loads it up, but it
sounds pretty good from about 1:30 to 1:50 or so.
Some previous owner did a good job restoring and rebuilding this tractor.
On this test, it Dyno'd at 57 horsepower. I ran it again
the following day and it tested at 53. Either one sounds mighty good to
Many thanks to the kind folks at Valley Automotive & Tractor Repair for
sharing their time and their Dyno.
