    The one and only sports car I ever owned was a 1974 Corvette. It was fast but sat too low for me to be comfortable in it.

    66 Chevelle with a 68 302 smallblock. I won't detail the motor but suffice to say that it was a questionable choice to drop into a street car. Muncie trans with a Strange Engineering shorten rear running 4:56 gears with L60 tires. It would toast schmoopy's barbiecar. :hhh:
