Yep.... know all about the 90/90 deal with airplanes!  I built a minimax ultalight from plans back in the early 90's when I was single.... took me 1.5 yrs.  Won honorable mention with it at Oshkosh.  My current project, a plans built DR107 One Design may never get finished lol..... too many hobbies.

People say it's the coolest thing at the track , peeling clear coat and all .
In my humble opinion,  if the green coach fires up , builds air and stands up on the suspension,  goes into gear ,etc , might be worth further investigation.  Those cracked tires though..
Good luck .

Would love to see some pictures of your '86.

Tom,
I am heading through AZ to Barstow this weekend. I always carry a "sun shovel" when traveling in AZ this time of year just in case it gets really deep.

What kind of mileage do you get pulling the trailer?  What does the trailer weigh?
