You got it silverhawk, it's your floor.

I learned this little trivia when I picked the color of my truck from a color book back on Aug 1 1977 at the paint store (NEVER DO THAT!). I wanted Corvette orange and opened the 1977 Corvette color book and picked that color. I had the truck all masked up and opened the can and almost vomited! But I had spent all my money ($32) on that gallon of paint and I was stuck with it. Of course today at the very least I would go back to the paint store and have them shoot some red toner in there to darken it up or something.

Sorry boys, but I just lack the knowledge to come up with something challenging... So I'll keep it simple, hopefully, so the next person can ask something more interesting...

This one's a freebie boys... have at it...

Made by GM.
Love it or hate it.
Neither a 4 nor a 6
But came with a 6 or A4
Ignition was the Achilles heel
Preferred its heads cooled first
Its “placement” rekindled a war.
Its power clearly tuned the tide.
The bridge between the classic and the modern.
Supposedly advanced for its time, but still old school iron.

Lt1

Thanks, I'm in the love group with LT1's. I own two. One in a '94 Z28 and another '97 in my pickup project. The '94 distributor is trouble prone, but the revised distributor in the '97 is ok.

Ok, This popular American car had a model built in Spain that had a diesel engine. What is it, and what did they call it?

A 1934 Chrysler Airflow! Running thru all the cars in my head and all the split windshields all the way up to 50 or so I couldn't remember a thing, I had to google it. Wild!

Just out of curiosity, is "googling" frowned up on in this game, or merely a last resort tactic?
