    Funny thing, I ran across that blogspot last night.

    The car is a real one of one 1969 factory supercharged 327 SBC Avanti II. Up until recently there was a neat YouTube video/movie taken of a road test report when the car was new. What great fun - they melted the rear tires at every opportunity (read: at every turn). Apparently whoever has the rights to the film decided they didn't want it on YouTube, so it was removed. www.youtube.com/watch?v=iPRYRTNWN9w

        with that nose high stance the car would blow over about 150 MPH [:0].

          It is amazing how many "experts" are so dumb!

                A lot of us try to respond to an earlier post without realizing that it's several years old and the poster is no longer around or the whole issue is OBE. It's helpful to note the age of a thread when bringing back an old one.

                  The date for each thread is right at the subject line for all to see.

                    Yes. But if one scans down the first page of the general forum, nearly all are current, late 2017 threads -- so it's easy to fall into the trap of ignoring the origin dates. There's nothing wrong with resurrecting zombie threads, but including a warning that it's several years old is a helpful courtesy.

                      And I think all of the original respondents are still with us. Given the age of this group you can't always make that statement.

                      On another forum I belong to those that dredge up old threads are referred to as necroposters.
