Sorry to hear you're selling the ol' boy, Alex. I know he's been good to you. Here's hoping your next bird is as good as that one!

I used to fly a 1959, N622CA. Got my COM ticket in it. Long story, but my mom actually ended up owning it. The last survivor in a three person ownership group. Once it was hers, she oversaw the engine overhaul, the new paint, and personally redid the entire interior with her own hands. Then, sold it. Ughhh.

Beautiful bird. It's up in Michigan now. I really enjoyed flying it. Yours looks just as nice. Fantastic.

Haven't been able to fly nearly as much as I'd like--work has been pretty constraining for me for a long while now.
