VIP Weekly Fun Question for 12-03-2011
SUPERSTARS!

The VIP Weekly Fun Question (WFQ) is designed to parallel the WFQ for "General" Members. Its primary focus is to or enhance knowledge on information relative to the '71 - '73 Mustangs. This exercise will allow VIP Members the opportunity to earn an additional Icon on their profile, "bragging rights" for having won the exercise and the option to develop the next week's WFQ if they desire.

Please note that when you respond to this thread, you will not see your "answer" as the thread is designed to show the responses at the end of this exercise on Monday, December 5, 2011. This will probably be around 7:00 PM (CST) when the thread is transferred to the "Archives" Forum.

Only the first response from a VIP Member to a specific question will be entertained as being correct. Edited responses will not count, so please make sure you are satisfied with your response before you post. Also, please keep in mind that in order for responses to "count" they must be posted up to this thread. PMs to me will not do itSmile.

Even though there may have been a number of replies to the question, those replies may not necessarily be correct. It is to your benefit to submit a response even if it is a "Guess."


[/b][size=medium] The problem for today's contest was developed by our very own "Don65Stang" as a result of his having been the VIP Member to win the most recent contest. You did GOOD, Don!

The Problem:
The 1972 351 CID 4V 8-cylinder option included a number of differences to the vehicle and/or engine over the base 302 CID 2V 8-cylinder engine. The member who can list the highest number of those differences wins today's contest. If there is a tie the tie breaker will be the member who answered first.

The response should be in the following format and should list as many of the differences as possible since the member with the most correct differences will win.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
10.
Etc.

Good Luck!

Unlike the situation with the General Membership, we have a CLEAR Winner from the VIP Forum - - 72 R Code!

As a result, 72 R Code has earned "bragging rights" for this week's question and has the option of developing the question for next week WFQ.

Congratulations, 72RCode!!

Thanks. I seem to be on a roll lately. Posting them later in the day has helped me. I will try to come up with something not too challenging, but fun.

Geez, how could I forget about the dual exhaust? My car was a 302 originally and the first mod I did was to throw out the single exhaust and go dual. Must have been too long ago, I guess. Dodgy

Anyway! Way to go, 72 R Code!!!
