johnny - I was browsing an auction site and saw this and thought of you.
Aircraft Auction (http://www.auction.com/auction-details-aviation.php?auctionID=A-001&utm_source=Auction_Home&utm_medium=Button_Link_top&utm_campaign=Aircraft_Auction#;) I'm sure you'll buy one of everything.
I'm surprised that there are planes from the '30's still in service.

Why do you torture me? :(
I wouldn't mind that T-34B... or any of them, really. :p
Look at #13 - it is Sky King's Songbird!

Songbird III is one of the actual Cessna's used in the television series "Sky King" with its primary role being display and advertising.
Wow. Sky King was before my time, but my dad always liked the 310 because of it. (I always liked the 310 too, because it looks like a shark.)

I can't get past #1 - a Paris Jet starting at only 70K. Oh, wait, that's just for the fuel ...

The Sky King 310D didn't sell - their opening bid was $169K.
#4 - the little amphibian went for only $15K.
Wow - #7, the V35 Bonanza went for $117.5K! I had no idea that planes went so high.

I had no idea that planes went so high.
Imagine if the atmosphere didn't thin out...

Johnny - Your T-34B just sold for $90K.

Not bad. The ones I've browsed before were selling for $150,000 to $240,000. I don't remember if this one had the required spar replacement, which costs about $45,000.

Wow! This plane (http://www.auction.com/property-aviation.php?auctionID=A-001&itemID=77&venueId=1229&start=0&flgRemoved=0) sold for $935,000! What makes it worth that much? It just looks like a plane.

Velocity Deception (http://www.auction.com/property-aviation.php?auctionID=A-001&itemID=54&venueId=1229&start=0&flgRemoved=0) just sold for $75K. That's a cool looking plane!

I've never flown a turboprop (nor did the turbine transition in helicopters), but it seems that if you put a jet in the nose the price increases dramatically. Also, the turbine-powered Socata is a bigger plane than the piston-powered Trinidad one.
