    Freezing rain in the forecast for the weekend but 50s today! Exercised my airplane to commute over and give two lessons in what I have come to call the "Unicorn Pacer." She's s little rough around the edges but everything works and the engine runs well.

    The Pacer in the foreground is a 1950 PA-20-115. It originally had narrow gear (like all Pacers then) but it has an O-235 and no flaps, I haven't seen a production list but it sounds like they didn't build many of them! Here is the thread discussing them:
