Informative article

I got this in my email this morning. Probably old news to most of you but I found it interesting.

Definitely a cool article. The thing that bugs me is the trend to cut up the long box and make it shorter. I like being able to haul a lot once instead of making two trips. I love my long box. Long live the long box!

Re: Informative article

I knew they went from 396 to 402 but I didn't realize the reason....

"Fun fact: all 396 engines across the Chevy lineup were actually bored 0.30 over in 1969 due to lax emissions standards for engines over 400 cubic inches.
In the Chevelle, which had built an entire brand around the 396, Chevrolet kept this hush-hush, but in the pickups, where it was known by the L47 RPO code,
it was alternately labeled 396 or 400, confusing gearheads for decades afterwards."
