Wendell checked that guy out a while back in that airplane. He joined us at the Thorp Boil at Sun n Fun, nice guy but the plane is pretty ruff .. invasion stripes and all.

Oddly enough from what I was told that's not much more than he paid for it (it was listed in Controller for about a year at $179000) ... it had a lot of issues early on, he's put a lot of $$ into it since. I imagine he's just trying to get his $$ out of it, but I agree that's not in my range .. especially for a two seats.

They are pretty rare. That may be his angle.
