it’s not a felony to paint a Hunter like this, just a Miss Demeanour!
Miss Demeanour – The Colour Scheme
In answer to the most common question I’m asked, no, I wasn’t on anything at the time.
As far back as my own military flying days, I’ve been envious of the American attitude to paint schemes on military and ex-military aircraft. From the most basic nose art, through the wartime P-51 Mustang schemes to the ultimate paint jobs, the racers at Reno.
There is a plethora of ex-military aircraft in the UK, all dressed up to represent some squadron or other’s markings, often a squadron with which the aircraft never actually served and there are more than enough Hunters around to satisfy the purists.
So, in these days of political correctness, I thought it would make a change to see a Hunter painted as an art form. A celebration of one of the few aircraft that fall in to that category of aircraft that somehow “look right” and, from its looks, you know that they fly right too. In the Hunter’s case, it flies even better than it looks.
Custom motorbikes are often painted using a similar approach. Some bikes are made for customisation and others aren’t. In my quest for a scheme, I therefore decided that what I needed to find was an air brush wielding Hell’s Angel, someone who wanted a machine with a bit more horsepower to work on. Seriously, I started hanging around bikers but quickly realised that any artist was going to need a proper brief.
By this time I had, if you’ll excuse the pun, the ember of an idea that flames were going to form part of the scheme and this progressed on to something based around a Space Shuttle re-entry.
Whilst at Jet Heritage, I met a kindred spirit in Robin “Chippy” Carpenter who, at that time, had an aircraft spraying company. I explained my ideas to him and within a few days, he had produced a couple of airbrush sketches. Those initial concepts fired me in to action and, using Corel Draw, I began playing around with some ideas based on the flames, smoke and re-entry.
That early enthusiasm slowly gave way to practicality. The sheer man hours required to airbrush all those flames meant they were out of the question. I wanted the colours to be blended and the early concept was that of a white hot leading edge applied to all the surfaces, getting cooler and fading, through smoke, to a midnight star studded sky.
But somehow the lines just didn’t look right, whether it was a curve or a straight line, it didn’t seem to fit the wing’s plan form. I straightened the line but that didn’t look right either and, in an attempt to get back to the angular swept back lines, placed the pattern in mirror by mistake. Bingo! It somehow looked very neat.
From that point on it was just a matter of tweaking the curves and colours and I was stretching the boundaries of Corel Draw’s blending function to the limit!
Although I have a 3D modelling program, attempts to use it to portray the scheme proved themselves to be a waste of both time and effort. Working in 2D, I was confident that the scheme would work and yet again Chippy came up trumps by building Revell’s 32nd scale Hunter model and painting it in my proposed colours. It worked.
As for the stars, they indicate position of the major stars in the three signs present in my family, Aries (myself), Virgo (Annie my wife and our daughter Melissa) and Taurus (our son Mark). These were accurately researched using a superb software package called Starrynight Pro.
All I needed now was a sponsor for the paint and the spraying. I tried all the paint companies and was delighted when PRC-DeSoto (then called Courtaulds Aerospace) said they would provide the paint free of charge. Then AIM Aviation (Jecco) at Bournemouth came up with sponsorship for the actual spraying. The fact that Chippy was now working for them had, I am quite sure, absolutely nothing to do with it!
The work took four nerve wracking weeks. There were gantries rigged to give a birds-eye view and enable us to check both the colouring and the shape of the blends. I mounted a time lapse video camera on to one of those gantries to record the progress. The actual spraying took less than 10% of the time – most of it was spent flatting down coats of paint and masking up for the next.
She was wheeled out in the first week of January 1999, looking perfect. Many felt that the scheme was simply outrageous, nothing more, nothing less. That was until they saw her airborne, then the design comes in to its own – somehow accentuating the clean lines of the Hunter.
As for the registration, she was going to be registered as G-FLAP until I started on the artwork, and then the phrase “psssst, look at this!” came to mind. Others thought, “pissed again” but G-PSST she became, or as one Jet Heritage museum volunteer said to me, Personal Super Sonic Transport.
The name came out of the blue many years ago. I promised myself that my first “warbird” would have a name and I enjoyed the double meaning. It was in

I hurt my left elbow weeks ago, carrying home too many bags of groceries. Unfortunately, I am left-handed. It rather hurts to draw, which has slowed me down.
