I chose the following , based upon :

A.) Visual Appeal

B.) Performance

C.) Seldom Seen ( excepting the 340 )

In no particular order-of-favour :

1.) GMC 702 C.I.D. "Twin-Six"

2.) GMC 351 "Big Block" V6

3.) Buick Nailhead

4.) MoPar 340 ( I chose the 1972-1973 version strictly for its visual appeal of the orange air cleaner / blue engine )

5.) Experimental Oldsmobile 455 C.I.D. Hemi

More to follow ...

** I Don't Know WTH Happened to the image of the GMC V6 in My Above Post ?? **

Couple more :

1.) Detroit 12V-71 with twin 6V-71 Huffers (inside a 'Rod)

2.) Pontiac 250 C.I.D. OHC Sprint Six

As a side note ; it's too bad that American car manufactuers didn't allot more funding for the development of their six cylinder engines . Imagine an OHC Slant Six ; wider application of the Pontiac 230/250 OHC ; a Diesel Slant Six ; and many more .
Engines which could've saved the manufactures and the consumers A LOT of grief starting on 21.OCT.1973 :unsure:

This engine has just been started for the first time and is the worlds first running 6 rotor engine,built in New Zealand,will be in an RX4 drag car,should sound like a monster once it's run in and tuned.

King of the Hemis!!! Ray Barton style. He redesigned the valve train geometry, and they redline close to 10 grand, and are waaaaay more reliable than the stock design.

Street car


Then in no particular order of preferance ,,,,something a bit more potent.

But then again, the spark plugs in the valve covers with 8 tubes sticking thru the hood is a lovely sight to behold
