FIVE LEGENDARY GM ENGINES - 1

Remember when they wrote songs about cars and even engines?). A GM display in a hallway (the SEMA SHOW is so big they have cars, trucks, and all their bits and pieces shoved anywhere they can find room in the Las Vegas and Sands Convention Centers) featured "Five Legendary GM Engines" on diudsplay, "under glass", if you will. Seemed a lot of the younger convention-goers didn't recognize the engines for what they were, because none of them had any smog equipment --- They could actually see the engines! Two of the five were: 1964 Pontiac GTO 389 with 348 horsepower (as the song said, "Three deuces and a four speed and a 389), the 1964 Chevrolet Big Block 409 L80 with 425 horses (as the song said, "Giddy yap, giddy yap, giddy yap 409!"
