Toy Chevy's (was: Apple IIe for $700)

Actually, the fiberglass body of the older Vettes is probably as heavy
or heavier then a comparable steel body. Fiberglass was chosen for its
ability to be formed into more attractive shapes. A concept Ford has
had a hard time grasping.

Meanwhile I'll pit my Chevy against your Fraud (probably a Rustang,
right?) any day of the week and twice on Sundays! :)

Hey, isn't a Corvette a Chevy that isn't strong enough to move around
with a steel body? I heard they had to use fiberglass to make it
capable of reasonable performance for a Chevy. Aye, P.T. Barnum would
have loved the concept... pay a lot of money and don't get a real
automobile (although, as we all know, real automobiles are no longer
manufactured, but plenty of suckers still pay a fortune to buy the
modern pseudo-automotive rubbish). I realize the superiority of Fords
to Chevy's, so, go ahead, call me a Heathen as well... and I'll accept
it as a fine compliment. :-)
