  1. Nothing worse than walking up to a beautiful 34 ford two door sedan ( or any Ford / Chrysler etc ) & seeing a SBC under the hood .But i am noticing that is starting to change .Not saying there is anything wrong with a SBC , either is there with a SBF or Mopar .I used to hear , the sbc is cheaper, or thats what i had. When the first sbc came along , i was there to watch its progression with the after market industry jumping all over its small size short stroke etc . The momentum increased so much some people just simply took it that was the ONLY motor to go with because of the after market throwing parts at it .The y block Ford really took a back seat, but if one looks today at the y block with mostly back yard tweaking in the beginning , there is an ever increasing after market source towards h.p.for a very stout motor that will REV & breath deeply, street motors are putting out some serious numbers .Not to mention the modern FSB numbers .There are a lot of guys that will agree with this .FORDS FOREVER , if it wasn’t for Ford there would be no hot rods ,

  2. Still waiting for the day you can buy two SBC engines shrink wrapped to a pallet at Costco. You know it’s coming.
