  1. Thats Awesome..... You could actually throw all 4 of them in a Bonanza , and put fuel in too !!!!
  2. That was taken by a Twinkie..... We reserve the Cubs for the Mooney shoots !!!!
  3. No , Way too serious , I have already done the Caravan....
  4. Sorry Ant , Maybe this looks more familiar...
  5. Try this on for an Avatar
  6. No , I shot it at Peter Garmins Dental salon and spa.... The place is bangin !!!! Marble counters , hot hygienists , with ample breasts , and midgets that brush your teeth , and clean your gums....
  7. Add 2 minutes a side to remove the lower cheeks ...
  8. I don't mean to gloat , But I am pretty well stocked..... MAKE SURE it is not the relay.....
  9. How about 6 seconds....
  10. Agreed Byron , But everything got modern in the 59 K model , and you can get 59 to 65 Bos in annual for less than 50 K ,
  11. There are so many parts mules , that with the exception of the Ruddervators , there are used parts galore , Same with the Mooneys , Problem with the Mooneys is corrosion is really becoming prevalent in the older airframes......
  12. Seriously , and no offense to the OP , but 2600 + hours , is grounds for immediate overhaul......
  13. An early Bonanza
  14. The Commanche , I have never seen a Mooney with tip tanks...
  15. I could be happy with 600.00 , These are over 1500 , if I remember correctly...
  16. No Chris , mine is a King , I was questioning whether his was King or not..
  17. If this is a King I have a new one ,
  18. Very few planes that I have flown , and not enjoyed , Probably the most enjoyable is the V tail , and the least enjoyable is the 210 ....
  19. The "trick" is to take a 2 foot 2x4 , and rest it against the top edge of the tank skin , where it overlaps the wing , and smack it with a mallet , sometimes they wont move...
  20. Did you use a mallet and a 2x4 to dislodge the tank , or did you fight it...
  21. To add insult to injury , the piper tank comes off with the removal of about 60 screws and two hoses , and can be sent out and rebuilt for about 800 dollars ..... I have never had to have one repaired , but removed many , for a spar inspection AD.... ( you have to inspect the spar for corrosion , and then zinc chromate the spar )
  22. Yes because everybody is just thrilled when they have to spend 2000.00 on their car when the head gasket blows , because they were too ignorant to change the anti freeze for the last 8 years , And if your talking about simple careers , at least Doctors get to BURY their mistakes...... The rest of us have to live with ours....... My former career was one of the absolute worst when it comes to happy customers....... Bad outcomes are a natural occurrence in my former career , I don't know too many people that haven't taken a car back to the dealer many times , for the same repair , Or worse , went to a shop for an oil change , and got sold a 900.00 bill of goods...... There are a lot more Doctors with 4 and 5 star yelp ratings , than car repair places....... I earned the gold star...... Because I was honest , stood behind my product , and treated my customers as my employers , not profit centers.....
  23. The natural progression from an older Mooney is usually a Bonanza or Commanche.... I have seen this a lot...
