| | Need help on motor decision.
I am new to this website, but I own a 1968 Chevelle. I just completely restored it and put a 383 stroker in it with a powerglide transmission and 3.73 gear ratio in the rearend. I just now bought a 1972 heavy chevy chevelle. there was no motor or tranny. I believe I am wanting to make it a drag racer, but yet I still want to be able to take my girl cruising. what kind of motor (small block or big block) would be a good motor for drag racing yet cruising every once in awhile. This heavy chevy weighs a bit more than my 68. I am just wanting some opinions, and some advice and help on specs.
