When AMC sent the 1970 changeover kit, Warren immediately swapped it
onto his car. When he attended the next NHRA event he was disqualified because of it. He was pretty upset, and yanked the 390 drivetrain
from the car and sold it, installing a 427 Chevy in it's place. he raced modified with the car from then on, quite successfully. The original drivetrain was installed in the Big Bad Blue car of Kinney and Moore, also of GA.
From Robert McCorkle, original owner of Hurst SS/AMX Car #17:
"There's a guy from Alabama who no one probably knows - his name is George Warren. I think he had the #6 SS/AMX - George won the Division 3 NHRA Championship at least 3 years in a row - don't know how many he actually won - if Randy were alive, he could tell you all about him - George was inducted into the Georgia Motorsports Hall of Fame - The last time I did talk to him, he had just gotten back from a Florida Dragrace that he had soundly beaten the field - what makes this so noteworthy is that George is 77 years young. Hmmm, maybe I have a few years left driving (at 66).
Here is a later (non-Hurst?) AMX driven by George Warren:
