1966 Mustang Exhaust Note

This beast sat in the garage for 9 years, a fine aging process.   

I needed to make it run to ship it, and instead of just making it run, did a restoration on it.    It really don't get any better than this. 

With separate dual exhausts, header, and Super Turbo mufflers, she really sounds good.   This little video from a small camera does not do any justice to the exhaust note, but you get the idea.    At two points you can just quickly hear the secondaries kicking in.   

I used to drag race this car late in the last millennium.

Ruh Roh, now the bees are pissed.

A 6-year old boy was hospitalized Sunday morning after suffering extensive bee stings on a popular hiking trail, Pima County Sheriff's deputy Tom Peine told Tucson News Now.
Peine said the boy is stable as of Sunday evening at 5:30 p.m. He was stung more than a hundred times.

"Three of the victims were sitting on a rock... the father had the 6-year-old in his lap, trying to protect his face from the bees," said Robert Raterink, a Pima County Sheriff's Search and Rescue spokesman.

Golder Ranch Fire and Rescue spokesman Will Seeley said rescuers assisted four other victims just off the Linda Vista Trail east of Calle Concordia and Oracle Road.
The other four hikers all were stung more than 100 times, Seeley said.

Unrelated incident mountain climber attacked by bees, found dead, hanging from his ropes.
Now I can see a little vengeance against the GMO and pesticide creators....but sheesh, the bees also killed the guys dog.

A Tucson climber was found dead, hanging from a southern Arizona cliff in his climbing gear and covered with bee stings.
The Santa Cruz County Sheriff’s Office says 55-year-old Steven Johnson was found in the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson late Monday.
Cause of death hasn’t been determined yet, but officials say Johnson was covered with stings when he was found.
Johnson was last seen Friday when he went hiking, and friends became worried when he didn’t go to work on Monday.
Search and rescue teams found both Johnson and his dog dead. The dog was on the top of the cliff.
