    My Mom and Dad used to be friends with a guy in Elberta that flew with the Flying Tigers and Black Sheep Squadron, He used to show me the all kinds of pictures and gave me a USMC patch.

    A couple questions for you POG hot-rodders: is this Camaro really running a Ford 9" rear end? How can you tell? Does it look that much different from a GM rear end?

    Its hard to tell from that angle. A 9" Ford rear end is extremely popular in the drag racing community. The easiest way to see a difference is the GM rear end has a cover you remove from the rear to access the gears. A 9" the whole "chunk comes out of the front.

    The orange part houses all the gears and is removable by removing the hardware and pulling it out after pulling the axles out. The axles bolt to the outer flange which is an added benefit in the event of a broken axle, the wheel stays where it should be.

    Typical GM style rear end. It has "C" clips that go inside where the yellow springs are. If you break an axle, there is nothing to keep the wheel on the car.

    Thx for the info on rear ends, CH...if'n I didn't know any better I'd think you were some kinda rear end expert:lol3

    Not that there's anything wrong with that

    But seriously--I'm a little bit less ignorant than I was before, thanks to you. I try to learn something every day. Mission accomplished.:thumb

    Hey everybody, long time no ride.

    My F800S is for sale at the Pensacola BMW shop if anyone is interested. If/when it sells, I'm looking for a used Wee Strom or something similar.

    If you hear of anything, please let me know.
