Music and theater.
I play bari sax and tuba in every musical venue my school has to offer, and outside sometimes too. I designed and ran lighting for a play in the fall and acted in one this month. It can get tiring being at school from 7 am until 7:30 pm sometimes, but its worth it.

Speaking of sax....we just went and saw Kenny G at a local theater. I would like to include that in my list as, but not in being in theater but going and watching it.

We went and saw CATS in September and we saw Cirque De Sole earlier in the year and will hopefully be seeing a similar performance in March.

Restoring this car:




Of course, it's driveable...providing you can resist all the wobbling the car make due to the rims all screwed up...

I sure love driving it!


So far, I've done an engine swap, since the original engine was busted...so now, I have the LB8 2.8L engine, comparing to the LC1 that came with it. Horsepower wise? Instead of 103HP, I have 137HP...but it's for now. I plan to shove in either an L98 350, or find a stroked 350 (GM 383 stroker).

$900 was the cost, $1300 for the engine swap and extra parts needed. I still have a long way to go...but I believe it's better to restore a car to your own taste, rather than having it already restored...and it makes it an extra challenge.

LOL I thought I was the only one. I've put Yate loons at 24 volts before just to see what happens.

Damn, I miss my '83 Camaro with CFI... It was such a shame when it caught fire.

The fuel pump shorted or something and was stuck on while the car was parked with the engine off. Gas got pumped up into the throttle bodies and eventually started dripping onto the really hot exhaust manifold. I had been working on that car for months. New starter, alternator, radiator, hoses, various engine sensors, all the filters, a ridiculous amount of body work. I just got it painted about a month or two prior to the fire show, which occurred on July 4th ironically...
