I do........like a smart ***.....


It's easy rotating pics on a regular computer. You stick em in a file. You rotate them correctly and then close the pics and the file. Reopen the file and the pics stick.
This is Windows 10...mileage may vary with others.

And now for my proof read. They are not picks (which are used for digging), but rather pics (which are for viewing)

Toe out will definitely cause wandering. I like 1/16" toe in with radials. When I took a course on alignment 50 years ago I learned that for each 1/8" your toe in is off is equivalent to dragging your tires sideways 14 feet for each mile you drive.

Now, what did I have for breakfast ?

I had my antidepressant changed yesterday, but come to think of it I started getting depressed the same time as the virus hit. Didn't see the connection.

Seemed alarmingly zippy at the time but man being on the gas for the 1-2 was a sure chirp.

My 69 used to be that way. Now the pavement has to be hot. The GTP used to lite em up anytime you stomp it up until 45 or so.

Loafing to a dragstrip and laying down a handful of 15s in other cars I've had was fun #1. Fun #2 is practicing launches. For just in case of stoplight grand prixs. Fun #3 is shakedown of fresh performance mod. Cruising is behind all that.

So is it the big trucky spread between 700R first and second gear that gives them that big wallop? Thats what I figure.
That's what I figure too. Upshift is factory set at 5100 rpm. 3.73 posi rear gears help too. Stepside bed fenders are plastic or fiberglass as well. I can lightly brake it from a stop and smoke both rear tires for what seems like 100 feet or more, then I start thinking about the cost of rubber.

No cats, no EGR, dual 2-1/2 input large flowmaster muffler with 2-1/2 tailpipe out of a 3" output. Only mod is I replaced the old injection spider a couple years ago with the new style when I built a refreshed engine. About 17,000 miles on the engine now. I refer to the truck as old red. Zero rust Florida truck.

John long Made it to the muffler shop in Dayton, Tn without getting any tickets today. Jimmy is my wife's nephew and really does some nice work.

I took pictures when it went on the lift but forgot to take pictures of the finished job.





I drove it over to the shop just in case we got pulled over for the straight pipes but Steve drove it home and I got to enjoy the ride.



I had Jimmy drop the tail pipes out behind the rear wheels sort like a Chevelle would be done. You can see them peeking out in this picture.
