Friday was 4/26, and on this day of 4/29, we are reminded of the big-block engines we have loved (and sometimes lost). From the hard-working 348 Chevrolet that debuted in 1958 to the absurd package size of Ford’s SOHC 427 that was destined for the race track, there have a lot of beloved big-blocks. We want to hear which gets your heart rumbling.

The big-block is a larger overall package than the more common small-block. In a world where bigger often equates to better in the minds of (particularly muscle car) enthusiasts, big-blocks don’t mess around. Still, even relatively diminutive 305-cubic-inch V-6 Chevrolet bolted under the hood of trucks starting in 1960 could qualify.
So let tell us in the comments below just which big-block is the perfect combination for you, and if you have loyalty to a specific brand, let the Hagerty Forums know why.
