Its harder for people to justify the $3000 expense for the donuts when they
have a $30,000 plane and the existing donuts are "working" as far as they know.

I'd suggest that those with new donuts give some taxi rides at future
MM/BAC fly-ins. Nothing sells like feeling that soft ride of the soft
donuts vs. the ride of the 30-40 year old rock hard ones.

Cloyd and I are talking about putting them on Minnie after the New Year,
and have kicked around the idea of still photos, video, and even hosting a
fly-in to see the installation.
