Default Glen Spickler Tallywacker

Has anyone heard of this plane before? I saw one on that auction site quite awhile ago and hadn't seen one before. It looked like a shoulder wing Quickie Sport.

Default RE: Glen Spickler Tallywacker

It was the brainchild of Bill Wekerle, the owner who succeeded Glen Spickler. It was pretty much an upside-down Quickee on trike gear. One of my favorite sport planes - wish I had a dozen kits! BTW, Glen HATED it!

I purchased the Tallywacker kit and would frequent Bill's garage, I believe it was on Tuesday when everyone gathered. He and the guys would critique my building skills. The second visit I brought my wing halves. He looked at them, turned and tossed them in the trash and started bully wood. Handled my the bundle and said try again.

That Tallywacker was a very fun sport flier. Had a 46 Rossi installed and enjoyed every minute.

The group of flyers in Bakersfield in the lare 70's and 80's were a bunch of great guys. I moved and had lost contact over the years.
