"Blue Julie" underwent a thorough annual inspection/restoration in 1995 - just 10 months after being acquired by her current owner. The result was a beautiful transformation from an ugly duckling with a runout engine to a nearly new beauty that still has people calling her "the best looking Cherokee on the field." Considering she's based at the busiest GA airport in the world (VNY), that's quite a compliment.

But her beauty is more that skin-deep. She was gone through spinner-to-tail beginning with a firewall-forward overhaul, continuing through a replacement of all gyros, and nearly all wearable control items. Once pronounced fit, she was given the full beauty treatment with a strip-and-paint, fresh glass and a full set of new threads inside.

In the past five years the few remaining items that made sense to replace have been. Now she's about as fit and maintenance-free as any 32-year old could ever hope to be. She's looking for a new home with an appreciative pilot so that her current caretaker can step up the ladder to something more substantial (and likely more complicated, troublesome and finicky).
