Nice little article about Hemi Mopars.

1968 Charger R/T 426 4sp in B5 blue, hands down. Like the one I had same combination except black top & interior. DM

Favorite hemi-powered cars?  The Cunningham cars of the early '50s that carried America's honor at LeMans.

Boy howdy!  I so remember the Gene Snow Super Stock running the paint off its rivals!  Yes, it did shake the ground!! Awesome!
