Having owned and rebuilt over 70 AT-6’s and Harvard’s over the years, I’ve accumulated a large amount of research material. With this I’ve found the many identities that N3171P has carried. First, it was registered incorrectly in the U.S. when they used the South African Air Force Serial # of ‘7320’. They had also transposed a 41 in the front of the ‘7320’, making what they thought was a USAAF number of 41-7320.
Racing the T-6 in Reno's gold race takes a dedicated team, lots of work, great sponsors and cubic dollars. This has netted the Midnight Miss IIIs team six gold wins. Nick Macy in #6 Six-Cat has six wins, and a record setting race speed of 247mph! Nick is the reason I race; it's my brother racer's fault, he gives me my competitive spirit.
