Hemi: How Chrysler drew a dome and forged a dynasty | Hagerty Media

Hemi is the Greek word for half. That makes a hemisphere exactly half of a perfectly round bubble. Unfortunately, the engineers who created Chrysler's 1951 FirePower V-8 didn't need that much bubble. In lieu of a full hemisphere, they capped each cylinder with a spherical shape whose height is significantly less than half its diameter.
