Chevy Tonawanda Stops Big Block Prod

News Story - Chevy Tonawanda Has Ended Big Block Production.


http://www.tonawanda-news.com/local/...352232506.html

The end of an Era



Amazing ( I have looked the #'s up on my car since its #'s matching )
40 years ago last Wednesday December 16th 1969 my Camaro rolled off the line from having her heart ( 396/350 L34 ) installed.
40 years and 2 days later her home was shut down.

Amazing
