Default Garage Squad

I'm channel surfing during lunch the other day and i start watching this show(should've been out working on my pile) "Garage Squad".
They are putting some guy's stalled GTO project back together for him and as soon as they find out the engine is a "462" one of their mechanics starts hopping around the set and every other sentence out of his mouth is "It's a Big Block Pontiac!" LOL
A big block compared to what ? A late 70's 301?

People that really know do not throw that term around when referring to Pontiac engines.
Big Bore/Large Bore /Big Displacement mebbe?

Seriously where did they get these guys.
Then the big reveal........

"Bus Driver MOVE THAT BUS!"
Well at least they got it running and driving again for the guy.

Is Chevy guys mentality...BBC...SBC. I think Because the Pontiac bocks look the same dimensionally, if compared to SBC block, Pontiacís look like a big block.
