New metal for me also
« on: March 14, 2019, 09:22:43 PM »
I know there is at least one airplane owner on this site .

I thought I would show you my new old airplane.

I sold the Cessna 177 Cardinal and picked up this 64 S35 Bonanza.It has needed a lot of work and Im almost done.

You think sleds can burn up your lunch money!

Hey Andy, you sure this isn't you posting on another user name? Looks like your garage/hanger. When did you add the carpet? :shrug:
Looks nice!!!

SP's hanger got "less clean" since the last time you've seen it  :floor:

Nice ride Zman! I could use one of those!

I had a 75 cardinal - should have kept it.  sold it and bought a 72 Cherokee 6 300 w/seating for 7.   flying pick up truck  1100 lbs load with fuel fuel   also burned a lot of fuel w/flight plan speed of 140 kts (and that was generous)   keeping up with the fuel bill was getting tough.  slowest 300 HP plane but you could carry a lot
