Neither.
It got rebuilt with the RV-8 vertical and rudder that was supplied in the last RV-6 emp. kits sold.

Very nice, Scott! It would be fun to see a "before" shot to see the transition.

Very nice! Time to rename it from "Junkyard Special" to something else, maybe "Phoenix".

Very nice. I really like the first picture with the clouds in the back ground, looks like they are parting just for your plane!

I see the reason for the colors of your signature now.
That plane "pops" as the trendy crowd would say.

Awesome shots! Calendar pics I hope. It looks downright terrific in person, too!

Lets just say that the rebuild was quite extensive. Took about a year and 4 months to second first flight.






My rivet bucker.
He went on to participate in a TeenFlight RV-12 build a couple years later (just turned 23 yesterday).

`Junkyard Special' has a nice ring to it, although it definitely looks more special than junk in the photos. `Phoenix' is good too, but it didn't end too well when Jimmy Stewart flew it in the movie, so maybe stick with the first choice?
