    Ok~ What do you know about this, Collector friends. I was at a living estate sale and the Gentleman who owned this sweet little number was the same man that assembled it, umpteen years ago. He worked at our local community college as a Professor. He mentioned to me that it hung in his office for years. He did have an engine in it, but only drove it around on the ground. It has a six foot wing span. It is AMAZING. He gifted me so many fantastic things at this sale ~ that I am still speechless~ well almost. The one thing I missed in the wonder of this occasion was the year this Piper Cub was created. He said it was one of the first made.
