Where will the BBF be in 20 years?

Post  460bronco on February 28th 2015, 11:06 am

It really is amazing what has been done with this power plant over the past 50! Or so years!!!  Where do you think the BBF will be in 20 more years?  Will there be some exotic new fuel that takes it to the next level?  Will there be a completely new design cylinder head?  Let your mind wander!  Have some fun!

I think that answer will depend entirely upon the aftermarket and what evolving parts will be provided to advance this engine platform further.

I'm thinking it will be like the flat head, a curiosity with a small core following. Then just fade off into history like many engine families before it. When those who love them pass on.

In 20 years people might may hardly remember what gasoline is? I know We all heard that 20 years ago too. I think a big reason they have popularity now is because of the cheap stroker kits, and the price of aluminum heads have come down. Also the FoxBody swaps don't hurt either. When all the cheap blocks and cores are gone it will likely fade away. If the 429 CJ/SCJ would have come out in 1965 or 66, and then a 460 or 500CJ in 1970, durning the Muscle Car era, to match the BBC Chevy, it would have been better for the Lima family. The way things are going now, I think we won't be to concerned about 460's by then, if it is still legal to discuss the evil old days of personal recreation that involved safety hazards and pollution. Evil or Very Mad

They all were banned because they were to powerful and used to much gas for the proletariat, before the American Flag was changed to rainbow colors in 2025. Twisted Evil

I agree 100%. Newer tech is outdating it fast.

Unless we find some mystery fuel that appears out of nothing, we'll be using gas for many many years to come.

If BBF's stick around I think it would be like the FE's are now. Then again we don't have a legendary Cobra kit car market. The 1970 Torino and 1971 Mustang 429SCJ's are the 460's claim to fame for the most part. If Ford did not make 460's from 1968 to 1997 I doubt we would even be talking about them just like the MEL series. When the older guy's die off I don't see much of any of this stuff being around, and a major crash in muscle car prices's also. Fords new Flat Plane V8 may be a game changer also, and make all these pushrod V8's look like Flat Heads.
