Default When The Prices Jump The Critters Appear.

Well, when I started getting emails asking how many 1967 IPC's were produced from people I did not know, (like they were requesting comment material that they could use in some way) I became suspicious and sure enough I checked media and found the video which was published just two weeks ago.

I do not know this guy and I am in no way connected to this presentation.

I would suggest however- he could stage a wild animal to jump out of the hood or interior to add to the drama ala Vegas Flip style.

For entertainment who can identify all of the factual problems presented here?

Dennis has a Youtube channel and tends to find some interesting things. I believe he owns more than a few new car dealerships and can be seen on different episodes of Gas Monkey Garage trading cars with Richard Rawlings. Does not seem like a bad guy, just a bit of a "knowologist"

Yeah. The car in the video is an incidental RPO replica, meaning it has a close appearance and trim combination (due to the RPO build selection) but the absence of the pace car data on the trim tag makes the video look kind of ridiculous.

The comment made of the L-48 being rarer than a Z/28 engine was another regrettable quote.

The cocktail shakers weren't there for weight distribution either. They were to cancel out vibration harmonics at some speeds on less than optimum road surfaces. Leave me out of whatever video you're planning Dennis. Just bring the green folding stuff.
