Watch Don Garlits fire up a Hemi-powered air raid siren
In 1997, British actor Robbie Coltrane hosted a documentary show on Channel 4 called Coltrane's Planes and Automobiles. One episode of the six-part documentary was focused on the V-8 engine. Naturally, Coltrane visits America for that segment. He pulls timber through a forest in a Chevy pickup, gets a driving lesson in a stock car, and meets Don Garlits at his drag racing museum in Ocala, Florida. Coltrane notes that part of the appeal of the V-8 is its signature sound, but the V-8 Hemi that "Big Daddy" Don Garlits fired up for the show is known for another sound entirely.
