Looks good. Is the elephant a mascot for the HEMI? I learn so much from this site and its contributors.
The 426 Hemi got the nickname the "elephant engine" back in the day. Heaviest and most complex engine they were using from '66 to '71 during the street Hemi production and had the highest hp for a regular production engine.

When you opened the hood, nothing else looked like that - those big, wide heads, the 2 x 4bbl setup, the big air cleaner and those large crinkle-black finish valve covers.

About the only other engine that looked so different from most everything else was the Ford SOHC 429 - although it had a shorter production run.
