We've all seen the derelict planes ranging from old Piper Tri-Pacers on up to Lear 25's on the various ramps around the country. How come nobody is taking these planes (like all the car guys do with the old cars) and refurbishing them to modern (or even classical) day standards? Is there just no profit in doing it? Edit to add: What I mean by "nobody", is a basically team of A&P/AI's, painters, avionic experts, upholsters, etc. etc. who could all go in on an airplane, do their magic, then turn around and sell it for a profit.
