Well... For the second time in a week I am sitting in the ER. Mom has been losing her strength very rapidly and has had several serious falls. Finally they are taking it seriously and running tests beyond regular blood work. I am so tired and fatigued... I jump at every little sound "Oh God was that a Fall?"
I strongly suspect its a lot of little things making for one big problem. (As I fight the urge to add "like furries." To the end of that last part just for reactions. But this is a serious issue not to make jokes of.)
Since it was a nice day... the sun was out... the leaves are turning and falling... I thought it would be a good day to go get somme pics of the Camaro since the season is winding down to be able to do any quality cruising. On the way to a spot I saw a while ago I heard someone yell. I kind of blew it off because the Camaro was still cold and to be honest... until the engine is hot the thing runs like shit. I had to focus on keeping it running. I'd let it sit and warm up but it heats up a lot more quickly when we're on the move.

I get my pics and begin to head home, the engine finally warm and happy, and I see who yelled at me. Chick-fil-a was full of Camaros. They're closed on Sundays which makes it a good meeting spot. They saw me coming and sure enough flagged me down. 
It feels good to be noticed like that. I got a few good pics to go with the trip. 
Amazing how sometimes fate says "I'm going to make you want to do this activity that requires a camera and you'll just HAPPEN to find ourself in a situation where you really want it!"

Seeing these cars I was overjoyed with the visit but I was nervous about one thing. These guys were all SERIOUS about their cars. I mean, a lot more so than I am. I'm a shade tree mechanic. These guys were all the sorts who have lots of money. If they don't have rediculous tools to do the job themselves they have the money to pay someone to do it. 
So here is why I was nervous. Anyone who knows Chevy V8s know that they're prone to starter problems if you have headers. Add to that HIGH compression and a small high RPM flywheel and a hot engine you are asking for your car to VERY sluggishly crank over for about two turns before it just goes "C-C-C-C-CLICK"
Fortunately all was well and it cranked over and fired up. Ran like a champ the rest of the way aside from I think the accel squirt is slightl too rich.
