              Of course, understood. He was a good cat. I'd call him a kitty except he was an 18 pound bruiser that took no hell from anything. I'm proud to carry on his namesake.

              Good thread!

                  Cobra502. I built a 427 AC Cobra S/C and put a 502 ci Chevy in it. Now, before y'all start yelling out “Sacrilege, Sacrilege”, it is documented somewhere (I can’t find it right now) that when Carroll Shelby was developing his AC 427 S/C he built at least two test mules with Chevy 427 engines in them to get a baseline on the completion. This information came from an AC Cars mechanic from England. Carroll wanted Chevy engines in the beginning but GM said “no thanks, we have the Corvette” and so he went to Ford.

                        I've been using Mobius as a handle online since the birth of the internet (and it's been fun to watch that kid grow!).

                        August Ferdinand Möbius was a relatively famous mathematician, perhaps most noted for the simple (and yet complex) Mobius strip.

                          I am enjoying this thread. I get to see every forum name as each new member has joined us. Wonder who else will be coming out of the closet, for I still have lot of curiousity.
