    I'm pretty sure the first rule of airplane ownership is to spell the airplane name correctly...:D. Congrats on the speed upgrade..

    Congrats! I think my next plane will be a Bo or Twin Bo. I got spoiled by that "robust" feel that Beech aircraft have....Cessnas and Pipers just don't feel the same.

    Very nice looking plane and panel. Seems like you have mostly up to date equipment, do you plan on making everything look cleaner, maybe a new panel cover or move things around?

    Same as I said on the Red Board. It's a beautiful airplane. A joy to fly. Of all the singles I've flown, the '66 Deb I flew regularly for a few years is my traveling favorite.

    Which engine?

    Now there's a Debbie that's definitely not a downer. Have fun with your new airplane.

    Everything is going to stay the same on the panel. It's dark but doable and easy to clean. First priority will be shoulder belts. I got a screaming deal since it's right at TBO. The IO 470 has been very well cared for by the previous owner and the shop I used for my sundowner. Oil changes every twenty hours with cam guard, avblend and Alcor TCP fuel treatment. Great compressions and clean filters have been the norm.
