Recently? Someone hire Fred to do a pre-buy? I think that I'd rather have a Widgeon with Rangers than one with the Lycoming radials. Just my opinion. Haven't looked in a while, but last time I did, the seller was asking way too much money for this Widgeon.

Not sure of the fine details, a bunch of work was recently done to it, it was flown a few times. I don't believe it sold. The asking price has been dropping, at some point I'm sure it'll change hands.

Mark has it right on all counts.
I'm sure someone will come along that wants a Classic and will give the TLC it needs and deserves.

THAT! is the proper noise for a Widgeon to make.
