    I voted Chevy V8, but if it's a 427 "SBC" Dart block with Dart heads, I guess I should have voted "other".

    355 Chevy small block.I got a great deal on it,and I already had some parts.Plus,the bonus is they're affordable.With headers,M/T valve covers,Edelbrock manifold and Holley 4bbl. It'll look good when it's installed.

    Three hot rods and a dozen or so spare engines, all early Olds so one vote works for me.
     
  21. Y-Block of course! No real suprises in the poll.

    Been beating the crap out of every flavor of Chevrolet engine for 50 years come this fall. It may be boring but it's earned my loyalty many times over.

    Not really except i figured the chevy v8 would've been more like 50% of the vote.:D I really wish i would've broken it down further like the one guy said because i bet small block chevys would make up about 2/3rds of the chevy v8 vote.