I shop on 9th Avenue pretty much every day, European style. The Big Apple Meat Market and Stiles fruit and vegetable market on 41st and 9th are usual stops. Then I head to some more interesting shops a little further South, behind the Port Authority bus station. I regularly buy raw shrimp by the pound from the Sea Breeze Fish Market at 40th street (I steam at home with Old Bay seasoning). Crabs and a wide array of whole fish are tempting; I should learn how to cook them.
A few doors up from Sea Breeze is the International Market which is crowded with heaped barrels of spices: Cumin, turmeric, paprika, black pepper corns. The intensity of the color amazes me when I have my artist eyes on after a day of painting. I buy humous, tzatziki, taramosalata, spinach pie and sometimes ground coffee, and exchange a word with the Greek merchants. Finally, I stop by Empire Coffee and Tea company for a cup of Barry's tea and often purchase a box of Scottish Blend tea bags.
A fruit stall has appeared on the sidewalk between 42nd and 43rd. The Chinese fruit seller always gives me a special price or an extra piece of fruit. Some weeks ago, I bought several pounds of fruit too many, and carrying that along with everything else the elbow was strained by the time I got to my door five blocks later.
A lot of my neighbors do this differently. They order from Fresh Direct by computer. A young man shows up every afternoon wheeling dollies stacked high with cardboard boxes. Up and down the tenement stairs he goes, ferrying the boxes to the upper floors. I am enticed, but the thought of breaking down all those boxes fills me with ennuie. Plus, I would miss my interactions with the shopkeepers, as well as the conversations and dramas in the check-out lines.
Most especially, I would miss the weekly sight of a crew of uniformed firemen shopping in the Big Apple Meat market for the makings of spaghetti Bolognese. They pull up outside in their full-size fire truck and pile into the narrow aisles of the market, baskets in hand. Really, it is worth the price of a sore elbow just to see that.

1936 Rolls Royce Phanton III Sports Enclosed Limousine
Bids to ?35,000 "Not Sold"
2010 Peking to Paris Challenge participant and Silver Medal winner
The stately Rolls-Royce Phantom III was announced in late 1935 and, until the Silver Seraph of 1998, was the only 'Spirit of Ecstasy' to be powered by a V12 engine. As one would expect from a company already expert in the manufacture of similarly configured aero engines, this was quite some powerplant. Of all-alloy construction, it had a displacement of 7338cc and overhead valves operated by a single camshaft nestling in the valley of the cylinder banks. Prior to 1938, the units featured a unique hydraulic tappet system. A twin ignition setup comprised two distributors, two coils and 24 spark plugs.
Suspension was independent with coil springs at the front and semi-elliptic units at the rear. The gearbox was a four-speed manual unit with synchromesh on the top three ratios. Braking was servo-assisted drums all round. The specification included integral jacking and a one-shot lubrication system operated by a lever in the driver's compartment. Owners purchased a rolling chassis from Rolls-Royce, the bodies being added by a coachbuilder of their choice, the most renowned of whom were: Hooper, Mulliner, Park Ward and Thrupp & Maberly. Once complete, Phantom IIIs could turn the scales at up to 3.5 tons. According to Autocar's magazine test of a 1938 model, 60 mph could be summoned in just under 17 seconds, from which the car could be persuaded on to a terminal speed of some 87 mph. The overall fuel consumption was a little extravagant in the light of today's prices - 10 mpg. Phantom III production ceased in 1939 after 727 examples had been manufactured. Its period of global fame was still 25 years away, however, as in 1964 it was immortalised as the transport of choice by the villainous Goldfinger in the James Bond movie named after him. The black and yellow Phantom III featured was a splendid Sedanca de Ville model with coachwork by Barker.
The right-hand drive Phantom III offered for sale is also finished in Black and Yellow and was built to the order of a Mrs Fyfe-Jamieson of Meigle, Perthshire. Its chassis, number 3-AZ-66, was despatched to Hooper & Co of St James Street, London on July 9th 1936, for the fitment of what is described as a 'Sports Enclosed Limousine' body. The car's specification included 'soft' rear springs, as the Rolls was primarily to be used for touring on the continent.
Following World War Two, 'Flora' is understood to have passed through the hands of David Markson and A. Fairbrother (both fellow countrymen of Mrs Fyfe-Jamieson) before journeying to North America. Repatriated sometime during the 1980s, the handsome Hooper-bodied car's next known owner was Mr Ron Cowpe who purchased it from marque specialists The Real Car Company. By coincidence, Cowpe ended up emigrating to Victoria in Canada, so the car crossed the Atlantic once more. The current owner bought it in Victoria in 2008, with the specific intention of entering the 2010 Peking to Paris Rally. So began a unique restoration project.
