  1. Interesting seeing this plane, I worked on it over 30 years ago. Under previous owner it ran away after a prop start, so ended up with a new left wing and prop/engine. "2 - 5gal containers of gas" Back then a bunch of guys around there were big into using automotive gas, so it sounds like they still are.

    1. That's hilarious but not surprising. You should hear stories of some of the Southeastern crop dusters I knew back in the day. But I have the reverse story. A racer buddy used to buy 100LL from the FBO pump for his Chevelle street rod. So I assume you recognize it from the unusual color scheme?

      Some years ago I decided to go through all my old early days PPL VHS flight videos and burn them to DVD. Seeing the tail numbers, it raised curiosity on wondering whatever happened to those 1970s and 1980s model 172s and 182s. Most are still flying with a few lost to crashes or just retired and some tail numbers reassigned to different aircraft registry.
