Why does this image remind me of this?

Speaking of Autozone, what the hell is with their TV ads? Would any dingleberry actually shop at Autozone for Shelby Cobra parts?

probably not, there aren't many words in Russian even similar to their English counterparts. Ugh, this car reminds why I made all my cars all black when I played this game.

I'm kind of torn here. On one hand, it is an old chevy truck. on the other, it's way, waaaay too clean to be redneck.

Based on what i've heard from 'vette owners, chevy's generally lousy performance in reliability testing in consumer reports, and as relative to say the evil Hondas, who all have OHC and excellent reliability.

While this guy does praise the pushrod 'vette, he also seems to disagree with your guys on the issue of OHC having more valve train weight.

I'm already aware of the fact that GM is cheap. And late-model corvettes are notorious for spending a lot of time in the shop, so don't try to act like you're saving cash on the repair cost. And for that matter, we're talking about a vehicle that goes for over 60K, adding an extra 6,400 to that isn't exactly a huge jump for the target demographic.

Having an engine capable of producing higher RPMs not only usually means higher horsepower, but simply having a larger area of the band where you're making useful power means you have a lot more flexiblity, and as you said, smoothness in shifting. You're also losing power (and incidentally, worse fuel economy) by only having two valves per cylinder because the gasoline doesn't burn as fully as in 4 valves per cylinder engines.

As far as engineers saving weight on reducing the thickness of the head castings, that has to do with the car company in question, not the technology itself.

And as long as you brought up torque and horsepower, I might as well just say my feelings on the matter. It doesn't matter which you have more of, it's all about the gearing.

I would like to point out that Alex Kerry, the oldest of the Kerry girls, has a precedent for showing her nipples in public.

And what exactly are the advantages of pushrods?
