    So is this the first time on the forums..? Because the rest of us have known that knowledge for a good 20 years now and graduated to becoming long-standing community members, here and in many other communities.

    Thanks for your adventures if pseudo-psychology... of "online" peer pressure. I always thought that was called debate...

    For me it was about 18 years ago when I started posting on forums. At that time it was mainly teenagers using them. I spent my entire vacation (I was in vacation at the time). I watched as through the day we went through different time zones with different kids coming in. We had all kinds of discussions and they loved me for who I was, but I had issues with the way they were being educated.


    So I decided that rather being a misanthrope I would try to make their world a better place for them.


    The best was checking up on them years later and seeing them mouth the same ideals I taught them in the past - Be still my beating heart!



    Some are with my organization even today. So yes, that corny statement rings true to me in that way. The internet changed my life even through I swore the computer was evil and tossed all my punch cards down a sewer under old man Ryerson’s statute at Ryerson University and never went to another class. That was the only course I ever failed. It was my father’s course but he left before I went to Ryerson. But it was funny that it was his course... It took me like 20 years to come back.

    And a debate you are loosing.
    You are still dreaming.

    Your points don't make any sense, they are not based in reality. No, a Big Block would not be hugely popular less so than the GT350. And no people would not want the Big Block "just because"... because that is not a reason, it is YOUR reason.

    The simple 2-year existence of the 7.0 camaro z28 proves everything you said to be wrong.

    Eh, the Z/28 wasn't exactly just a large displacement (still small block though..) 'option' on the Camaro. It was an (overpriced) extremely track oriented option developed at the end of the life cycle of the 5th gen platform. No matter how popular it was it wouldn't have lasted more than 2 years as the 6th gen was slated to come out. Also, the Z/28 used the LS7 as it was available from the Corvette at the time.

    I mean next in this thread lets compare the Ford V10 used in SuperDutys to the Dodge Viper V10..........

    I mean that would make about as much sense as the rest of the discussion here LOLOLOL

    How worried should someone be about the weight of an item they can pick up and toss into the trunk by themselves, when this item gives them around a quarter of a thousand horsepower or more to play with?

    I am fully aware of the what/why/how regarding the 7.0 camaro. But it still didn’t do all the bad things to the 6.2 that fatguy says the 7.3 would do to the 5.0, which was my point.

    Trust me, I'm not advocating for fatguy here, but the Z/28 was essentially a completely different car and not just an engine option. At MSRP is was a 30k+ price adder so of course it didn't affect SS sales. Now, if there was an option to drop a LS7 in a standard SS at the time for 5-7k you would probably have seen some impact.
