That is a damn neat car and what a tragedy that fire was, hopefully no one was hurt too.

I am going to be a little vague on this one afraid that the right words would be found in a quick google.

What very rare Corvette (C3) had an odd combination of a performance option and a luxury option?

Are you looking for the 82' Collector Addition with the hatchback rear window?

No, we are talking a REAL performance car not a plastic Cadillac.

I'm not talking L-88 aluminum big block stuff. There are a lot of degrees of "high horsepower". This was known as one of the high horse small blocks.

Nope, we are talking options like power windows, that sort of thing with a high performance motor, a high revving high performance motor, it didn't "match" and only a couple hundred were made. I have a friend with one.

Aggrevating Quizz

One more and I should know the answer to a Corvette question, don't know what year but is it a year when hp was way down but the Corvete was chosen to pace the Indy 500 and the engines were changed to be able to run fast enough?

You guys, this is really an interesting one to me. Ok, I have to give you another hint.

We are talking early seventies and air conditioning coupled with a high performance engine that made no sense.

Trivia thread

I may have owned one, a 1970 LT1 or a 1969 I forget the designation but a 427 ci. tri-power maybe an aluminum engine.
You guys are driving me crazy, I said I wasn't playing anymore but it is frustrating being a student of Corvette history and don't know the answer.

I'll give it to you, 1972 LT-1 is I believe the only engine ever offered by GM with solid lifters and AC, it's your floor.

Trivia quize

First off the first LT1 was in 1970 but I guess ac wasn't avaialble until 72 so I was close anyway.
I gave this question to someone and told them they could use it because I would never get it so if it has already been used let me know and the person I gave it to should disqualify himself, but you know I don't remember who it was.
Question: What was the first high performance car or it was suppossed to be, to have a factory supercharger in the modern era of automobiles since World War11?
