    i'm biased to the ford 427s, they're really good powerful motors, but not too common anymore.... they all got raced to the ground and scrapped...if you can find one they're a good motor though.... but you can always get a 351 stroked out the a 427, those are supposed to be a pretty wicked motor too, the only problem with those are that they cost over $12k to build

    im just partial to ford FE i have no interest in any other ford motor, i would rather have a chevy, i cant stand 5.0's i went to fun ford weekend one day, we brought a 1967 Fairlane with a 406 tri power motor swapped in. every other car at the drag strip that day was a 5.0 fox body mustang, literally, there were a few other cars, i think there was a 69 mach 1 and a 64 fairlane with a 351 but other than that, out of some 500 cars that were there they were mostly 5.0 fox bodies, i understand why people build them, they are cheap, they go fast, and parts are cheap and plentiful. im just sick of seeing them everywhere. all the kids at my highschool love fox bodies, i also think they are great cars and have respect for them, but everyone has one, this explains my love of the FE, its just diffrent, everyone at the drag strip and carshows around here has either a small block ford or chevy. i just like to be diffrent.....i should have been born 35 years earlier haha

    Yeah................then you could be part of the crowd that whines about the popularity of the ubiquitous small block Chev!

    Not sure how this thread got so far afield, but just shows that while the names may change human nature follows true to form.

    Shawnlee28,you forgot about the LS6 in a Chevelle and the GNX Regal both of which where faster in the 1/4 mile than any Ford.
    When geared correctly the only Ford that would run with either car was an AC Cobra and I really would not call it a "Factory Car".
    The big difference was you could get the LS6 Chevelle or the GNX Regal very easily and for the AC Cobra you would have to wait a long time.
    Some of the engines you talk about are not very common.
    Are you still laughing now ?? And are you still confused ??

    While I don't necessarily disagree with your comments about those two GM car, you must not have been around in real time for the Cobra. There wasn't much of a wait at all, at least in the major markets. In fact, I remember seeing new 427 Cobras on dealer show room floors a full year after production stopped. It actually took a few years before the "mania" took hold.

    I love Chevies, but I've seen many wave bye-bye to Hemi taillights.

    Something that ran mid to high 12's right off the showroom floor on skinny bias ply tires definitely got my attention and respect.

    Small town cop in an adjoining town to ours had a Dodge with a big Hurst 4 speed shifter poking out of the floor. The Sheriffs in some of those small towns were able to convince the city fathers they needed high performance pursuit cars. He would never tell us what was under the hood, but we sort of knew it was a 426 max-wedge.

    One night I am racing another GTO in my tripower '66, and as we leave the line on the 4 lane we see this cop in his Dodge coming the other way. He hits the lights and I take off. I am running flat out, not one more mph left in the Goat, and the speedo is pegged below the 120 mark, so I am doing about 130. My buddy in the passenger seat tells me I better get moving because the cop is gaining on me. All I could do was watch his headlights getting closer to me as I was trying to escape. Finally, I saw a two lane road turn off of the 4 lane and flipped onto it. I finally was able to get away, but only because the GTO cornered better that that big Dodge. If I had stayed on the 4 lane he would have gotten up to me for sure. I still have a whole lot of respect for Mopars.

    I remember one night in '65 at Carlsbad, Jack Christman brought out the first Comet Cyclone that I had seen. He made a believer out of a lot of folks that night.

    mopars are great cars... cept for the fact that chryslers engineers designed the bodies poorly and because of it, most of them are rusted into the ground now
