Good News from Mopar

Illustration for article titled Good News from Mopar

With all the dismal announcements coming from Detroit today, we thought we might share a bit of good news from the Mopar universe. Not only is a all-new aluminum 426 HEMI head casting on the production horizon, but none other than Big Daddy Don Garlits himself enjoys having the occasional HEMI-dog. We're not sure what's in a HEMI-dog exactly, but we do know that Big Daddy has dogged plenty of actual hemispherical head V-8 mills over the years in his series of nitro-huffing Swamp Rat dragsters.
