    Beautiful car! But how old are those tires? Goodyear has not made Eagle ST's for a long time...

    So are you saying the car AND the tires are classics? :)

    Did you have the engine dynoed? If so how much torque did it make?

    No, but it was built to exceed the stock torque which was only 510 ft/lbs IIRC.

    I had Eagle ST's on my 71 Stage 1. They were great tires for muscle cars. I was sorry Goodyear quit making them...
