As I grow old gracefully (I like to think anyway) I am buying things I could not afford as a younger man. I wanted one of these in High School but was uninsurable. So I schlepped to school in a 1966 Mustang wishing it was a Corvette. (and yes, I knew I was blessed with the Mustang) I am not really a Chevy Guy, but the L-82 motor is actually a pretty nice piece of work. Four bolt rods, "pink" no less, forged crank, 9.0 compression ratio...for the era a good engine.
