Mooney drivers share a unique and deeply seated characteristic - they like to go fast! If a Cessna is akin to a Chevrolet and a Bonanza is akin to a Mercedes, then the Mooney is akin to a Porche. Mooneys are among the most effecient and structurally sound airplanes manufactured. The low profile cross-section and laminar flow wings reduce drag to enable the fast air speeds typically unachievable in other manufacturers' airplanes with similar horsepower. The tubular steel frame, acting as a cockpit roll cage, along with the wingtip-to-wingtip wing spar make the Mooney airframe the strongest and safest among GA airplanes.
The M20F Executive is a fantastic cross-country platform and you will be hard-pressed to distinguish this particular airplane, with the modifications, from a full-fledged 201in speed or performance. It just came out of Annual Inspection and it's ready to fly. It could use a little polishing and waxing to bring out the luster in the paint (it's just been too cold here in NJ to do that), so buy it now and you'll have plenty of time to make it shine for Spring.
