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.
