 I was cleaning out my storage biulding this week end and found a old copy of Air Progress October 1978 issue, with my old 7AC on the cover, I restored N85255 in 1977 an had painted it as it looks on the cover. Sold it in 1978, I still have the copy of the Air Progress, I spent lots of fun time's and trip's in the old 7AC. Steve Jensen

 To Steve Jensen, who wrote the previous comment: I have the same Air Progress magazine with this aircraft on the cover. That was my dad who bought the plane from you about 1978. I really enjoyed flying with him in the old Aeronca. There's sure a lot of history in that plane.
