Default msn article on V-12

The 1960s were friendlier times for American motorists. The national average gas price between 1960 and 1962 was only $0.31 per gallon, and there were no EPA regulations to ruin the fun. During this time, American legacy automaker General Motors debuted its monstrous 11.5-liter V12 engine for heavy-duty trucks, and it remains a giant even by modern standards. How big? It's the largest-displacement production engine from a major automaker since WWII.

I think it's funny that MSN had that line in one of its articles. But they were right. EPA ruined much more than they ever fixed, dollar for dollar.

Another quote that got me all hot and excited was this one:

Quote:
The numbers are compelling. The Thunder V12 produces 425 horsepower (at 4,000 rpm) and 630 lb-ft of torque at 1,800 rpm, although new pistons, a roller cam, and a port and polished head could double the power output. Meanwhile, forced induction or nitrous oxide can increase the torque output to 1,200 lb-ft, and Thunder also makes custom bell housings to accommodate various gearboxes.
1200 lb-ft of torque? HOOOO WEEEE!

Some people are like slinkys. Not worth much but funny as heck when pushed down stairs.
