Supercharged Hemi Henry J At SEMA
http://blogs.hotrod.com/supercharged-he ... 39095.html
It can be a challenge to make a Henry J seem fresh—we’ve all seen more gasser J’s than you can shake a stick at—but Ted Dzus’s ’51 brings some serious hardware to bear without seeming trite. The supercharged all-aluminum 528 Hemi certainly lends it some credibility, but attention to detail and smart aesthetic touches, like the mixture of beautiful unrestored chrome trim pieces and carefully chosen satin-black accents, give the build visual interest, not to mention continuity: for example, the PPG School Bus Yellow is overlaid with a subtle blink-and-you’ll-miss-it red pearl that’s referenced by the red Autometer gauges in the dash. Like a lot of SEMA cars, the final bolts were turned just hours ago so the car could be hustled onto the show floor, and it hasn’t exactly been fired up yet. But don’t write it off as a trailer queen: Ted’s cars are built to be drivers, and he’s planning on taking this one on next year’s Power Tour. Watch for him!

I cannot say that I have ever seen a Henry J before?
