About “3-2-1 HEMI”

This was a surpised gift for my husband. I gave up my red TA for this beauty. When he came home from work, I had dealership balloons, you know the big ones that they use, all over the truck and a big red bow to top it off. He fell in love with it and then I added some goodies to it.

Specs for “3-2-1 HEMI”

Oh, I don't know. I can tell you this that while I was driving to the beach I had this old Chevy truck that was done up challenging me to race while on an interstate. Now, normally I do not pick races, but there were three young guys thinking they were all that, and I looked at my husband, and he said "go for it". Slowly I pushed the pedal down, never even hitting the floor and the next thing I know, I was walking away from the Chevy and doing 110 mph!! Being I could see a little spec in my mirror for the Chevy, I backed off and called it a day! :-)
