On Friday, Graverobber tied me up and locked me in a freezer so that he could take over Name That Part for his own nefarious purposes. Luckily, he provided me with plenty of Dilly Bars from Dairy Queen, so I didn’t mind too much. I am a little offended that not one of you came looking for me. Haven’t I yet taught you never to trust Graverobber?
Regardless, he threw out the challenge to all of you in my place, and it was engineerd who stepped up to the challenge. Well, kind of. At least, Graverobber tells me he came closest, guessing the part was a differential to a Corvette. I’m told it was actually the LSD to a C6. That seems like the same damn thing to me, but I’m assuming the LSD is required for the joke to make sense, since that’s the tie in to “high school math”. Graverobber, having been in high school in the early 1960s, probably spent the whole time spaced out on LSD, and as such never learned a thing in math classes, and ended up with his current job as a professional crayon artist. Or, that’s my assumption.
On to today’s Name That Part!
Your challenge today, should you choose to accept it, is to not only identify the part, the car, the model, the trim level, and the colour of the interior upholstery, but to explain how the title ties in to it all.
Okay, let’s face it, it’s a pretty easy part, and a pretty easy tie-in, but it will nicely separate the old car guys from the new car guys. And as we all know, the central point of any good blog is separating the commenters into neatly-controlled groups. Any old-car guys who figure it out will receive a shiny golden maple leaf.
