Warm. It shares it's name with a late 70s Gene Wilder/RIchard Pryor movie.

Another forum I visit has a weekly car contest with rules.
The poster shows a picture of a production car on Monday.
Concepts, customs, and modified (except for wheels) not allowed.
Players are allowed ONE guess.
The winner is declared on Friday.
The winner, if there is one, posts a car the following Monday.
We're on week 161 today.
It would be tougher to stump this diverse group than the smaller bunch over there, I think.

Here's a plane:

You are close. It is an American built plane, regardless of the swastika.

Some clues for this one:

Herman Goering was so taken with this plane that he ordered several for the Luftwaffe after seeing them used as dive bombers.

The spark of the idea for the Stuka was this plane.

The manufacturer of this aircraft went on to produce a VERY famous WW2 fighter used by the U.S.A.A.C. and China.

Curtis "Goshawk"
I believe it was also configured with an inline engine?

Not the Goshawk, but very very close! The Goshawk had a larger "razorback" than this plane and a slightly shorter fuselage. The Goshawk was the domestic version of this aircraft. This plane is the export version and had some minor differences and a different designation.

A Goshawk:

Note the arresting hook and larger spine of the Goshawk as well as a rear wheel and not a skid. The Goshawk was beefed up for carrier landings. The landing gear was also wider and heavier than the other plane and it had wing hardpoints.

There was a very good movie about the Arrow on TV. It starred Dan Akroyd and many other talents and was the story of how Canada's great leap forward was killed in infancy. The Arrow was a better plane than anything anyone else had at the time and set the stage for things to come. Many of the folks who worked on the Arrow went on to work at NASA on the moon landing project.

There is a legend that a single Arrow survived and is held in a secret location in Canada to this day

My uncle was actually one of the head guys who worked on the missle guidance systems and avionics on the Arrow. He has some neat stories about the plane...

It's not unusual that early US jets look so much like the Avro Arrow. The Arrow set the stage and was an inspiration for aircraft designers of the era

On the right track. Here's a clue for you: It was the first airplane since WWII to be produced in Western Germany.

F107. I just love jets from that era such as the Phantom, the A7, and the F100 series. They are kinda like the "muscle cars" of aviation history.
