I can't believe I am visiting this topic again. That's ridiculous, what was I thinking, of course we're revisiting this topic again. Every time we take a long trip my bride constantly reminds me we need more speed if we intend to travel like we plan. I know she's right but I'm attached to our Sundowner and her easy keeping ways.
We plan to travel and explore the southwest and eventually work our way up the west coast. This will require speed and increased altitude capability.
I've emailed an owner on his Debonair, looking for more info and I just joined the American Bonanza Society. Baby steps, but very scary ones for me.
