I've been hearing more & more references to Rat motors lately... What are they and why are they called that?

Thanks,
Barb :w

Big block Chevys. The 396/427/454 is the "Rat" motor, and the small blocks (350, etc.) are the "Mouse" motors. ;)

Now you're asking too much of this old gray (pink?) matter. :L I forget if there's a rhyme or reason to it. :confused
