Long and winding road
Good old N29499, a Cessna Model 177 Cardinal.  It was underpowered, slow, and it leaked oil, but it was ours.  It cost us $10,000 and would probably be worth 10X that by now, but it cost us close to $4000 in insurance and parts - a year!  Scanned from an Ektachrome slide.

    I shoot mostly anything that I run across. BTW, that's not me in the picture, it's my wife - well her feet, anyhow - looking at our airplane the day we first saw it. I use Olympus equipment these days.
