Yeah Mopar or no car what I used to think, shame they’re priced into oblivion because dumski’s that basically banned hemi’s at NASCAR just like today’s media cancel culture and made everybody hate Chrysler Plymouth cars even though they set almost almost every drag record Just because they wanted the more popular Chevys to win so they became very scarce especially after the haters owned junkyards would crushed complete cars in late70’s early 80’s instead of letting people buy them!
The hemi engine is still the best engine to run for top fuel, if the crooked NASCAR didn’t for all practicality ban the hemi cars they would’ve had a production double overhead cam hemi by now!
There are still one of the two prototypes of the dual overhead cam four valve per cylinder hemi engine out there in someone’s garage just drooling over it because only one of the two that were ordered destroyed got destroyed!
Vipers is cool but but I love the older A body cars!
