Hi All

I know its a long shot here, but I figured this is the largest collection or Warbird nuts around so why not give it a shot.

I have a good friend who is retired Air Force, and a warbird nut. He as amassed an amazing collection of warbird wrecks, parts and projects.

Among this mass of stuff, are 22 T-6's projects, 12 of them are G models. These are the first to start restoration. The first one is slated to fly in April/May and will be offered for sale.

Also in the collection are, an SE-5, a Spitfire, a Corsair, 2 Hurricanes, a P-51, a P-47........

He would like to turn this into a full time business. If anyone knows anybody who might be interested in either buying a completed T-6, or would be willing to back the venture, please let me know.

Thanks!

Where's the business... and is he hiring? :thumbsup:
While I'm not looking for a job just yet (Uncle Sam is keeping me employed for right now) I know a few people on here may be on the hunt for a new job.

He won't be hiring until he gets some funding!:D

Good point. If I had the cash... I'm buying a house right now so my own funding is a little tight right now. Keep us posted on how things progress. I wish him luck :thumbsup:
