IF you were splitting hairs..


GM F platform. The only two vehicles to have been built using the F-Body platform are the Chevrolet Camaro and the Pontiac Firebird. The fourth character in the Vehicle Identification Number for an F-body car is "F", on Fourth Generation vehicles. Earlier Camaros and Firebirds had differing VIN codes, but are now commonly referred to as F-bodies.

Novas are X-bodies.

I just keep rocking gently, fetal in a corner, repeating to myself: This is only a test. Whew.

Speaking of the Pontiac side of the clan, I do like them, but they are, as planned, a more luxury edition than a Camaro. The one I like best, of course, is the '69 Trans Am. A car I could never afford to buy, but this car is pretty darn nice...

You never know, they may grow on me over time as I find lots of cars now that I thought were ugly before are looking better....guess that's what happens when one gets old.

I done gave all the credit for snafuage to pharmaceuticals. Same thing was happening to me last couple days in real life too, and it was a mind boggling eye opener. Like I switched to Spanish or something. Everybody just stop trying please. I don't understand and can't even manage to shake the subject. My head still hurts. Only a test. Ooonly a test. I need to sit deep in a forest and just be for a spell.
