|176--California: Aviatrix in a 1940 Stearman|

Gabe Lopez takes passengers for the ride of their life in his bright yellow Navy Stearman. When juxtaposed against a blue sky, it looks like a model-airplane; as if someone from the ground should be operating the controls.
I was hoping that Gabe would thrill me with some steep turns and tricks, so I prepared myself: I ate an ice-cream right before. I figured if something was going to come back up—it better taste good.

I took California Flight Academy up on its offer of $49 for an introductory flight. Chief instructor Greg Webster, sat me down with an interactive computer program that explained everything I would need to know about my first flight. Like Lenscrafters, it took about an hour.

Cherie looks like a natural in the driver's seat. Her quick reaction time and comfort behind the wheel impress everyone.
1. If you put nitrogen in your tires (instead of air) you may be a race-car driver.
2. If your driver’s window is mesh (instead of glass) you may be a race-car driver.
3. If your gas is blue (instead of gas-colored) you may be a race-car driver.
4. If your car expenses are more than your home expenses, you may be a race-car driver.
5. If you can change all four tires and fill up with gas in nine seconds, you may be a race-car driver.
