I have only defended what I have started. Notice that I am the one who began this very healthy topic.
Stepside454 has told me to mind my own business. If I did that then this would have never started. He has really not said anything bad about the topic, only about me starting this topic and how this has ran it's course. I feel it hasn't therefore my defence.

Next is power. If power is what they want then why not NHRA style(Chrysler/Dodge) hemi's? Can't beat that.

I once told some of these people who "crossbreed" that I wanted to put a Ford in a Camaro, my gosh I'm still getting death threats for that! Come on! Come on!!

For those of you who don't "crossbreed", excellent!!
I think IMAGINATION is one reason why.
Boyd and the other "BoringBuilders" have small block Chevy connections, parts, dummy parts, etc etc etc. They aren't "gearheads" in the truest sense, they really couldn't care what moves the car truth be told, they just need it to move the car. It needs to WORK.

I like those who run Ford motors in Fords, MoPars in MoPars, and Chevs in Chevs.
Picture a 1969 Camaro with a 250hp Toyota V6.
Would YOU get "all excited" Chevy guys?
Or would you pass by thinking "why bother"....?

It takes ingenuity and a different line of thinking to do something "the hard way". Block hugger headers are in half the street rods out there, terrible as they are. Why? Because it's EASY.

I ran a 440 in my Coupe for decades before swapping to a Hemi. A small block Chevy swap never once crossed my mind, why should it have?

This "Crossbreed" or "Darkside" issue has gotten out of hand. I have a Ford F1 pick-up with a 327 SBC. On one website forum I'm ignored, and on another I'm not allowed to post. Both are Ford forums. I'm called a "Darksider". I've even got hate E-mail from several subscribers, telling me I had no right, or was wrong to put a SBC in a Ford. Some of this opposition comes from guys that have Fords with Volarie front ends, Jaguar rear ends, Toyota steering boxes, Chevy Van steering columns, Cordoba seats, and the remainder is aftermarket Billit. Yet they keep screaming "Blue Oval, Blue Oval".
I'm accepted at every other forum, it wouldn't bother them in the least if I dropped a 5HP Briggs & Stratton in a Peterbuilt.

In short.....

MY truck!...MY cash!...MY labor!...MY ideas!

Ok... I believe this thread may get hot, and it isn't even close to on topic for the forum you have put it in. I am closing it. If you want to continue this beat-to-death discussion, please do it in the lounge.
