Got to see my brother this weekend

My brother Dave came home from Alabama. We had a mini family reunion Saturday night.
Dave is a gear head and car enthusiast and he towed up his 1971 Super Bee Charger.
Here's a few pics from the weekend.
First is (Front L to R) My brothers Dave, Joe, Sis Vicki, (Rear L to R) brother Thad and me.
The rest, of course are Dave's beautiful show room condition Super Bee Charger.

My brother isolated himself from all family members quite some time ago and I haven't seen him since. That's a great looking family you have there. I bet there were plenty of scraps when you were younger and plenty of protection for sis Vicki. It's nice when family gets together. Plenty of stories to tell I'm sure. Thanks for sharing.

I'm in the same boat too Kenbo. It kinda hurts but that's his choice I suppose.
Great looking family Ledhead, and super cool car. I just got my Driver's License when that car was new in the showroom! Never had anything that sweet though. Had to settle for a Rambler Classic instead

I've got another sister that's isolated herself thru her undesirable life choices, the rest of the family doesn't want much to do with her, and it is a shame that it comes to it. Also another brother Shawn but he couldn't make it home from Texas.

Actually Vicki is the oldest and the matriarch of the family, and I've seen her jump on someone's back to protect her brother Joe who was in a scrap. I ended up finishing up that messy business and it's the last fight that I have been in, about 15 years ago.

We went to dinner last night, Dave and his wife and 2 adult kids, my Mother, my wife and youngest daughter, boy we had some stories to tell and lots of laughter going on. Times like that are to be cherished.

I get to drive the Super Bee tonight.

Dave runs the car at the track every now and then and says the car runs low 12's and should even get into the high 11's. That thing is a beauty. 440 six pack, four speed, I think he said 4:30 gears or something of that nature. Some sort of rear end (he had a name for it - might have been a "locker" or something).
My Mother drove the car the other night and Dave said she spun the tires a couple times (because she was not familiar with the clutch)

Drove the car last night, respectfully. I accidentally spun the tires a few times as I got used to the clutch. Got a sweet 2nd gear scratch once, yeah the kid in me was coming out on that one.
Dave jumped on it a few times and man she will plant you in your seat.
At 70 mph she is running about 3600 rpm. It's got 4.30 gear ratio and the rear end is called a "spool" he said (my previous post called it a locker). He said it's got about 560 horse power.
