speaking of ignorant motor swap (got this from a lowering C5 post), some retard on yahoo chat, has "supposedly" dropped a 502 or 454 (he changes his mind) into a C5. Funny thing is, he's also stated he's done 215 in his car, and the speedo was pegged,while the HUD had 200 on there.....but as i've been told, he once you hit 200 it flashes "00". Some of you should really come in and check it out, it's really hilarious to watch this kid make a fool of himself. That, and if anyone goes and "looks" around @ some car sites, www.cars-for-sale.com has some pretty weird stuff.....like people selling semi #'s matchin 67 L-88's for 300k ( better be solid gold plated, 0 miles and still on the orig dealer floor) or others selling 63-67, and 68 Stingrays. (does anyone else feel like either laughin or cryin when people call a Mid Year a Stingray?)

Actually, when I bought my '65 Roadster in 1965, it was called a "Sting Ray". In 1969 they renamed that year's model "Stingray". The name had shrunk from two words to one. No one that I can remember refered to a Sting Ray as a mid-year until many years later.
