A gent on the airfield found a "deal" on a C150 recently. He is now forking out a bunch of cash to make it airworthy thanks to years of pencil whipped annuals and shoddy repairs.

Like buying anything, let the buyer beware. There are some very good deals and some very bad ones that initially look good. Quite a few years ago a friend got a great deal on a Cessna 170B that was 800 miles away but having been assured by a local mechanic whose father, also an AME, had been taking care of it for the owner who was a good friend of his, he bought it sight unseen. He caught a ride there and started to fly it back. The plane flew rather odd and seemed way out of trim. When he stopped for his first tank of fuel and found it took 4 quarts of oil, he was having some doubts. Most planes are sort of money pits but that one took the cake as the problems were very serious and ran from one end to the other. The engine with "100 hours since OH" was totally worn out. Even the case wasn't salvageable. The main gear mounts were both cracked and it was amazing that the gear didn't fail. The mechanic that found that problem commented to him, "you must sure land gently" as he couldn't believe it hadn't collapsed.

These planes are old and have a lot of history, not all of which is shown in the logs.
