As crude as that is, (plumbing Tee fitting in the exhaust) you still had a blast on it, right?
Farm folk. Grandpa & I (mostly Grandpa) made it from whatever he had at hand (hence my passion for scratch built rockets). The motor and wheels came from an old lawn mower, I'm guessing 40's or 50's era?

I bet I put 500 miles on it. I wore the hard rubber tires off... so Dad made weld passes across the steel wheels so I could get traction.

The reason you have knee problems is that you spend so much time on them. ;) Get yourself one of those small folding camping tables ( the ones that are like picnic tables)
Been thinking about a table, but I'm trying to avoid the inevitability that my body is getting old and slowly breaking down due to a medical condition. It's all better now. Kneeling wasn't the problem. It was the walking that needed support so started using a cart.

Despite the brace, I think it's a kick ass photo.

That's very cool. What a small world. I enlarged the pic. I raced that same track a few times.

The subsequent owner re-registered as N54EP.

It is still flying and is in the original paint.
