  1. @ChacortaWelcome. I'm a new member of the Mooney Class of 2019 thanks to the Mooneyspace community. I've only flown a C and enjoy it immensely thanks to the manual flaps and J-bar gear. I have far less hours than you and can say it was an easy transition. Take the first ride and join in--you won't regret it!
  2. Holy necro post----was surprised to see this beautiful aircraft pop up for sale. Looks like this plane in in Madison MS now. Good luck with the search. Check out AAA. They have a 231 for sale with great paint but needs a panel and interior. https://www.controller.com/listings/aircraft/for-sale/31466369/1980-mooney-m20k-231?dlr=1&pcid=17527&crmid=614667&if=1
  3. @onefatguy@icloud.comWelcome back! you're in good company. I was in your situation a couple of months ago and am now a happy owner. of course, this was after a lot of reading and MS advice.
  4. I think the correct forum may be the trash. Almost seems like he was a troll or a scammer of some sort. Joined & 1st post on Saturday, last login was Sunday. Suspicious.
  5. Brett called me last night since I was on his wait list. I'm working on another plane so my timing was off on this one. So, Brett's plane is still available...give him a call!
  6. Thanks to all of your for your feedback. I'm working on a deal to secure a C that's been hangared with a very low time engine and very clean inside. Basic plan that's flyable, reliable and ready for avionics upgrades when I'm ready. Will update you later.
  7. Regardless--the sexy red E model is just out of my cash range. Further updates--called about 5 planes today and all are pending sell. Specifically, the pineapple express (F model) has a 4 person waiting list, the gray one in Lubbock is sold as well. Haven't called on sexy red E...we'll see. Drove by the airport to look at the turkey C model that started this thread--he does have a cover on it More to follow.
  8. Understand Neil--this was the shop I was going to use for the turkey and I didn't expect such a long wait for a PPI.

  10. I called our local MSC today and they're booked out through April--for even prebuys... This will be a long road.
  11. E-mail sent to @jgarrison requesting the value guide. Neil--thanks for the feedback on the compressions. @xcrmckenna -- thanks for your Mooney story--you are a patient man. And, there's a lot of J's on the market now...
  12. - A- I think any plane that you can have, own and the freedom to go whenever and wherever you want is a temptress. I just want my temptress to be a Mooney :0 I appreciate the story and analogy. My routine mission is the greater new England region with occasional jaunts elsewhere. Likely with my wife and I and my son for the next 1 1/2 years. (Who doesn't want to go to OSH with the caravan?) Hence to need to fly and not "not on the phone with your mechanic all the time." as a couple of you have said... I'm scouring everything today...I'll still look at this one Friday, as there is always something to learn and it's only 8 miles from my house.
  13. Yes, they are twins and they're beautiful. At least, without looking at the logs they show as good and clean all the way. A parent should be so proud. Any thoughts on the Pineapple Express? Cleaner, updated and a classic interior.
  14. Thank you gsxr. Dave and the pilot Neil. BTW, I have been looking nationally, and finally elected to call about this one as the "good" planes were selling fast and I couldn't respond as fast. BTW, Dave's approach is probably my preferred approach: get my foot in the door and perform avionics and cosmetic improvements as time goes on. Incidentally, one more reason for an immediately flyable aircraft is that my 17-year old soon will soon have his PP as well. So our goal would be to get to 200 hrs the first year and then to about 100 hrs/year after that. How's that for dreaming? Finally. I've been eyeing @Mooneymuscle56m aircraft for sale as well. Haven't call him yet either....
