Big Bopper

Was Big Bopper a stick or an automatic? The opening scene with Roop and Charlie arguing the car lurches forward but the engine doesn't make a reving sound, indicating that the car is an automatic and Charlie was just letting off the brake (although I don't remember seeing the brake light flash). That is in the aussie version. In the us version the engine makes a reving sound indicating that the car is a stick and Charlie is gunning the engine with the clutch in and slowly letting it out then jamming it back in. Which do you guys think it is??

As I've noted re MMI US/Oz version, the revving US version is off

Also, is 302 cleveland an OZ term? US had only 351 clevelands(ohio, USA) or windsors(Canada)

A 302 cleveland and a 351 cleveland use the same block in Australia, to look at the two engines exsternaley, minus rocker covers from an XC falcon say, you would not know which one is a 302 or a 351 with out checking the stroke.
