    Default Sumthin Else part on craigslist

    So I stumbled across this craigslist ad in San Francisco...Anyone able to positively identify it as a blade from Crockers Sumthin Else P-51?...It may be the angle of the photo, but it doesn't quite look like a P-51 blade in the photos to me.

    So, for those of us not in the know, why are all the blades from this prop scattered to the winds?

    John Crocker had a hard landing at Boeing Field in "Sumthin Else" that damaged the blades about 1990.
    Plane sat for several years, then was sold and returned to stock. The 4 damaged blades were offered for sale on a message board a few years ago & I think the buyers were supposed to pick them up at the races. I remember Scotty requesting the one with the most damage.
