I've got a friends truck cap for sale on my front lawn and I guy just pulled in with a quad-cab Ram (no Hemi) and was interested in the cap thinking it came off my truck, a short-bed same as his (which it didn't). Nope. The cap is 7' long and came off of a Ford.
Anyhow, I jokingly said to him as he was leaving "Hey, get a Hemi" to which he replied "There's a secret about the Hemi's". Curiously I asked him "What's that?" to which he replied "That Hemi is not a Hemi until you reach 47 mph".
I asked "What do you mean?" and he explained that the Hemi's in the pickup trucks are governed and are not real Hemi's until they hit 47 mph. He said the Hemi's in the cars aren't governed, but the pickup trucks are. Our truck Hemi's are not like the old real Mopar Hemi's.
I said "From zero up to 47 mph this is NOT a Hemi?" to which he again said "Nope". He said he went to buy one with a Hemi and it was explained to him by the dealer that it really wasn't a real Hemi until it hit 47 mph in the trucks, so that they are only good for highway towing. The mechanic at the local Dodge dealership told him that too.
I then told him that I belong to a Hemi Truck Club and that with more than 5,000 members, no one has ever said that before (that our truck's Hemi is not a Hemi until it reaches 47 mph) and he said believe him, that it's true.
Have we all been tricked???????
