I remember an article in the Speed and Sport paper, an interview with Woods about updating the cars-- It's quite involved.. ???   From the rear doorjamb forward is bolt-on; doors and windshield are the same for all Javelins, as is back glass, rear valance and trunk lid...   71 and up cars are "taller" in the taillight panel, moving the spoiler and decklid up... so, different quarters, tail, roof and all the internal sheet metal that goes with those items......  then throw in the 1 inch shorter weelbase of a 70 car, and you have a bunch of new AMC sheetmetal which " ...doesn't quite fit... >:(       Ken

YEAH!!  Somebody else has the Car Life "Wagging the Dog" story!   Could someone PLEASE post the left-out pages of the article ?  I have not been able to find my copy for over a year now!  :'(     There is excellent race-to-race info that I need for an upcoming interview this month.   Thanks,   Ken

Why was I thinking the RWR Camaro was ex-Penske?   I know they "revised" the '70 Javelins to '71 specs, but I always thought this car was bought and prepared much like the following year..    so where was the '69 champ car in '70?    Ken

Thank You!  I've owned it since '91, TONS of work, $, etc.  everybody here understands all of that though!!  I love it, but sometimes things have to change..  Ken

I'm away from all my materials, but the "photocopy" of the front of the trophy that Dick Fischer sent me reads something like " 1976 Central Division A-Sedan Champion"   with drawings and names of the tracks... I don't think Mr. Fischer ventured to any "national" races. The ad in Autoweek with the checkered flag photo reads basically the same thing...   I'm sure it was a "points total" regional Championship.    Ken   

The car is painted "as raced" in '72-76...   Dick Fischer built/owned/drove... It won Cen-Div Championship in '76.   Was usually #18 or 81.     Was listed for sale in Autoweek after championship....   without the logbook in front of me, other owners were ( probably out of order)  Dr. Norm Hoeffleur (sp?)  O.M. Malsbree,  Dan Beatty, who brought it to Texas, painted it red w/ white stripes #70    I may be forgetting one, too....    Ken

Hello,  I've been REALLY enjoying all the stories and pics without joining until now.   This is my favorite site!!  I joined today because for some reason I couldn't see the pics of my own car that KLVN8R posted for me.....         Since this is " General T/A discussion"  I'd like to throw out this fact to ponder concerning AMC longevity..  in '68, when the rules were much tighter concerning 'aftermarket parts',  Ronnie Kaplan's Javelins' finished EVERY race, including a debut at the 12 hours of Sebring, the first year anybody raced an AMC..   Sure horsepower and cornering g's weren't as strong as later, but they were more than competitive, with wetsumps...  Dry sumps became legal for all in '71, but my opinion would be they're not "required" ..     My next vintage car will be a wetsump 'sharpstick'  ::)
