That thing got a Hemi?

Back in 2005, the phrase in the title of this post was a popular advertising catchphrase apparently. I dimly recall some car commercials with a couple of doofus cagers in some junky nascar-wannabe car consistently losing to some truck with a Hemi engine in it.

Well, I came upon these pictures on where they apparently hosted a competition back then for the weirdest thing you could mate a Hemi engine onto.....the winner was this trike:

You can just imagine the looks on the cagers as you rode this sucker down the road! This trike must have had the turning radius of a boat! A large and noisy boat.

Here's a link to the full article, the runner-ups are shown as well. LINK

Dear Charlie6 (Dom):

Some people have more money than sense. I've been catching up on my reading tonight and left you a few messages on previous posts.

Thanks a lot.
