Guess since I got a mention and quoted it is easier for me to just be happy about the whole thing, except for another American manufacturing plant closing...
"Bob Entwistle, an electrical engineer in New Jersey, said he owned a 1970 Mercury Cougar with a 351 Cleveland when he was in high school in the late 1970s.
"Everybody else ran Chevys because they were so accessible. And I would race them and make them sad," Entwistle said.
He loved the engine so much that he's putting one in a 1969 Cougar that he's restoring, even though that car originally came with a much different engine."
So not only is the engine a true "talisman" (it is that same block from when I was 17) but I/it got an honorable mention. I'm thrilled.
P.S. I too would have liked to see George utilized as a resource, but I got the message at work overnight on Wednesday, spoke to Robert midday Thursday (and referred him to George), but the article (and plant closing) was/is today. Deadlines, 'ya know. Perhaps if Robert had started earlier...
