The new Hemi Hunter was rolled out for the first time on Sunday, June 2nd. The show was an all Chevy car show with several local nostalgia drag cars. It was a local show and was held at the Schnecksville Fire Company on Route 309 in Schnecksville, Pennsylvania. Here are some pictures of the new boy. Boy, you let the car write a little story about himself, and now we can't shut him up. He wrote a few words about the day himself (see below). If you look closely, you'll notice that the new Hemi Hunter has a stock block and heads in it. We are still working on the Arias for the very near future. Wayne had one of the original blocks and heads hidden in his body shop. So to make the show we stuck it in the new/old boy. The HH wouldn't stop complaining about the weight, and said we had promised him an aluminum engine. Hope he's not going to be a sissy. We'll see when he finally goes down that 1/4 mile.

Regards, Gary

June 2nd, East Penn All Chevy Show. Well, I think the guys have slipped a little in the last 30 years or so. I never heard any one group of guys complain so much about tired feet and hands. I can't figure out what their problem is. I feel great, all shiny and new. The local Chevy guys invited me to their first spring outing. I was excited about rolling out of the trailer for the first time. Boy, what a thrash. From a bare frame eight weeks ago to an almost finished me. Well almost. As you can see, the finishing touches (like my injector lines) were still being installed at the show. Now if I can just keep the crew's attention long enough to get me totally ready for the drags, we'll really have some fun. Thanks to everyone for the help.

Your friend,

The Hemi Hunter
