Cool Fake Hemi WHY, WHY, WHY???

Okay, I love the hemi just as much as the next guy, and yes, I'm only rollin' a V6. Obviously I wish it was a hemi, but the fact remains that it IS NOT A HEMI. I would never lie about it, even with my completely shaved truck. So why is it that a guy in my neighborhood specifically told me that he didn't have a hemi, all of a sudden have hemi badges??? I saw it the day it came home, and there were no hemi badges on there. I say again, Fake Hemi WHY, WHY, WHY??? Come on people, life isn't so bad without the hemi that you gotta lie about it. Geez...Okay, rant over now and I'm back to my happy go lucky self.

What's worse is anybody that races him, is going to waste him. Then they are going to start talking trash about the HEMI.
Of course it will make their next meeting with a real HEMI very embarrassing.

Very true...Talk about a false sense of security!

A little piece of plastic instantly adds 100hp (or more) and no ones the wiser unless the hoods popped or the gaspedals mashed (easily avoided)

Praise the lowered...

If I had a HEMI on my truck, I would remove the Badges. I΄m building up my truck for my own gratification, I don΄t care what other people think about it.

Yeah...it is kinda irritating Dubz...lol. There was this kid in my neighborhood a few years back that put GT badges all over his 80's Mustang LX. I was like, "C'mon man." All he did was add a rear spoiler to the hatch and add a few badges and instantly his car went from 4 to 8 cylinders...lol. To me its kinda like buying cheap shoes at Walmart then having your Mom stitch Nike swooshes on the side! I'd be more content with what I got than to "lie" to myself.

I guess some people just need that kind of security for some odd reason. I've had two guys buy the V8 Mag after I did and they pulled thie grills out and stuck the Hemi grill in there and threw Hemi badges on the side...one of the guys even messed up and made it offset a bit! I'm very happy with what I got; might throw a few little upgrades on here and there, but it won't be a Hemi badge!

Is "pathetisad" a word? It's just another case of HEMI envy.

Its all those ricers fault. If they wouldn't have started putting VTEC and NOS stickers all over their grocery getters to make them go faster then the Dodge world would never have gotten infected by this foolishness. Hmmm...maybe the ricers should try HEMI badges, that would make them unstoppable. Probably add about 3000 HP at the rear wheels!

I saw something just like that the other day. When I was walking to class I saw a black sport 1500 parked, and it had the HEMI badge, but it also had the SLT emblem on the side of the truck behind the rear QC door, which was only in the 2002 model year. So either they got a HEMI badge or moved the SLT.. Weird...

Well, it could be worse I suppose. It could have been lowered to the ground with a spoiler somehow attached to the back, have some of theose crazy tribal stickers put on the side of it, pink neon glow strip around the license plate and have one of those "My kid is on the honor roll" stickers in the back window! Oh my god, I scare myself sometimes!!!
