Drive it, enjoy it, but don't abuse it. Just keep it well maintained with fresh fluids and she'll last a long time.

I swear, everytime I read a comment from Adamz, I start laughing.

OP, maybe get yourself a catch can for the motor. As far as protecting the transmission, just don't rev it up in neutral and drop it into drive.

Well maintained and clean. Dont dump the clutch very often. The harder you drive the car the more it wears out, true with any machine. I take mine to the drag strip, but when I'm not there I don't gendrally drive like hell. I plan on this car still runningnstrong and looking good with 130,000 plus miles on it.

And that's a knock on my buddy who's unmaintained 2000 Z28 with 130,000 miles on it was completely faloing apart and now doesn't run. Oh he changes his own oil, but always drives like bat out of hell and doesn't clean the car. Now it sits, hasn't been washed in yrs, covered up on a street outside another buddy's house. I make fun of him a lot.

I wouldn't think he'd be doing much dropping it in drive, since he has a manual.

Back in the day someone told me the quickest way to destroy a car is to give it to a teenager.
That tidbit of wisdom applies here.
