re: Why I have grown to hate the Small Block Chevy..... an essay
My 2 cents...
I see centerline's point. I like hotrods because they're individual -- the more so the better. I drive an old car because few others do, more than that I'm building it the way I want to doing stuff that i like and others will probably think is stupid, sometimes on purpose. I'm currently planning to put a new engine in the 67 caddy -- it will proably be a big turbo diesel. It may even be a Ford or Isuzu unit, whatever will fit and give the biggest power.
I say build/buy what you want but don't be offended if it bores people because they've seen it a million times before.
