Quick drive around the block with an old friend from high school for our 30yr. class reunion.

My 30 year high school class reunion was 9 years ago, I wanted to go but I went to 1 High School for 9th grade, 1/2 a year in another High School before being forceably relocated from south florida to central florida where I went through the last half 10th grade before dropping out of school and moved away from an abusive drunk of a dad. So their just too many High School reunions for me to attend.

Had alot good times in "HIGH" School and I see people from the last one I attended all the time. Even had a co-worker ask me one day if I remembered some girls name, sounds like someone I might of dated a couple of times back in High School, he said yup you're right, she's my wife. ;)

Hope you have fun and it's always good when you still have friends from HS that you still want to hangout with.

Unfortunately, he lives in Florida and I'm in Oklahoma, so don't get together very often.

Old rear end was trashed. New 10 bolt with Moser axles and Eaton Truetrac posi, 3.73 vs. the old 4.10's, coil overs and disc brakes. With the 5-speed overdrive should turn about 2000rpm at 70mph. Thank you Brian Trick!

Got the new rear installed. Just the little bit of drop I got from the new coilovers really made a difference in the stance. Looks right now I think.

A few more tweaks and she's ready for the streets. I got a little burned out on working on her, and the summer heat kept me out of the garage. Went to a car show yesterday and my fire is renewed.
