Class News Update - Cliff Hindman

7 Feb 2021

Buster and I have been trading e-mails the last several days comparing notes on our respective toys and hobbies. He's settled down near Birmingham, AL and enjoying watching his grandson (14) play hockey, among other things.

I was telling him about my three classic Honda motorcycles, and he told me that he had a Honda CL100 that he rode the stuffing out of back in his high school days. I remember those bikes well, having worked on many of them during my time as a Honda mechanic at our local dealership during my high school days. That led to Buster sending me pics of two of his favorite toys, a 1958 Land Rover and a 1982 ASW-20 glider:

He got the Land Rover from a friend ('93 grad) who brought it back to the US after being stationed at Mildenhall. Although the body and chassis are original, the drivetrain is a mix of "newer" parts. Buster says that, despite being a "petrol" engine (not diesel), it'll climb a tree in 4WD.

Cliff intends to race the glider in April at the Region 5 North competition in Perry, SC.
