no, I decided to pass on that one. The price was right and the engine and prop were worth that much at least.

That is a very nice airplane. I have flown it and it is a performer. Good catch!

Thanks, I'm loving being back in the thorp saddle. Put 5hrs on it this weekend, the autopilot is spectacular, take off performance is great, and it's 150kt airplane all day long on very little fuel.
