1960 Cessna C-172A N7322T
This is the airplane I owned for 8 1/2 years. I named it " Two to Tango" (from the radio call sign 22-TANGO). A Continental O-300 six cylinder, 145 hp engine provides power for N7322T. I purchased the airplane in 1992. It was in fair mechanical condition, but looked terrible. I spent most of 1992 learning to fly, but by 1994 I had saved enough to have the bird painted. The paint scheme you see is the original 1960 scheme. The color was inspired by the 1961 Nash Metropolitan I drove for ten years (see below).

This is my daily driver. The car is a specialty version of the Daytona, one of 4,172 Pacifica models produced in 1988. I rebuilt most of the car including stripping the peeling paint and repainting with golden white pearl. Modifications include a higher output turbo, intercooler and performance 5 speed transmission. The computer is reprogrammed for 15lbs boost. Read the whole ridiculous story about the rebuild on........
