    Cool pics. I haven't been on a ride w/ the GBR in more than a year. Hopefully I'll be back soon. Those are a great bunch of guys. Did Eric (grim-reaper on here) get his 4-runner done yet?

    Watch for a post by Paul (CanmoreK5) around Aug/Sept, it will be obvious and we'll keep it up towards the top of the list so you cant miss it. Be sure to give him the high res versions too as they are the preferred format. :thumb:

    I'm so covered up I cant catch up and get to the truck. I did wheel it up at Jays a few weeks ago. It did surprisingly well for 28's and IFS. It actually crawls. I have a big piles of parts all over the place. Once I get this Airstream moving then some of the piles will start to move.

    First one is a back wall of my Garage knocked out to make the store room part of the main one. The second one is a 350-400hp 68 GTO 400 H.O. into my 70 Lemans. Once the car is drivable then the 4Runner can move into the shop and gets a whole bunch of cutting done.

    Gabe:

    Glad you had a good time. The GBR is a great club. I'm proud to be a member of them.

    (hijack) Good to hear from you! I haven't seen you post in a while. Then again I haven't been on here in about a year :doah: I've been crazy busy w/ work & school, but I've got some time again and actuatlly worked on the K5 last w/e. (hijack off)

    Gabe, maybe I'll get to meet you at the next meeting. Was the FJ Kerry's or someone else's? If it was Kerry's be carefull, evey piece of glass I broke in my '80 was following him! He is a great guy, though.

    It's great to see pics from the southeast again! Used to date a girl from a school in Monteagle (Sewanee). Very fun area. Thanks for posting!

    That looks like a lot of fun. My first time driving in a stream was in Az this spring. The rain was crazy - It was a lot of fun, but a little scary not knowing what, exactly, you were driving into.

    Where is Monteagle? Is it an off road park or just an area to ride? I've heard some local Jeepers talk about it but I've never been there.