It was also a not inexpensive task for, having spent $45,000 on purchasing the venerable Rolls, he then parted with a further $135,200 to rejuvenate it and prepare it for its impending 9,000 mile ordeal through 12 countries and some of the world's toughest terrain. 'Flora' was completely stripped and the chassis restored and powder coated. The engine, gearbox, axle, brakes and electrical system were also totally renovated, with new parts fitted as required. A total of six wheels were restored with extra-heavy duty spokes - a second spare being housed in the left-hand front wing. The fuel system was upgraded with boot-mounted twin pumps and filters, both a 40-gallon FuelSafe and 20 gallon auxiliary bladder tank, plus a three-stage filter for the carburettor.
A modern core was added to the radiator and the power supply modified to dual batteries with isolator switch. A contemporary heater was installed and a truck-spec silencer fitted. Further rally-orientated items included: a roll bar, three-point harnesses, mud flaps, fire extinguisher, competition odometer, sump guard, bull bars, and storage boxes in place of the rear seat. Despite the pounding the rally was bound to inflict on the bodywork and period interior, the Rolls was treated to a bare metal repaint in Black and Yellow and a complete re-trim in beige; during which the front seats were contoured to ensure better support for the competing occupants. 'Flora' was one of 85 cars to complete the rally, finishing 19th in the 1931-1941 class and being awarded a silver medal. The team dealt with 20 punctures, the total destruction of two wheel rims and problems with second gear, the handbrake and dynamo.
As now offered, the Phantom III is said to have "good" paintwork and trim, no known problems with the engine and minor damage to the coachwork. There is apparently a tendency for the gearbox to jump out of second gear
1988 Porsche 959 "Komfort" - RM Auctions
This 1988 Porsche 959 "Komfort" model sold for $412.500 at the RM Auctions in Monterey on August 13, 2010. Below is their catalogue description:
640 bhp at 6,500 rpm, Garret ball bearing twin-turbos, six-cylinder alloy engine, six-speed manual gearbox with all-wheel drive and active torque-split, three-stage traction control (dry, wet and snow) and electronically adjustable ride-height and shock absorber control, double wishbone front and rear suspension with four shocks per 17" diameter alloy wheel, four-wheel disc brakes with ventilated rotors and alloy and Kevlar body paneling.
- A desirable “Komfort” model
- Reengineered to Canepa Design Specifications
- One of only 283 examples built
- The “original” supercar
- 640 bhp with a top speed of 222 mph
Only a total of 283 Porsche 959s were built, of which 83 were the “Sport” models used in competition with the other 200 cars designated as “Komfort” versions for street use. Even at the original list price of approximately $300,000, the cost to Porsche to build each car was double this figure, and the 959 was humorously referred to as the “Porsche factory’s gift to its favorite customers.”
The Porsche 959 “Komfort”
Before the Ferrari F40, before the McLaren F1, and almost before the term “supercar” was invented, there was the Porsche 959, an expression of extensive development, technical excellence, and competitiveness that brought a new excitement to road-going automotive pursuits.
The Porsche 959 odyssey started in 1983 and involved many pioneering techniques, most notably molded composite bodywork. It was the first automotive production use of DuPont’s Kevlar aramid fibers. The suspension has three ride-height settings, as well as three dampening settings for the shocks. Its sophisticated antilock braking system is controlled by high-speed microprocessors augmented by run-flat Bridgestone tires.
The 2,849 cc twin sequential turbocharged and intercooled flat-six engine runs a maximum boost of one atmosphere and uses water cooling for the six individual cylinder heads. The result is a robust horsepower rating of 450 at 6,500 rpm. This power is transmitted through an electronically controlled all-wheel-drive system. Top speed is 198 mph, and 0 to 60 mph is achieved in only 3.6 seconds – mind-boggling figures then and now. The list of Porsche 959 specifications reads like the wish list for the world’s best and most advanced automobile, which was in effect what this GT missile turned out to be at the time of its mid-1980s introduction. Even today, no other road-going supercar is able to match or surpass the unique technology of the 959’s performance specifications.
Canepa Design Specifications
Aside from the 959 “Sport” and “Komfort,” there are also the extremely rare re-engineered cars that were modified by Bruce Canepa. Canepa Design invested years of research and development to take the Porsche 959 to an even higher level of performance, all the while being compliant with California and Federal Emissions laws.
