1967 GTX Hemi

This is a toy of my father's that he has been working on for a while.  We decided to take it out for a spin.  I never really had a great appreciation for these old muscle cars until we got a couple of them to work on.  I can now see how they can cast a spell over a "mannish" heart.  This thing sounds sweet and runs with the power not fond in most cars now-a-days.  The other car he has is a Dodge Charger 440 six pack.  The numbers don't match like they do on this one but hopefully I can make a video of it so you can dig it's beauty as well.

Tiger Cubs - Trip to a Firestation

I have to say, after visiting the Firestation in Hoover, that the Firestation Russell went to was a LOT bigger, more modern, and (most importantly) had 2 working Firemen Poles. It was a gorgeous day and as you will see the boys got to experience a lot of neat things during their visit.
