There's a new exhibit at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan, called What Can You Hemi? On display are a few oddballs that fall under the umbrella of, "Yeah, that thing's got a Hemi." A snow-blower, a merry-go-round, a grill, and an ice resurfacer are operational (really) items invented by the finalists of a Chrysler-sponsored contest from 2005. The fifth in the group is described as the evolution of the Chrysler Air Raid Siren, which originally acted as an ear-bleeder for enemy attack during wartime but became Trenton, Michigan's primary tornado civil defense device from 1958 through the 1970s. The Hemi exhibition runs through May 2.
If you're into four-seater side-by-sides, you might dig this new Polaris Ranger RZR 4, which came out of a partnership between Robby Gordon and Polaris. The graphics replicate the ones on Robby's TORC truck from the race in Crandon, Wisconsin, and there's also a Robby Gordon Off-Road logo on the front side panels. Other features include Maxxis Big Horn tires, Black Bruiser wheels, and an 800cc high-output twin EFI engine. It weighs 1,255 pounds.
