    As long as there is multiple carburation, Mechanical Stack injection or a supercharger I love them all.
    The Hemi's are visually hard to beat and the big Olds are cool as hell but I'm still hooked on the high reving wail of a Old school Small Block Chevy.[​IMG]

    I like the 59 Olds 371,had one in a 53 super 88 2 door that would rev like a smallblock and had plenty of torque plus would get good gas mileage if I did not put my foot down too far.

    Nothing exotic or really even that old, but I like the W engines........Ford Windsors that is. Seems like I've always had a 289, 302, or 351 around in something. Current project is the 5.0 or 302 roller cam engine going into the Lincoln. Great little engines that make decent power for their size. I can forgive the water pump being held on with umpteen different sized bolts in exchange for the easy to get to front distributor. Have had at least one in the stable since I was 17, except for a few dark years in the 80's when I drove a Toyota pickup and the wife drove a small Pontiac 4 cyl, both for gas mileage reasons. Had other Fords and Chevys, but always return to the small block Windsors.

    Nothing wrong with them and the right stroke and some heads to back it.

    My other favorite engine, the Knucklehead. (I lead a double life between vintage hot rods & antique American cycles) And so that I don't break any rules I have enclosed other applications of it's use.

    LOL As it should be. :D

    On the day the music died just a thought, as hot rodders there is no reason to believe that the chevy driven to the levee has anything in it but something else, Rocket, flathead, SBF. :D

    :D Hi Pufff.I think that many years ago there were even a couple of small home built planes that were powered by Harley engines.
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.

    woodbutcher, yes there were a few private planes built back in the day using Harleys, but nothing like the amount of 4 cyl. Henderson powered airplanes built by actual companies owned by Ed Heath in the 1920's, and B.D. Maule in the 1930's. In the recent years SkyHog was building airplane kits for Harley engines, now called SkyRay Ind. Some of the small Hydro, and small sprint racing boats also used Harley engines back in the day.

    When I used to run Super Sport Chevelle's, I don't recall many (any?) 383 Mopar outrunning me. In fact my 70 SS 396 used to be a toss up with my cousin's 440 Cuda. Sometimes he'd get me, sometimes I'd get him. Giving up a lot of cubic inches, that 396 gave as good as it got.

    LOL! I no longer own any Chevelle's or big block Chevy's. Right now I'm running an old 283 in an A, and loving it! But it wouldn't run with a big block Chevelle.

    The hemi in my 34. No bling, just a good solid well built motor. Love listening to it on the start up. Porn for my ears.

    In a year or two we'll meet at MoKan and you can pilot mine. You're probably a better driver than me anyway. ;)

    The Packard V8. Back in '56, the 374" Packard was the biggest thing out there. My parents owned a Hudson Hornet with the Packard V8 and I did my first tune-up on it; been hooked ever since. The '56 Studebaker Golden Hawk with the 352" V8 was the quickest, fastest car made; it beat Corvette, Thunderbird and Chrysler 300 in magazine road tests.

    Here's a couple of many I've built.

    The Studebaker V8 is my second favorite and I've built a bunch of those. It shares with the Packard V8 the siamesed center exhaust port and for some reason gives them a unique sound.

  27. Of the engines I've had in my own driving cars, I'm partial to small block Mopars. But I really haven't had much variety honestly. Kicking around the idea of putting one in my T but they were introduced a bit late and that fact kind of bothers me.
