427 WOW. Did you have the oil filled canisters that fit under the hood by the rad support on each side? I think they were weight for cornering? Some old technology I never really figured out. Not sure if they were only on the rag-tops.

Hi, long time lurker here. I had a friend that attended GMI around your era. Visited him a few times and he came to visit me at MSU because that's where the girls were. I always was jealous of the cool cars you guys were able to drive, thanks to your work/study schedule. I was sporting a '66 Bug at the time. Does the name Jim Formica ring a bell? He was engineering and worked at GM, then eventually retired from Saturn.

PS. I've now got a '68 Vette, L88 tribute car.
