Those Piper Cubs were built in my town, Lock Haven, PA. Every summer they have a Fly-In. Cubs and other Pipers come in from all over the country and meet at the old factory.

WOW!!! Awesome pic Travis for sure. What year is the Cub? Is it yours
or your family? I want one, or a Stearman Bi-Plane. I love low and slow.
Had one here in town for sale a year ago (Super Cub) that was over hours
but still very air ready. I should have got it. Was just under 8k. That's a
good price, right?

No, the '46 Cub belongs to a friend of mine. My grandpa always said if he was going to get another plane it would have been a Cub. After that flight, I know why. I've got my jeep up for sale now and as soon as it sells, I'm going to get my pilots license.

$8K, probably needed a $20K engine rebuild and maybe some other items.

$20K is a little steep. I saw one up here with a modified
VW engine in it. It flew very well I thought. I can build
that for less than $20K. Yes I know the FAA has rules and
laws and like that. But here with floats ya just land outside
of town at a private float and drive on in.

A VW won't have the horsepower to get a Cub off the ground. $15-$20K is pretty normal for an aircraft engine rebuild.
