I didn't realize this was a sub forum. Once I get a moment, I'll upload a spreadsheet I created (with some help) that shows a ballpark of ownership costs. I'd say there are a few owner types out there. Cheap and smart. With that said, I used to account for nearly every penny the first year I owned <---- my Stinson. I really had no reason to, as it wasn't a justification for ownership. But the formulas are there to see about affording any other types.
