If you're hankerin' for some Ford big-block based cubes under the hood of your next build you should take a look at Barry Rabotnick's Survival Motorsports [www.survivalmotorsports.com; (248) 931-0358]. Barry has been in the business for a long time and knows how to screw together the Ford FE engine. From his competitive entries in Popular Hot Rodding's Engine Masters Challenge, to more sane levels of street performance, Barry has built 'em all. When we stopped by to chat with Barry we spied an odd-looking camshaft, but it didn't take us long to notice the chain gear on the end and realize it was an SOHC cam (the SOHC sitting on the floor in the middle of the booth didn't hurt either). While Barry's popular 4.25-inch FE stroker kit is still a hot seller-that's the crank sitting next to the SOHC cam-the big news is all of the SOHC parts coming to market. While it won't be cheap, if you've ever dreamed of a 427 "Cammer" in your classic Mustang, Ford, street rod, or kit car, Barry's one of the best to help your dreams come true.