This particular 959 is equipped with Canepa Design’s Phase II Engine Upgrade. This upgrade includes eliminating the factory turbo system and replacing it with an all-new Garrett ball bearing twin-turbo system with re-designed wastegates using Tial diaphragms and titanium heat shields. Also, all intake and exhaust valve springs are blueprinted, optimizing cam timing, and all-new intake runners are matched with K&N Air Filters. The fuel system along with EGR jets are upgraded utilizing a modern engine management system with ADL and an F1 technology engine wiring harness. To help maintain all of this, a high-output ignition system, upgraded alternator charge system, battery module, idle control valve, air pumps, air regulator valves, and a whole host of sensors, wiring, adapters, hardware, and connectors are used. In all, over 369 new components are added.
Canepa Design then combines all of the engine upgrades with a new stainless steel exhaust system that utilizes Porsche original equipment catalytics and a bypass system that produces increased horsepower and a more aggressive exhaust note that can be controlled via a switch on the dash. The entire clutch system has also been modified to help handle all of the power upgrades, which include an improved pressure plate, disc, and a modified clutch pedal assembly.
Not content with just power upgrades, Canepa Design also has upgraded the suspension to 959 “S” specifications by incorporating their new gas strut design with titanium coil-over springs while removing the electronically adjustable controls for ride height and damper tension. They have also reengineered the factory wheels with a new bead design, which allows the installation of today’s state-of-the-art high performance Z-rated tires which, combined with the suspension upgrades, provide greatly improved handling.
The end result of all this raises the 959 performance levels in all areas: 640 bhp, 570+ ft-lbs of torque
modifying power wheels battery
In 1997 Chevrolet did the unthinkable: they re-designed the most popular and most modified engine in American history. The Chevrolet small-block V-8 made its debut in 1955, and with its arrival, Chevrolet instantly leaped to the forefront in the minds of hot rodders and performance enthusiasts alike. While the engine grew in displacement and technology over the next 30 years, its basic design remained unchanged . . . until 1997, when the Generation III LS1/LS6 engine design was introduced. The LS1 engine first appeared in the 1997 Corvette, and soon followed in the Camaro Firebird and thousands of full-size Chevy trucks and SUVs. It also powers the hot new Pontiac GTO! This book is essential for the enthusiast who wants to get the most performance out of this new engine design but is only familiar with the older Chevy small-blocks. Covered is everything you need to know about these engines, including the difficult engine removal and installation, simple engine bolt-ons, electronic controls for the Generation III engine, and detailed engine builds at four different power levels.

I don't care anymore...
I rented this car last month and scribbled a mini-review of it, but when I got to the end, I realized that it could have been a review of almost any small sedan on the market. It got me thinking… and I’ve decided this will be the last car I rent for a while. It’s just not worth it anymore.
There’s a reason so many complain that ‘new cars are all the same these days’. It’s because new cars are all the same these days. Yes, there are minor differences in some areas, yet the basics are all but identical, and it’s hard to find something truly different in any major respect. They're not "bad" - in fact, they're generally quite good - they're just the same.
This car was pretty quiet. It was comfortable and easy to drive. The stereo was decent and it got good gas mileage. It’ll last a decade easy, probably two if maintained right. I could say the exact same things about dozens and dozens of other sedans on the market right now. Seriously, except for extremes and specialty cars, everything is virtually identical. This could have been a Corolla. Or a Jetta. An Elantra or a Cruze. Perhaps a really tall Civic. It doesn’t matter – once you’re behind the wheel, you can’t tell the difference.
To make matters worse, I can’t really say this is a golden age for cars right now. New generation cars used to be better than the ones they replaced. Always. It was just the rule of thumb - technological progress, progressive improvement. The new model was faster, quieter, smoother, better-handling, etc, etc. Well, that system is gone, at least for the time being. In many respects (fuel economy and a couple minor other things excepted) development of the automobile seems to have reached a plateau. The improvement from a 1990 model car to a 2000 model car is much larger than the improvement from a 2000 car to a 2010 car. So, the only place they have to go is down.
I could tell by the quality of the interior in Versa that the model was conceived in the pre-cheapening era (which from my calculations started around 2007, but didn’t gain momentum until ‘09 and ’10), but I’m sure Nissan has already drawn up the blueprints for a crappy, hollowed out replacement that's even more similar to all those other sedans out there... if that's even possible.
The car world of 2011 is one of homogenous vehicles on a downward spiral, with each new generation of car a step backwards from the last. So, what do I have to be enthusiastic about?
