I guess so, but ironically, my favorite street car was my 1972 Ventura with a 10:1 vortec headed 355 with the XE268H cam and a stock stall. It was really snappy, not the fastest of the cars, if fact probably the slowest, but it was a blast stoplight to stoplight it also had a 700R4 and a 3.90 gear with a posi so that helped the quickness. Unfortunately, I pulled out in front of a car going 60 and totaled it; my fault. By the way, have you had your truck to the track?

46 Chevyfleetline, the answer to your question is use a carpet/utility knife and cut out the oil spot then cover with a throw rug. She'll never see it.
