Default Looking for local RV8 owners - TN/KY

I live in Middle TN and would like to connect with RV8 drivers locally as Iím very close to beginning a personal RV8 project. If anyone is interested or available, would be great to connect.

Best,
Ron

I live in Atlanta. Tennessee is not that far away. BUT, I can only fly you, wasn't a builder. I'm guessing you're looking for a builder??

HA!! I'm an old crusty marine too. Choppers---Vietnam.

Semper!! Super appreciate you reaching out. No - Atlanta is not far. Iím looking for both - not just builders. Iíve never been able to see an 8 up close which is first priority to make sure this is the project I want. Iíd love to work out a time and place to meet.

What airport works best for you? (And then of course, it never stops raining here in ATL.---so that might screw things up a bit.)

An RV 8 is a bit of a baby P-51. If your honey doesn't like airplanes, RV 8's are good. If she wants to fly with you, get a side by side.

Ron,

Built it and an Rv10.

Glad to show it to you and discuss building.
