Exactly, Bob, I am browsing these archive COX photos with yearning eyes...I would love to have been born and lived in the US anyway, but the accessibility to COX stuff in my childhood would have added a great life experience, that I am tasting only now, little-by-little, in my 2nd childhood.

BTW I just started reading the various articles at https://www.airplanesandrockets.com where the links in my above post come from, and find quite a lot of good read stuff!!!

I have about 200 Cox engines, and many of their models. I wonder how many have been touched by those ladies. Got to be a few.

Look at the jumble of parts on the far right. Wow. Looks like Piper Cubs in the foreground.

Exactly the same thoughts revolving in my mind...I wonder if any of my old-stock taper bore TeeDee-s or red postage stamp backplate reedies may have gone through the hands of those employees on the pics...when I went to see the COX factories in Santa Ana a few years ago  - not just the old one, a Quonset hut on Poinsettia Ave, but the later one on East Warner - I had a 010 with me just for making a fun circle for it around the world...first from a US ebayer to me in Hungary then back to the US to the exact same place it was made ...(and of course back to Hungary again) ...other than those COX engines returned for warranty reasons, not too many have made it back to where they were made...a bit lunatic, I know, but part of my COX enthusiasm.

These archive black and white pictures show the factory in its heydays with neatly organized manufacturing (i.e. manual assembly) workplaces, but some photos made later in the 90's, that Mauricio posted here on CEF from the archives of a COX sales rep in Argentina, already show the sign of decline...https://www.coxengineforum.com/t12914-history-of-cox-in-argentina?highlight=cox+in+argentina

Not lunacy Andras, sentimentalists. 🙂 Although you have to be a little nuts to be a sentimentalist.

Thanks for reviving Mauricio's thread. I booked it this time.

You are right Bob...the various Traveling Engines programs here in fact sprout from similar sentimentalism of participants here on CEF, so I do not feel lunatic any more Very Happy

I guess I’m a bit sentimental as well…. I have two PeeWee .020’s that mom bought for me when I was a kid…. One is all silver and was on the lime green Little Stinker type…. The other has the red tank and drive and was bought along with a Goldberg Ranger 30 from the local hobby shop….Looking back, I know these were purchased when the family budget was pretty tight…. Fortunate to still have them …and the memories…

I did the same a couple years ago when my son, daughter, and I went back to my old home town in Raymond New Hampshire.  Stayed at a AirB&B cottage a few yards where we had our old summer cottage on Onway Lake.  Swam in that lake every summer from eight YO until I joined the Navy.  Walked across it almost every winter too.  Ice fishing.

Also visited the Hobby Shop in Exeter where I bought all my Cox engines and Hollow Log airplanes some 70 years before. Posted this picture here before.

Good for you Bob, that your old hobbyshop still exists...as for the COX facilities nowadays:

Myself in 2018 with the above chanted TeeDee 010  at the former Poinsettia, and later, East Warner factories of COX, my oldstock 010 may have been born in either of the 2 places
