I could not find the Porterfield in Seminole, Tx Ad in Barnstormers. Maybe you could direct me to it.

Seminole is only 100 miles from me and the guy called me yesterday looking for a Porterfield data plate. He didn't mention it was for sale. 

The airplane was found in a barn in west Texas over 20 yrs ago. There were 2 in the barn and had been there since the late 40's or early 50's. I have the other one.

The man that had found it 20 yrs ago took it to Midland, Tx and had rebuilt the engine a Lycoming 65 and had done some other work to it. He was in his 80's at that time and died in his Bonanza. 

The airplane was sold to another guy in Midland, whom had it hangered and didn't pay the rent. I saw it in that hanger about 5 yrs ago and made them an offer. Within a couple months they sold it to the guy in Seminole. I had not heard any more about it until yesterday when he called.

Tom,

If you click on search ads, then type in Porterfield, the ad will come up. I searched a bunch of other categories and found nothing until I used the search ad feature.
