No one builds big blocks any more for factory cars. Technology lets small blocks make more power more efficiently. The only real reason for a big block these days is either nostalgia like was mentioned, or you just need a huge motor for a boat/drag car.
If you have access to one, you can make easy power with them. But the next guy with a similarly built small block will beat your ***. We live in an era where production small blocks are producing over 1,000hp in some cases, and these days over 400 is common from factory engines.

Untested 331, lots of suspension, chewing up corners.
The saying used to be, 'the cure for a small block is a big block', which is still true for a few applications.
Now the it would be something like, 'the cure for a small block is a big inch small block'.
