  1. Just a lurker here, "I have a Cessna Cardinal, drooling over a Mooney" One thing in common between the Cardinal and the Mooney's are wet wings. My 68 Cardinal has only leaked from the fuel sender's gasket and the rest of the Cardinal fleet seldom report leaking fuel tank's. Now that is not to say that some in the fleet have not had wing tank leaks but they are the exception not the rule. Both Mooney's and Cardinal's wing flex in flight, but the Cardinal's landing gear are not attached to wing's where the Mooney's are. " just trying to find a correlation between leaks and weak landing pucks"
  2. Back a number of years ago, the late Russell Stallings then owner of Southwest Texas Aviation had looked at that F over in Lockhart. He stated then that it would cost more to put in the air then what he could part it out for. A number of people have talked to the owner about buying it. One of the "old guys" that man the FBO on the weekends "a prior mooney owner" would pull it out and wash it down, and keep the air up in the tire's even offered to run it around the pattern from time to time to keep it going but the owner wanted none of that. So it sits and draws the curiosity of visitors..
  3. On a positive note, it is not a V tail Bonanza with magnesium ruddervators
