Ladies and Gentlemen, the all-new 1962 Corvette

A lot of people (mostly male-type people) spend a lot of time involved in the details of cars and their engines. Everything I know about cars I learned from the Beach Boys and Bruce Springsteen. I know that Bruce has a '69 Chevy with a 396, Fuelie heads and Hurst on the floor, but I couldn't begin to tell you what any of that means. Oh well, at least it's purty to look at.

396: 396 cubic inch displacement. aka Big Block or Rat Block in Chevy speak.

Fuely Heads: Cylinder heads off a fuel injected motor of same manufacture. Higher combustion and better porting. Perhaps removed from a Fuel Injected Corvette.

Hurst: George Hurst manufacture of aftermarket transmission parts such as shift linkage assemblies. At the time far superior to factory parts.
