“Historic preservationists make it last longer” (bumper sticker)

A popular meme in the late 1970s was how various professions “do it”—a mild sex pun. For example, “Divers Do It Deeper.” Preservation in Pink did a bumper sticker in 2011:

“Historic Preservationists Make it Last LONGER.”

The saying has also been printed on T-shirts.

("Historic Preservationists Make it Last LONGER.”—ed.)
Something fun for your Monday!  A historic preservation bumper sticker, just in time for road trip season. You know you want one – or rather, your car wants one!  After I lost Derby and my preservation bumper stick from Mary Washington, Vinny went on a search for a look-a-like bumper sticker. Without luck, he decided to create a bumper sticker just like my old one (what can I say – I know what I like), but he added a flamingo for Preservation in Pink. It is even better than the old one!  And now my car continues to get double takes wherever we go. It is always entertaining.
