The 1965 Ramcharger Racing Team Give You Hemi Hop-Up Tips
One of the most dominant race teams in the 1960's was the Ramcharger Team. They were so respected and anticipated (they were always on the verge of smashing the latest speed records) that just the hint of an appearance at the local tracks was enough to draw overflowing crowds.
