 They only put the Hemi in the '68 of that A Body style. And that was a special run... build code BO29 with only about 75 built.
The A Body was pretty tiny in the engine bay. So it was a very tight squeeze for Chrysler to pull that off.
They were built for one purpose... to dominate the NHRA Super Stock class.
To this day, they still are at the top of the Super Stock class.

Yes... but it can't come as quickly as the politicians demand.

 

And neither did the other changes.  My point is that everyone seems upset that the .gov is legislating things rather than letting 'the free market' decide. But all the examples of progress you cite are direct results of legislation (regardless of the time it took to make them good).   I'd even say the rate of progress on electrics is substantially faster than ICE. There are many non-legislative reasons for this too, but legislation has been a driving force for much of it.

One of Leonard Pitts' recent columns coined the phrase 'Chicken Fried Dumpster Fire'. Made me chuckle...

 Really good points.

Batteries require a ton of energy to manufacture, have limited life, and are expensive/difficult to dispose of/recycle. Not to mention, the electricity used to charge the batteries has to come from somewhere: fossils still power a big chunk of our grid. There's no such thing as a 'Zero Emissions Vehicle', not even a fuel cell-powered one. It takes energy to split them little hydrogens offa them little oxygens - where does that come from? Sure you can move the emissions around, but it's never 'zero'.

Even wind and solar energy devices require massive amounts of material and energy to produce and install. Ever seen one turbine blade being transported? By truck. Diesel-burning truck. Not to mention the support vehicles running around clearing intersections and checking overhead power lines. That's one blade, for one turbine. Not saying we shouldn't do it, just don't kid yourself how much pollution goes into making it.

If Mazda can get their SkyActiv X engine dialed in, it will be a sea change in ICE performance. I'm a big fan of Mazda - I think it's the last car company still run by actual engineers - but that engine technology is something special. In an industry where a fraction of a percent improvement is considered a win, they're looking at  10,15,20% or more increase in efficiency.
