You think that car is not heavy? That is a heavy BB car and he has the Back Seat in too. It may be a little lighter in the front but not much with that big ol' engine in it

Thats the famous "Green Weenie", The "Green Weenie" is a 9 second Chevelle.

Oh, and the "Green Weenie" doesnt have a transbrake in it either, its a street car

Mark, I think that the lower front pivot is what Tech has a problem with. What I have a problem with is why did they allow it for X number of years and then decide to not like it?

Do you think the Chevelles that run in Stock with big blocks are lightweight? ...and by the way, Stockers do not have a trans-brake either. A 1970 Chevelle Stocker with a 454 CID engine will be moving 3900 pounds or more down the track.

Because someone whined, I'm sure. The right person whined, more than likely.

The "Green Weenie" is not light (as some seem to think it is) and is a "Street Car",,, Not a class car and it hooks darn good, In my opinion it is one of the best working factory suspension Chevelle's out there

Here is a Video of a 9.996 pass from a "Street Car"

Cool Re: Alf Wiebe A body rear control arms

My question- Does a 70 Chevelle LS-6 car make AA/SA? Wouldn't that be the ultimate test of all this?

Not with the new factor. A 4 speed car can make AA/S, but an automatic car cannot make AA/SA. Like the 69 Chevelle 427/425, the stick is barely a natural A car, the automatic is not quite(however, the 69 automatic is 8.49xxx, they round it UP to 8.5).

The "Green Weenie" is impressive, however here in the east, we see Joe Abazzia's immaculate "King Rat" legal A/B/stocker!
