Default Why Do They Call It Quickie 500?

Guys, I decided to put the fuselage together on the Spickler Quickie 500 prototype kit tonight to make sure everything fits OK brfore ordering. Well all went together great. I have had a few people ask me why it was called a Quickie 500. Well for one it went together fast! Here is a picture of the fuselage I built tonight. I clocked myself just to see how fast the build would go. Here is exactly 1 hour's work with CA and 5 minute epoxy!!! This is one reason they were called Quickie 500!!

John Gibson tells the story of a guy who crashed during the Saturday race. Retired to the hotel room that evening with CA, 5 minute epoxy and some monocote and was test flying his new racer the next morning before the race!! Now that's quick. Anymore good Quickie stories out there?
