The final form

The final form.

Is That a Hemi?

No it's not. For all the work that went into constructing it, you would think Chrysler would have made a more accurate model. Half-round valve covers and spark plugs wired to each other?

Check the wiring diagram!

I don't think those plugs will fire that way.

The fastest show

Upon completion, it would boast a front lighted panel saying : "GIANT ENGINE - 1,000,000HP - The fastest show at the fair"

Not a hemi

But man it has 254000 cubic inches
