North American something... based on AT-6 trainer... I think.

If this was a Hollywood move, there would be a giant explosion! I guess this proves the bad visibility when taxing a WWII plane... but still, hitting a CAR?!?

My grandfather says he remembers one of the mustangs at his base hitting a car, an officer's if I remember correctly, while taxiing.

Good thing I saved a bundle on my auto insurance by switching to GIECO (http://www.geico.com/).

I saw Bob Hoover do the same thing in a P-51 at the Reno air races, in the late 80s. He taxied into a pick-up, tore the truck up, and bent the crank of his Mustang.
