    I'm not a people person, or much less an out person. But I car pooled to work this trip with a buddy. Mrs fat kid wasn't being very friendly, so he invited me to dinner at a chicken wing place. So here I sit at the bar minding my own business when my coworker tells some drunk guy he needs to see my car. Reluctantly I showed him a pic of my first gen project. This nice gentleman who had been over served proceeded to tell me there's no way my car was a 69, but it was indeed a 72 from Canada. He also told me that all 71-73 cars in Canada had a ford 305 from the factory. Moral of the story, don't drink and talk shop, and I still hate people. I just smiled and sipped my ice cold shiner and munched on chicken wings....laughing on the inside.

    There's a lot of weird things up here in Canada but those are not one of them.

    thats the difference between those that talk it... vs... those that DO it.

    of course you had to correct him.... those ones came with the 377 CID straight SIX right?
