Ever wander what the difference was between Sting Ray and Stingray? Me niether, but the obvious difference is Sting Ray is spelled two words. They ruled the streets for only 5 years ('63-'67), where as the Stingray (one word), lived for 7 years ('69-'76). A lot of people don't know that there are actually two types of Stingrays.
Most people think of the big fendered Dirk Diggler model when they hear the word Sting Ray.
