Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.


  1. 283 with Rochester fuel injection in a 61 or 62 Corvette
    Early 30s Chevy four cylinder
    327 in a truck
    396 which was one of the 348-396-409 group of engines

    • I’ll give the answer shortly, but I should point out the 348 and 409 were one engine series, the 396 was another.

    • @Karl, you were close!

      The four-cylinder is from 1922, possibly the same that you thought, though I think it was phased out in the late-1920?

      I think the truck has a 307. The 396 was in a 1969 Chevelle, and the fuelie was in a 1961 Corvette.
