1967 Rambler American at Nostalgia Drags - Kwinana Motorplex
Just a few runs of my '67 AMC Rambler American at the 2012 Retro Drags at Kwinana Motorplex. Lots of fun and a big thanks to Jon Grove for filming. The car was running consistently around 13.2@105mph on 195/75/14 whitewall tyres, the only change being a pressure drop to around 22psi. I've since gone a little quicker (13.1) with a looser converter but I think I'm at the limit of the tyres. Next time out I'll have a set of Mickey Thompson ET Streets under it, that should get the 60-ft down a bit and let me lean on it a little out of the hole.
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.
