1970s: AMX-1 funny car


The AMX-1 of Walker & Geary was another former altered converted for funny car racing. The short wheelbased AMX-1 ran OK every now and then, but acted exactly like what it was: an ill tempered altered with a car body. The car began life as a Fiat Topolino, but Walker & Geary saw that more money could be made in funny car racing. Several drivers fought the mean little funny car, which eventually ran best times in the sevens at 190 plus. Fuel altered veteran Tom Ferraro did the best in the AMX-1 with a 7.35 at 193. Walker later partnered with Gary Densham on a Pinto in 72-73. (Photo courtesy of Mike Ditty)
