Thanks! I was looking at Grummans, too. This was the right plane at the right time. It was in much better shape than the other trainers for sale locally. There is a company down in TX doing taildragger and O-320 conversions for the AA1 series.
At least for now, the way to get a 150hp Cessna 150 is to buy one that has already been converted. I'm told that the current STC holder is extremely difficult to work with. I'd love to see a conversion for the IO-240.

It depends how long your skis are. A ski rack will slow you down by at least 5 knots
I guess your medical would depend on whether or not your ear bothers you at altitude. They're pretty good about certifying pilots who aren't at risk for causing an accident.
