What kind of a crazy person would drive an LT-1 powered German car?

I'm reminded of the Jensen Interceptor ;-)

Was in London a few years ago, went to an exhibit at the London Museum of Fine Arts, name of the 
exhibit was "Sex and the Motor Car" - couldn't pass that up.

Very little sex - I guess that's how they got people in the door - but a fairly good selection of 
cars including a Jensen Interceptor.

Anyway, the Jensen had a "spec sheet" on a stand, and it said "Chrysler V-6 engine". I read this and 
said, nope, that's wrong, and went to find the curator.

Said curator sniffily told me it was definitely a V-6 and I was simply wrong ("bloody ignorant 

I invited him to walk across the aisle with me and count the spark plugs, and to prove me wrong, he 
agreed to. After all, what could *I* know, *HE* ran the museum.

The expression on his face when he had to count past six was priceless . . .

Horsepower is like money - some is good, more is better, and "too much" is just enough - maybe - and 
I tend to doubt it.
