    What do you say to them guys that tell you you screwed up your car by putting a small block chevy in a ford? I want to say F&@K off, because I'm a man of few words but it sounds a tad impolite.

    nope, not impolite... exactly the appropriate thing to say. Or, just say " Oh, I'm sorry... I thought this was MY car!"

    Tell them that they are correct, you'll never do it again, and ask them if they know of a guy selling a complete 4" crank merc engine for your coupe.
     
  7. Tell them, "Sorry I forgot I was building it with my money to suit YOU." Really, you shouldn't care if anybody but you thinks it's boss. Enjoy INDEPENDENCE Day!:)

    just tell them is a super rare sbf with a dist. relocater kit , you know , 70's nascar stuff , not to many of them around anymore . Either that or just stare blankly at them and say " i better check into getting my money back because the guy at autozone swore this was a ford ! "

    I would do like the VP did the other day and say "you don't have to be a smartass"
     
  14. Unless I really care about their opinion (and there are few of those), I couldn't give a shit. Anytime you let people drag you down to their level, then they have won. Keep it on the highroad and don't let people ruin a good positive attitude!

    Negative shit . . . creates more negative shit . . .

    I had a guy say that to me once(actually several guys over the years) the responce is. When you buy parts, then I'll value your opinion. I built this thing with the parts that I had layin around and I happen to have traded for a brand new SBC in the crate still. :p I did put Ford Y-block decals on the valve covers.
     
  17. No need to say anything. It's your car, bought/built with your money. Personally, I believe a chevy v/8 in an old ford is a step up.

    Just tell them you had the PERFECT car so you figured you'd install the PERFECT engine.
    I'm sure they'll be very understanding....LoL

    That works for ANY swapped engine in ANY brand body...(not being a Chevy smart ass or anything!)

    "Yeah..I did it just for YOU.."
     
  28. Opinions are like assholes, everyone has them, and too many of them think theirs doesn't stink.
