    Another great article, just love this site!! What a beast of a motor the hemi was, if we only had the foresight to buy four or five in the seventies when you couldn't give them away!!! On a side note, the picture at the top of the article on the right, while a great picture, is either a 413 or 426 Max Wedge but not a Hemi.

    You're absolutely right, my mistake. Thanks for the compliment, and the correction--we're working on it!

    One other minor point, the Ford 'cammer' was a 427, not a 426. Still, a nice short piece.

    Cool engine. Surely its maddest road application was being mid-mounted in the Monteverdi Hai!

    That thing was a beast, shame it never really took off. Imagine getting it sideways--not even Villeneuve could've kept it straight.

    Interesting article. I think you meant "426" in the last paragraph.

    I always get a chuckle that Alfa engines have had hemi heads since the 50's. Yup, she's got a hemi.
