LMC Super Cuda 200 MPH!
log onto www.legendarymotorcar.com to see photos of the build!
Lady Luck was on our side last week as the Legendary Team made its way to
the Chrysler Proving Grounds in Chelsea, Michigan.
An all night drive through a snow storm saw us pull into the proving
grounds parking lot at the crack of dawn. It was cold and overcast but no
sign of rain or snow. It looked like the weather would cooperate, the next
hurdle was having MOPAR engineers check out the Cuda. The car passed with
flying colors, testament to the sweat and dedication put in by everyone at
Legendary over the last year.
Then it was off to the black lake for some real world handling tests in
preparation for the 4.75 mile oval and a crack a breaking the 200 mph mark.
Both the Cuda and the Enzo look impressive on the track but once the sun
began to come out late that morning the setting was perfect for our high
speed run. I think we captured some spectacular footage of a once in a life
After a brief mishap, when the Cuda lost its windshield trim at 190 mph,
Peter was ready to go. We could hear the Cuda coming long before we could
see her, as the cars went by they sounded like jet fighters. Top speed 208
mph with still some leftwe did it!

Junkyard 'Cuda Rescue, With Nitrous Oxide! - Roadkill Episode 11
On this episode of Roadkill, David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of HOT ROD
magazine fly out of town, buy a car from a junkyard, make it run and drive,
do burnouts, add Nitrous, drag race
twice, almost die, and the auction off the car at the end. The scene begins
at CTC Auto Ranch in Denton, Texas, where the guys score a '67 Plymouth
Barracuda with a 360 V8, but without a carburetor, interior, glass, or
brakes. By the time they sort out a number of other mechanical woes,
they're off for some burnouts and some racing at North Star Dragway, right
next to the Auto Ranch. Then it's a 300-mile drive to Houston for the NMCA
Lone Star Nationals race. But, as you've come to expect from these guys,
that doesn't exactly go smoothly. But then they add NOS Nitrous and it makes everything ok as they hang
out with Jeff Lutz and Tim Reed from HOT ROD Drag Week right before they
have to sell the car and hit the plane home.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the new Motor Trend channel.

www.e-motorclassics.com Hemi Engine History
A Chrysler Hemi engine is one of three different internal combustion engine
families from the Chrysler Corporation that are Hemi engines; in other
words, they utilize a hemispherical combustion chamber. A hemispherical
cylinder head allows the valves to be inline rather than side-by-side,
which gives a straighter, simpler airflow path, allows large valves, and
gives greater efficiency. The hemi design places the sparkplug in the
center, giving more even ignition.
The advantages of the hemi cylinder head come at the disadvantage of
requiring intake and Exhaust valve
stems that point in different directions, requiring much more complicated
rocker arm setups in overhead valve engines. These also increase the space
taken up by the cylinder head; Hemi engines are not space-efficient.
The hemispherical head designed engines were the first engines in 1964 to
officially use the "Hemi" name, a word Chrysler trademarked. All
Chrysler Hemi engines of the 1960s displaced 426 in³ (7.0 L). Although
just 11,000 Hemi engines were produced for consumer sale, the engine became
legendary, with "Hemi" becoming one of the most familiar
automobile-related words in the United States. The 426 Hemi was nicknamed
the "elephant engine" at the time, a reference to its
far-from-compact dimensions and extraordinary power.
