This is a really fascinating thread.   I never knew that late 60s sports cars used 5" 
floppies.  Amazing.  Did such cars use core memory, or did they use the brake drums for 

Next let's talks about sports teams that use 5" floppies, then we can talk about office 
jokes that may or may not use 5" floppies, and perhaps the US list members can get around 
to whether democrats or republicans are better for 5" floppies.
