"If it was not for Gene answering all the technical questions on their website, it would be useless to most everyone, except for the small group of crony characters that like to banter with each other on the site about everything except classic vehicles."

To me that individual is part of the VCCA problem. He speaks with great authority and because of that gullible people think he knows everything. In reality, the body of knowledge in any field, even antique Chevrolets, is so large that no one person can know everything. What he has is a lot of parts books in which he can look up part numbers. That is like a telephone information operator looking up phone numbers. The real value that any "Expert" has on any forum is helping people figure out how to do challenging projects. That requires creative, outside the box thinking, not huge lists of part numbers and casting numbers.

I agree Ray.

Although somewhat knowledgeable about cars....
He provided incorrect technical information on a regular basis in the truck section of the site.

He became quite indignant every time anyone dared to correct him and he would get frustrated if you provided pictures & copies of GM literature that proved him to be wrong.
His usual response was to downplay his mistake & always had to have the last word {even if he was wrong}.
It became quite easy to run circles around him when he was wrong but, it was easier to make just one single post correcting him, rather than arguing back & forth with him for days.

The sad part is...people go to their site for technical information & the "big shot" of the site that hands out the most information is frequently incorrect with his answers, and everyone accepts his incorrect answers as gospel.
