I didn't have the money to start my training and part of the agreement was that I was to pay for all the flight time up front before beginning. At the time I had an interest in Model A Ford cars. I owned several cars in various different stages and also many extra parts. This was going to be my way to finance my training. I ran a couple ads in the local paper and by the end of the day, everything was gone and I was ready to get started with my training.
