Default Corvette Motor

Awhile back there was a thread about this on Yellow Bullet. It sorta made me laugh so I thought I would be a copycat and start one here to get some opinions... Why in the heck do people think this is anything special? Seems every 350 for sale is a "corvette motor"

As someone in the other thread said, there must be a massive "Corvette junkyard" somewhere. ..or millions or corvettes are missing their original engines.

My engine is a 1989 truck 350. Nothing exceptional, but it is a 4 bolt main.
