Not a car but a motor in my situation. My 73 Chevy C-10 has a 454 I snagged out of a 95 Winnebago. All I did was clean her up, eliminate the TBI by adding a Holley, intake and a pair of sweet GM Performance valve covers. A guy at a cruise-in argued with me saying the motor was a 572, "I know my big blocks" he says. He goes on to say I have no idea what I have. A friend of mine was standing close by and used every once of restraint to keep from laughing. The next Saturday the same friend brings me a decal that says, "572 Clone" for my fan shroud. We still laugh about that incident.
