Some guys still use a P-51 or, till recently, R-3350 Sea Fury for personal business travel. Not always the most practical but you get full style points.

Gulfstream for corporate style points if it was used for business, otherwise an A-26 so I could bring some friends. For solo transportation, a Bearcat.

Howard.
Faster and cheaper than a Connie, and if my clients are more impressed by a Gulstream, then I probably would need them as clients<G>

+1 on the HOWARD, a Gulfstream says 'I'm here' a HOWARD says 'I've arrived'
