20th class reunion.

Mine is this July, not that I hung out with many of my classmates, the gearheads were a small group lol. My buddy with the outlaw car will be going, prolly the only reason I'm even considering it. I bet nobody can say they still have the car they drove their senior year....

wanna bet! I still have the car I had in highschool! I am going to my 30 year reunion this summer.....

My Cougar has the same engine in it also, and it is "only" .030 over. 43 year old block, crank and rods..... pistons are 30 years old. I have a new top end on it and have "freshened it" many times. Ran a 10.78 last weekend in the heat at 3500# and 5100' of air. Last time I put rings and bearings in it was 6 years ago.

My 20th was last year. I didn't find out about it until a month after it happened. Didn't even occur to me that it had been twenty years. People took pictures and I did a little catching up with a few of them. It's always interesting to see how people age. Seems like we're at the point where some people look 30 and others look 50.
