You got it bluegrass... it is just like saying "I have a 44mag long barrel" when all you got is a .22 short purse pistol. Trouble is, the ignorance of the Vette motor mystique is just that... mystique. Truth is, I had a pretty nasty SBC truck coded motor in a Chevelle once that would smoke a "Vette Motor".... it came out of a 70's 1/2 ton 2wd pick up. Oh well... maybe someday I will be able to have Corvette, 3/4 Cam, angle plug/double hump headed, motor with a full race quad-carb. Until then, I will keep saving my money.

Hey ya Tod
In the ORR world, all of us hardcore 60's -70's Detroit Iron builders and racers say that kiddingly, as over 1/2 of the field of 150 plus cars at most events are of the plastic variety. It takes a ton more effort, horsepower, and thought to make a big brick run as fast as a Corvette. :shock: From the factory a Vette is waaaaaay more aerodynamic ! Either way it's still racing and we all have fun !!
