Not a bad way to get around. Congrats to the new owner of the TS-11. Along with the privately owned Hawker Hunters it would be a great display at any local airshow.

So is his wife still complaining?

We are currently dismantling the L-29 we bought as unairworthy for road transport to our new hangar at a different airfield, though it looks quite ok inside and can probably made airworthy again (pending paperwork and registration issues, from a technical point of view it is lot of work, but it is doable). The aircraft has been sitting outside for years since the original owner went bankrupt and just walked away. We basically bought it from the airport for the equivalent of several years worth of accumulated parking fees.
The biggest pain is the remaining wingspan after removing the outer wing panels. With 3.7 meters we are probably going to need to hire a trucking company for oversize freight. In any case, it is only for about 10 km.
