Looking for other Ford big blocks in the IE

Heya guys. Im just looking around for others in the SoCal area with an intrest in Ford Big Blocks. Right now im living in San Bernardino (the Inland Empire) and driving/restoring a '73 F-250 Ranger XLT and running a 460 big block. Its currently ripped appart and im doing the rebuild myself. So hey, if anybody in the area is into the bigger motors let me know, i have yet to see many older big block trucks around (most are smaller FE series it seems).

Any clubs in the area that anybody knows of my chance? Im on the younger side of things i suppose, 25 years old, but hell ive been married for the past 5 and have 2 children to show for it.

Questions? Comments? Let me know!

Re: Big Blocks

Just finished building a monster for my 75 f 250. Used high compression pistons (JE) a nice Comp Cam, motorsport roller rockers, edelbrock intake, holly carb, Jet Hot Hedman headers...

Really woke it up! Check it out in the gallery under 75 f 250 brand new!

I've got a 64 F100 with a 460. I am currently tearing it down to clean out all the cam lobe shavings. Seems a loose cam gear bolt is a bad thing.
