It's been 27 years of driving joy!

Yes as matter of fact, I have the Luck o'the Irish...everything I touch turns to fertilizer of the bovine variety.

To day I celebrated by going to a car show.
Topless Bunny still drives like the day it was new!
Ya know I miss only a few cars, that I wished I kept, but alas....
Mine were my 67MG, my 72 Rover 3500s and my 81 Diesel bunny....I too drove that off the showroom, and for 20 years it never let me down.
Gee If I still owned it, I probably would of had over 400-500K by now easily, but then never would have switched to a cabby and meet the wonderful folks that I have on this forum.....

Congrats, Kudos, and mostly awesomeness on the concurrent ownership, maintenance, and enjoyment of a good investment.
You need to treat the bunny to a tank of 130 Av Gas.... ( well ok high test)....

But I will tell you that a car runs really well on 130 Av Gas.... although it was about 4 dollars a gallon when I last bought a tank in the 70's.

Ya just don't see 115/130 Avgas any more. That stuff is really hard to find. All I've seen in the last 20 years is 100LL.
I guess a tank of Premium will have to do.

That sounds like a compliment, so thanks.

All it takes is regular maintenance and that special feeling you get when you put the car in gear and go for a cruise.
