The problem is that a lot of people don't use the SBC for the love of the engine. They use it because everyone else is using it, or they're just too lazy to spend the little extra time it takes to install something different. Most people are followers anyway.... It's human nature. Oh yea, please don't post in all caps. It's the same thing as yelling.

Why the hell would I put something else in my street rod? Because everyone else likes them too?
I like Chevy trucks too. I buy them and put hemis in them. As for you're love of the SBC that's fine. You say you read my essay but it's obvious that you didn't understand it. As I mentioned above the majority of people put the SBC in their streetrod because because it's easy. They're followers not leaders. That's not to say that a lot of people do it because they like the SBC, but a great number do it because they're just plain lazy.
