After both building new engines for our cars in the last 12 months, and much smack talk (mainly from me), it was time for the BS to stop and the racing to start. The venue was the Kwinana Motorplex in Perth, Western Australia at the once-a-year Retro Drag Day. Great event where we managed to get four qualifying passes in before eliminations. This was both our second run for the day but the first time we had lined up against each other.
Muscle Car Of The Week Video #71: 1969 Hurst SC/Rambler
http://www.musclecaroftheweek.com - The American Motors Corporation was
known for building reliable, lower-priced cars targeted towards families
and those seeking basic transportation. But when you combine a
lightweight economy car with a potent V8, you have the recipe for an
outstanding performer. This was the case with the 1969 Hurst SC/Rambler,
a car built in conjunction with Hurst Performance to be a drag strip terror
and look cool doing it! The SC/Rambler boasted a 315 HP 390 cube V8, a
T10 4-speed, 3.54:1 gears, and other performance tricks like a complete
lack of options, subframe connectors, rolled fender lips, staggered shocks,
and Thrush mufflers. This little Super Car rocked and advertised 14.2 in
the quarter @ 100+ mph, all for less than $3000.00. Quite a package.

1959 AMC Super Rambler 2 Door Wagon - 0027-ndy - Gateway Classic Cars Indianapolis
For sale is a true head turner and extremely well built, custom, 1959 AMC
Rambler American Super Wagon. This is one ride you can drive and are not
likely to run into another one. This specific wagon underwent a
nut-and-bolt restoration just 2000 miles ago. The 2000 miles gave plenty of
time to work out the bugs because this is no average wagon. Under the hood
is a 5.3L LS1 truck engine and a 4L60E automatic transmission. The LS1 came
out of a donor truck and is stock with 22,000 miles, 20,000 at the time of
installation. The powerful V8 offers Sanderson ceramic coated headers. The
front end is comprised of a Mustang II with front disc brakes,
tubular A-arms, dropped spindles, QA1 coil overs, front sway bar and powder
coated 4 bar rear suspension. The rear end is an 8" Ford with 3.40 gears.
The Exhaust is comprised of 2 1/2"
stainless with stainless FlowMaster mufflers. Other options include: AC,
AM/FM Radio, CD Player, Cruise Control, Power Steering, Power Seat, Tilt
Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Spare Tire, Radial Tires, and
Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. Everything on this car was either refurbished or
rebuilt. The exterior is professionally done in Dupont Speck Master Green
and a black top. All the paint is show quality and is base coat/clear coat.
Due to the Rambler's thorough restoration, the car can be driven regularly
and effortlessly. The AMC can get 22-25 MPG!!! Not too bad for a custom hot
rod. If you are looking for a show car, custom street rod, or a daily
driver that stands out amongst the pack please look no further. To view the
1959 AMC American Super Wagon in greater detail, including a video, please
