    1987: P-51XR N6WJ Griffon engine racer created - showed at Reno '88
    crashed at Reno -named "Precious Metal" like 44-73518
    Many thought N5483V was N6WJ, but just the tail section was used.
    1995: P-51XR N6WJ returned to Reno, placed 1st in Silver
    Did not race for many years.
    2000: sale to Ron Buccarelli
    2001: return to the Reno Air Races (races canceled after 9-11-01)
