Weekly Fun Question for 12-03-2011
Good Day:

Attention VIP Members: A variation of this thread is also being posted on the VIP WFQ Forum for your participation. Please do not respond on this Forum or this threadSmile!

The Weekly Fun Question (WFQ) is designed as an "ENTERTAINMENT" exercise to give "General" Members the opportunity to test their knowledge on information relative to the '71 - '73 Mustangs. It is also meant to allow the same members the opportunity to have a nice #1 Icon added to their profile when they are the FIRST to provide the desired response. Additionally, if a general member "wins" on three (3) separate occasions, the member will have his/her membership (a $25.00 value) paid for a VIP subscription on the Site.

Please keep in mind that sometimes there may be contradictory information provided by different sources relative to our Mustangs. We always try to ensure the WFQs are developed from recognized sources. That having been said, if a source provides different information than what we are looking for, we will more than likely go with the original source for the purpose of declaring a "winner." That does not mean that we will not discuss the discrepancy as that could help enhance credibility and broaden the knowledge on the Site.

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 the current contest (usually at approximately 7:00 P.M. {CST}) the following Monday when the thread is transferred to the "Archives" Forum.

Only the first response from a 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 Don65Stang as a result of his having been the VIP Member to win the most recent contest. Our SINCERE Thanks, 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.

Answer 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.

Good Luck!

2. 55 amp alternator
3. 55 amp battery
4. special intake manifold

The Originator (Don65Stang) for this question was under the impression that it was quite easy but I thought it was anything butSmile!

We only had two (2) postings to the question and those responses were extremely close to each other. It was obvious from their responses that these two Members (dohebert and T-K), who have both won on one previous occasion, spent a great deal of time and effort on this exercise. Considering that, I have decided BOTH Members have not only earned the award for this week but both will receive VIP status based on their submissions.

I have made this decision due to the difficulty of the question coupled with their demonstrated willingness to "give it a try" in spite of that difficulty.

Congratulations Dohebert and Torgeir!


Do the RIGHT thing.
WOW good job guys
Congratulations to both of you! As you can see...It pays to play!

I have upgraded both members to VIP! Enjoy the new forum perks! Big Grin
