    i think those numbers are close, but my memory aint too great....

    I watched a TV show on the old camaros. They said the chevy 302 v8's were made to compete with the mustangs like knudsonm said. They were limited to 302 cubic inches. They might have been factory rated at 280 hp, but they really had like 424-450 hp from factory. They also didn't redline till like 7500 rpm or so.

    In 1095, Pope Urban II commanded the beginning of the most heinous period ever documented: The Crusades. While killing over 100,000 Turks in 1098, the Christians "did no other harm to the women found in [the enemy's] tents - save that they ran their lances through their bellies," according to Christian chronicler Fulcher of Chartres.

    probably not, back in the day the people who ran those companies were gearheads themselves.....now it seems like its just a bunch of people trying to make a profit, but I'm sure there is some rare bastard cars running around somewhere......just look at GM's toybox.....
