Oh, The Horror!

Those of you that had the good sense to celebrate St. Patrick's Day
(the patron saint of egotistical news site regurgitators) in a bar with
the Speed Channel onscreen may have caught the Mustangs featured on
American Muscle Car.

Yes, we were treated to some nice Stangs in action, including
burnouts and such (too bad the sound was turned off) as well as engine
closeups. But what the Hell is this? A spec page (screen?) on the "1969
351 Cleveland?" Holy moly rings, Batman! And, did you know it had Boss
heads on it? AArrgghghgh!

Is nothing proofed any more? The endless mistakes in the print mags
are bad enough, but this is unforgiveable. To make matters worse, there
was an interview with Tom Shaw, noted auto writer. How could he have
his name associated with this disaster? How could he not know his hair
and beard went out of style 25 years ago?

I hope the '69 Cleve deal gets them a ton of email.

I watched it, too. I was very, very disappointed.

There were other problems, like saying 1971 was the first year speed
control was available. After the '69 Cleve mention, I paid closer
attention. It was rife with little omissions and errors. And here
these guys are, like you said, sitting there, complicit.

Me too. I hope each and every mistake brings them a deluge of people
saying, "IDIOTS!!"
