Default 2010 triple bypass - 8/14 - 8/15

darn that was a lot of driving in a somewhat full size, stiff, and way too stock t100. imagine a light weight 80 with ifs and axle hop.

A great time, and minimal incidents. A couple of tires on 80's, and a 40 that vapor locked every 30 mins. Wait, the 40 part is normal.

Some pics here:
