    Rite of Passage? Guess Not.

    Saw a school notice today about the twins' upcoming Senior Prom. Asked them. Daughter said, "Yeah right. Heels and gown. Like that'll happen." Son said, "Huh?"

    Guess I save some money.

    How old are your kids now Davis? I have one graduating from UCSB this June 16th so we are going home. Only took her 3 years.

    My girls loved the prom, but they did not do martial arts...

    Probably an anachronism to free thinking, enlightened kids like yours DK.

    Prom always struck me as another one of those American-things growing up like Halloween, milk in cartons, and M&Ms, Bud Weiser etc. that you'd see in movies or read about in books.

    We had school socials/balls but they weren't ever that big a deal.

    I'm showing my age though. All the aforementioned stuff ins in NZ now too and has been for a while. I was surprised to see that Halloween's quite big there now.

    I see you also deftly sidestepped the 'ginger on ginger' problem.

    ^I assume your nickname was either Blue or Biscuits (he's got Ginger Nuts) . Anyway what's that car and what's trying to get out from under the lid?. Looks like a Torana but the lights don't match?. Please tell me it's a V8.

    Yep a sorta-almost-but-not-really a Torana... A Sunbird.

    I did have a proper Torana at one point though... LJ.

    But also yep a V8 (355 Chev). And that's just a glorified air-filter sticking out but it was a tunnel ram at one point.

    If I'm remembering right the drags were on the next day so the pipes had been taken off and that muthfucka was loud!
