First off, it isn't a "BBC" it's a "W" motor and the dip stick is on the left side on the 348 and the right on a 409.

And that is with no googling!

no fair, i can't play until i answer a question??? what's up with that... . i have several good trivia questions that i'm sure a few could answer but most can't. OH WELL, if i answer a question i will have several good ones to ask, if i don't answer a question, you guys loose because i can't play...

now i missed my chance due to posting. i had both a 348" and 409" car in my teens. then the mystery motor was introduced in 64 for NASCAR racing. it is the big block we all know today. by 1966 that mystery motor was killing everything on the street (i know, i never got beat in my 66 SS 396 4 speed 4.11 12 bolt posi car.

anybody know when chevrolet produced the first V8 OHV engine (watch out-trick question)...

Ok, my question is pretty obscure. I'll leave it out on the table for extra points and ask another.

What is the only Corvette with solid lifters AND a/c?

i just read "solid lifters". could it be the 435 HP engine with the RARE AC option???

I don't know how far we go playing this game. Do we have to prove "iffy" questions or answers? I had to Google this to be sure I wasn't steering you guys wrong. And I found that I was wrong, I thought it was only one year and model. But there is two different models and three years that it could be found. And you don't have either one in your answer, close, but no cigar. So, how far do we go, do I still keep the "floor" until someone is dead on?

I think we have to bend a little, you hit it close enough. It is a 72 LT-1. The other, something I just learned in my google search is a 64-65 365 HP SMALL Block. I should have known that, I had a 64 365 horse. Mine didn't have air and I was under the impression that none did. But there you go, the 72 LT-1. Good job, you have the "floor".

By the way... about rules and limits and googling... I started this thread in the interest of just fun trivia. I don't care what you do with it, just keep it tidy, respectful, and fun.
