topwrench I have a big block cam in my 496!
I know some of the Sheriff Deputies around here n I looked at one of the motors this morning at a convenience store.
Very large radiator,with huge trans cooler in front,alternator the size of a breadbox,i was talking to the deputy n he said he didnt know the horsepower but the car would go so fast ti scared him.
I dont know if its like this in the city but here they still chase a lot.
I know you cant outrun a radio but there isnt that many deputies on duty out in the sticks so they still have to give chase a lot.

I recently had someone tell me that the FBI can track you buy using your tire monitoring system. I am to the point now where I just say "really" and walk away.

stich626 most time the one you'd call "that guy" isn't as dumb as you think, sometimes it's the terminology they use. that may not be the "correct" wording..
now tell me what c.i.d. your motor is

Stude, Cobalt was as kind as can be in pointing that cam info out. Stich and I "Dissed" you if any one did. Don't be beating up on Cobalt. My argument on this whole thread is people are people so why should it be you and I should get along so awfully.....whew, sorry Depeche Mode just popped into my head.

Honestly, these terms "Intercepter", "Rocket", "3/4 cam", and "Big block cam" can get so watered down thru the use they loose all their "meat". Over the years more and more people say it without a full understanding of it's meaning and next thing you know it's an empty term. They aren't dumb, the meaning has changed that's all.

On the big block cam, I sure as hell didn't know what Cobalt taught me, didn't have a clue! That guy who said it could very possibly heard this and was just talking to be a part of the conversation. He miss used it, or he didn't, that block could VERY WELL have been exactly that, a small block with big block cam journals, we have NO IDEA if it was or wasn't. That could be the only thing right that dude said all day while he called a 39 Standard a 38 and a Flathead a Hemi and a 48 Chevy pickup a 51 because it looks just like his uncles 51. Who knows, and who does it really effect, no one.

Boy I sure sounded stupid those first few baseball games I went to when I was trying to talk like I knew what the heck was going on. I will live in shame for ever because someone is talking right now on a baseball forum about the moron sitting next to them at a game years ago.........

boothboy I use to have a 53' Savant. It didn't go very fast, got lousy gas mileage, but the retractable fenders made it worthwhile!

Son, your beef ain't w/me. I said as clearly as I could that I wasn't dissing you.

If you want to piss and moan, at least do it to someone who WAS disrespectful to you.

And I'm wondering how the hell you know so much about this guy's intelligence. You must be a savant.

I think I heard somewhere that taking the battery out of your cell phone keeps anyone from GPS'ing you or otherwise pinging your location.

If you have an active On Star, etc., and that was known by LE, AND you had done something bad enough to warrant it , they prolly could track or locate you. But that ain't gonna happen for a speeding ticket.

MARTINSR I just don't do anything illegal, done deal. I can use all those things, I could care less if they want to know when I go to buy my groceries or a bike ride.

BTW, this was not a dig at Studebaker. I offered the suggestion about the SBC block w/the BBC cam tunnel because it's not that widely known to guys who don't use aftermarket blocks and I can see how there'd be some confusion unless the guy explained himself.

Another option is the guy WAS full of BS, not exactly unheard of...
But that is the thing, it's hard, if he is a friend and he says something, discuss it, let him know he may be wrong (or you may be after the discussion) but someone on the street, someone at a show telling his son what kind of car that is, there is no reason to tell him he's wrong and there is no reason to think any less of him, it really isn't that big of a deal.
