Hi Mase,

Speaking as a Cub lover (note avatar) nice, early model, first year (1938) Cub. But geez-a-ree, they didn’t even paint the lightning stripe right!

Tom, <<<they didn’t even paint the lightning stripe right!
>>>

I delivered a perfect Cub around 1974 for a friend. Came from a Delta Captain south of Atlanta. I think it was 5 grand. It was perfect except the stripe was upside down.
My friend had to repaint part of the fuselage to make it right. Shown here with a 74 version of Cindy Lou.

nothing clever to say right now...

Hi Jeff,
Oh ma gosh! If I were dead y’all’d be talking about me rolling in my grave!

Still painted Aeronca C-3 yellow... One of the greatest marketing feats in all aviation - Piper copied the Aeronca paint color because the C-3 was selling like hotcakes and Piper had a slightly better airplane, but wanted to capitalize on the identification. It worked.

Chuckle, concur! Rickoshay, you made me think way back m-a-n-y years ago to the mid-fifties when I was instructing in B-25s at Reese at Lubbock, TX. Good chum of ours (together we'd formed EAA Chap. #19) had an old Aeronca C-3 (chuckle, "Flying Bathtub") in his hangar out at Muny. So we covered it and got it flyable, covered it with brand new aluminum colored fabric and then painted a multiplicity of various colored patches all over it - red, blue, yellow, denim, brown, green, etc. and then painted black stitching marks on the patches edges. We called that airplane "Ole Patches" and visited about every flying breakfast in that part of the country. IIRC, only had one mag, switch read OFF or ON. I remember landing it out in a cow pasture once and stuck my head out to the left to be able to look ahead under that two cylinder 36 HP E-113C engine's left jug. Oops! Fresh cow-patty, ran over it, tire threw it all over my face, splat!

best, randy

Her's the one I got to fly...we went up with two of us...bad idea, better solo. (fewer branches)

And the cub I delivered behind it.

Randy,

Boy do I remember it having just one mag and the clips that held the wires onto the spark plugs seemed way inadequate for sitting out in the breeze.

I was by myself in the one I flew. After takeoff I climbed until I was bored and was only at 1,500 feet AGL.

Warmest regards,
Rick

Rickoshay - Thinking back to those days in LBB flying Van White's "Patches", IIRC it also had carb heat on all the time? Got a kick out'a looking at that photo on here with the cabane struts/wires/overhead mast.

best, randy
