The opportunities are always very far from Texas.
No kidding, it would cost 10x the purchase price to go get it.

And don't forget: "A move is worth 3/4-ths of a fire when it comes to destroying your stuff." `Twas for me - just from Texas to Florida and still looking for the muffler!

I wonder what is hiding under that canopy cover.

I saw this airplane the last time I flew to Chilliwack for pie and can confirm that the sheet metal work is first rate!

I read the ad. I still wonder what is hiding under that canopy cover.

Or, if you prefer a question rather than a statement: Why would a seller not photograph (or have photographed) the airplane with the canopy cover removed so perspective buyers could see more of the airplane?

If you read the original ad, it says: "135 hp, Lycoming O-290D turning a 3-bladed IVO Magnum prop."

Looking at those photos I do not agree. I guess there are degree's of 'first rate'?

Looks pretty good to me. Blind rivets instead of AN rivets, but it all looks very tidy from the Craigslist ad.

Obviously built on a farm by Old McDonald, with a Knick Knack Chilliwack give this plane a home…

Reminds me of the oft repeated phrase that "if you give an Englishman a piece of metal he will do something foolish with it..."

The builder of this thing must be from England.

I snooped around this plane for a while. It's well kept, and in nice shape, but the fabric is original and 30 years old, the airplane has been hangared it's whole life, and should be continued to, and that is NOT happening on my flying budget. This is a very attractive touring airplane in the European mode, and I wish I was in the position to buy it.

FWIW ...

Are you sure? The ad says it's a Sonix, whatever that is.
I am sure! I know that plane. It is a Sonex. I used to know the builder. I haven't seen him in 5 years since I moved. He never mastered take offs and landings in that airplane. It first flew around 2013 and I see it still only has 25 hours on it.
