Over a million in my currency.
Could buy a couple of aeroplanes for that and a few hundred hours of
fun for that

That's just plane crazy!

It IS a really pretty airplane with a very nice interior and paint job--and
I love the tip tanks and one peice windshield.

But, gimme a break. A feind, deceased several years ago, had a 260 with
quite a few speed mods and a 3 blade McCauley. The reason for the McCauley
was that the old 2 blade prop had been in need of overhaul and the new Black
Mack was certificated for the engine, cost less than the overhaul, and
provided some performance improvement with an all new prop. After he died,
his widow sold it for a price in the 80's and all agreed that she got fair
value. I'm fairly confident that another hundred to hundred and twenty
grand would change his plane into this one.

Just my personal opinion, which I believe to be about the same as yours,
free of charge and worth every penny...

Peter

Presumably they actually put the decimal point in the wrong place. It might be
interesrting to check.

Trying to figure out the flaw in my logic here, maybe you can help.
Two Ercoupes at two seats each equals one 4 seat Comanche. Two
Ercoupes each at 100 mph would be faster than a comanche at 180 miles
an hour, and two two bladed props is one more blade than a three
bladed one.

The Comanche does win on fuel though, probably 10 gph vs two Ercoupes
at 4 gph each.

Yep.

Well, more precisely, it made it back to the airport. I haven't
driven it, or checked to see if there is any fuel in it!

BTW: I'm not "back" cuz of any "beating" -- I'm back because of the
heavy-handed censorship that resulted in that thread being summarily
deleted. After some long talks with the moderators (I know two of
them), in which one of them has profusely apologized (he really DID
think they were doing the right thing, I'll give him credit for that)
I've decided to give PofA a rest for a while. You'll see me over on
AOPA's red board, mostly.

Well, for simple fun flying, the 'Coupe is hard to beat. There is
NOTHING like flying around on a nice evening, with the "top down" and
your arm hanging out the window, like an old '57 Chevy. It's an
experience I will never forget.

On the other hand, if you want to fly from Texas to Oklahoma, I'd take
the Comanche. Or, more economically, my Pathfinder.
