"Even losers get lucky some times"

Just got this off ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/200734567222?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649 -- Queen Bee (looks like it has run a bit, but has box, wrenches and instructions), prop, and couple Sullivan fuel tanks. See how she cleans up.

I've got more engines than airplanes now: does this make me a collector? Smile

True, but at least it is only coming from Oregon, not Guangdong.

I just got a lot off of Ebay that I thought was a Tee Dee .049 and a Tee Dee .020 plus a couple of other engines. Turned to be Tee Dee .09 and a Tee Dee .010. Happy happy.

Lucky, you made a score on that .074!

This forum has turned many people into collectors, I may have to add a disclaimer on the register page of this forum "WARNING: Be prepared to spend large amounts of money and have more engines than you "need"!"

Of course, we're then faced with defining the term: "Need"!
