Sep 5, 2012 update on P71's 1973 AMC Javelin

Take the long way home

Do you see the busy road on the left? That’s I-5. I don’t like that road. I like the twisty 2-laners that roll through hills. I took the Javelin on my favorite driving road. It’s no 944 (or RX-7, or Miata, or Mazda5, or even P71) as the brakes and steering leave a lot to be desired (probably because of the 185 front tires…), but that torque. The gearing sucks for an autocross, but open up a straightaway and it just pulls like a freight train!
