Forty years ago today, Apollo 11 started its journey to put the first man on the moon. Take a few minutes this week to check out some of the articles and sites about the historic mission. One of my favorite stops, WeChooseTheMoon.com, for real-time updates on the mission. And click on over to a great article by John Noble Wilford over on NYTimes.com.
Kudos to the National Aviation Hall of Fame for selecting Jimmy Stewart as a 2009 National Aviation Hall of Fame enshrinee. BGen. Stewart will be honored at their annual ceremony on July 18 in Dayton, OH.
Sure, that Chevrolet Corvette may be appealing as your next 'family' car, but perhaps you should consider owning a 1935 Bentley. Why a Bentley 3 1/2 Litre Vanden Plas Tourer you say? Bob owned one, and recently, his same car was on the sale market. More:
A two-door Vanden Plas-bodied tourer, the car was designated the registration number BXM 514 and delivered to Montgomery's London home in May by Jack Barclay Ltd, and later shipped over to the USA in September.
It was subject to an extensive restoration in 2000, and since that time has resided in the prestigious Keeler Collection, where it has been maintained to a scrupulous standard. Presented with original engine and bodywork, this represents a superb opportunity to acquire an extremely good quality car as well as a piece of vintage Bentley history.
I guess I'll have to settle for the Corvette - this one's been sold.
