P-51 Mustang Q-1b Flight Suit Rheostat Heater on 2040-parts.com
Fabens, Texas, US
This is a Q-1B Flight Suit Heater / Rheostat taken off a P-51 Mustang we rebuilt in the 80s. This type of Flight Suit Heater / Rheostat was used in various WWII aircraft to heat up flight suits. The pilot or crew would simply plug in his flight suit into a rheostat to heat/warm up.
This is truly a unique P-51 Mustang Flight Suit Heater / Rheostat making it not only a great addition to your collection and great conversation piece but it will also make great museum display.

The rumour on the grapevine this morning is that Radio 2 man and Ferrari nut, Chris Evans, has traded a Ferrari to buy a McLaren F1
Chris Evans is known for many things; Radio 2 presenter, doting dad, one-time enfant terrible of TV, creator of CarFest and, perhaps most of all, the most high-profile collector of classic Ferraris in the UK. But the word on the grapevine this morning is that Chris has chopped in a Ferrari – and we don’t know which of his Ferraris – to buy one of the 64 McLaren F1 supercars in existence. If he has, and we’re digging for confirmation, then he’s obviously been listening to the advice a number of experts at the top end of the classic car world who believe the ‘next’ Ferrari 250 GTO (a car Chris owns) will be the McLaren F1.

With its 3.0 litre straight six complete with Twin Scroll Turbo it delivers 315bhp and can get to 62mph (with the auto ‘box) in an impressive 4.9 seconds.

The legendary Grand Sport name is being revived for the 2010 Corvette, Chevrolet said on Friday. The 2010 Grand Sport lets Corvette buyers give the two-seater a meaner look and tighter suspension without going all the way to the Z06 model. And it lets you do this with the options of an automatic transmission and folding top, if you choose.
