Probably mine would be something to do with my last truck engine, a little 302 with a rumpity rump cam and over 200,000 miles. Smoked a bit at idle, but whatever. It took plenty of fox bodies off red lights in my '83 stepside 4x4. I used to wind the hell out of that thing till it wouldn't rev no more. It was a screamer for a truck motor. It hydrolocked a handful of times (first time out in woods I cut the ignition and swam for it when I was running out of breathing room). Quickie oil change in the woods and wheeled some more, 435 208 and axles full of water till next morning. Pulled about 6000lbs with that truck once, that was interesting getting up to speed on the highway. Pedal down, smoke out the side pipes, not accelerating quickly despite a downhill onramp. I must say the 16 gallon tank didn't get me very far with that load. Eventually I learned that 1/2 ton frames don't like being jumped 5 feet in the air. Blew a shock mount off the rear and cracked the frame halfway through on each side. Truck burned a week later.
Put that 302 in a F250 I got for cheap and ran it with a ZF5. Beat the piss out of it in that truck. Hydrolocked a few times, overheated with no coolant 'till pistons seized in bore (was rattling and pinging in neutral a few minutes before it seized, I just kept the loud pedal hammered down), ran for weeks with oil not even touching dipstick. Engine ran great when I sold it. I told the guy to at least do a cheapie rebuild but nope, last I heard he threw it straight in a boat. Yep, that 302 just wouldn't die. I woulda put it in the truck I got now but this one already had a good running 351 in it.
