HURST HEMI UNDER GLASS
What do you mean 'nonsense''? It's a hatchback. It's mid-engined. It's just a bit... silly. Built in 1965 by the drag-racing party people at Hurst, the Hemi Under Glass was designed with the singular task of pulling wheelies. Hurst chose a Plymouth Barracuda because it had a huge rear window so they could show off their shiny engine bits, and they needed to put the engine in the back so - combined with an enormous Hemi V8 - it'd stand on its rear tyres when you gunned it.
