Default Mooney Rocket

Is anyone interested in a Mooney Rocket? A friend here has one up for sale,
$150,000(us). The 325hp TSIO 520 has 405 hours, the airframe about 7000.
Extra tanks, spoilers, GM530 etc. I do believe it has a minor damage
history, gear up landings. (Yes, plural)

7000 hours on the airframe? Are you sure it isn't the allusive Mooney
172? ;-)

A friend of mine has one.
On a 1 hour flight his numbers are within minutes of a 757.
Impressive - but if your mission is to just go fly around for fun then
it is a very expensive toy to operate.

Does his pre-flight include a self search? :-)
