Living in S. Texas... where the summers are brutally hot and almost impossible to cruise a roadster in... I allowed the stories of big block heat to persuade me to go small block (347 Stroker) thinking I would save on a little heat. It didn't work out as planned... and it's the one mistake I regret. The Stroker has the power... more than enough for a 2200 pound car... but it doesn't have that same big block exhaust burble at idle.

I love my car... but if I had to do it all over again... I'd go big block. In fact... I still entertain thoughts of dropping a big block into it at some time in the future. Just my 2 cents.

Those S. Texas summers? I kept a '72 Corvette w/ A/C for cruising that time of year BUT... am giving serious thought to selling it... and will learn to adapt summer cruises in the Cobra to early morning and early evening.
