PRO STREET AMC EAGLE SX4 * INSANE WHEELIE * HOLY SH*T WHEELSTANDER * 9.78@137MPH * "FREAKINEAGLE"
Awesome wheelstand at Richmond Dragway. '81 AMC Eagle SX-4. Stock bore 454 with tunnel ram with 2-4's. This weekend it ran 6.16 @ 112 in 1/8th and 9.78 @ 137 in 1/4!! All motor! No juice, blower,or turbo charger, just Big Block Chevy power. The next run the FreakinEagle stood straight up on the back bumper and almost flipped backwards. Our day was done. What a show. The Dragway told us not to come back until we had whleeie Bars! Ha, Ha.! Most people think it is a Pinto on steroids. The short time (60' time) is less than 1.39. Not too shabby for a stock leaf spring with SSM slapper bars and a stock Nova 12-bolt rear with 4.10 gears! Hard to beat that "bullet proof" Genuine GM LS-7 Big Block Power! Basically a stock GM LS-7 BBC Engine with cam and 2-4's. "NUFF SAID"! HOTROD. No, that is not a photo shopped picture. People just do not care for AMC Cars. Go figure. I guess it is because it has an awesome GM motor in it. Well how many AMC's do you see drive into the Dragstrip and run a 9,78 @ 137 mph???????????????????????????????????????????? Well By God this one did and it is still sitting in my driveway.
