Thanks for posting the pictures!
I'm still trying to figure out which '91-'93 SAAC car that is. I have a few ideas.


These 4 photos below were posted somewhere on Facebook (from an internet search) by the Hickory Aviation Museum.
We know I'm into the cars, but those planes are AWESOME!

That would be ‘92 SAAC MKI #001. Did you guess right?

I know we focus on the cars but we were at an "air" museum. In reply #48, the blue plane with the blue Cobra seems like something Carroll Shelby would build. It's a Curtiss XF15C-1 “Stingeree”, an experimental conventional piston/propeller driven plane but with an added jet engine. One of only 3 built in 1945. This aircraft, the third and final prototype, has the distinction of being the very last aircraft manufactured for the US Navy by Curtiss.

The museum also has a Bell AH-1W “SuperCobra”. How fitting.

I got this video sent to the museum Instagram page, what a fantastic production Craig Hanus did on the event, plus his YouTube page is pretty good with other content.  It's about 11:30 long, and has a few pop up ads, just "skip ad" when prompted.  Thanks to all who came out, I think it was a successful gathering and as always, there were lessons learned to improve on how to do this better.  We are a "not for profit" museum, and the donation box was pretty full so thanks to everyone for dropping a few bucks in the box, plus having your cars there brought out the public who also helped fill the box.  100% of the donations go right back into the museum restorations and acquisitions of aircraft.  Thanks again.
