This is the car that I first think of when anyone ever mentions 1971 Javelin. These Penske cars were the Trans Am Champions and street sleepers of the day. Unfortunately, all of the street versions were not as hairy as this ride. Don’t get me wrong, they were good cars, not just the beast their track blazing sisters were.
Check out this Road Test of a 1971 street AMC Javelin.
About the Author: I grew up and lived in Iowa for nearly 40 years before moving to Southern California. The time there was very rewarding but the urge for a slower pace moved us to Tennessee a few years ago and we love it. I have been into cars since I was old enough to remember. I don't have a brand loyalty although I do prefer American Muscle. As long as it has four wheels on it I get excited. Few men are lucky enough to be able to share their passion for cars with the woman they love. Fortunately, my wife Katriana is also a gear head and many of our activities revolve around the cars. When they don't we are usually out with our miniature donkeys. You can see more about that part of our lives at http://www.LegendaryFarms.com.
