Clutch slip or ?

Hey all,

New problem to deal with, the clutch is slipping under high load.  Noticed
the oil pressure is down too, which may be related.  I have been driving
the car in "a spirited manner" lately.

Question is, are there any simple causes for this symptom like the clutch
line needs to be bled (yeah right)?  I'm assuming the problem is that the
engine is dumping dinosaur juice on the clutch, evidenced by the driblets
of oil under the hole in the transmission housing, but it never hurts to
consult the wisdom of The List.

My new (used) distributor is working very nicely, though.  I'm running
out of things to fix.  Just kidding.
