Melissa, my 1969 V35A, was purchased from Elyria Ohio in 1999. She is in great shape on the outside and needs panel work on the inside. With only 2600 hours, she is pretty solid. Flying the V35A is straight and stable and it is one of the easiest airplanes to land that I have flown. Drop the gear, flaps, flare, and look at the end of the runway while she settles to the surface. At 21.5" and 2200 rpm, I get about 160 KTAS. My wife was getting miffed because I was showing friends pictures of the airplane and not pictures of her and the kids. I learned that lesson the hard way, get a picture of them in front of the airplane!
