Some photos of me driving my Jensen in a slalom.
Some of the spectators said it looked like I had it up on three wheels!

Yeah, the front swaybar is about as thick as a piece of spaghetti, lol!

I have some good, meaty tires on it and it sticks well despite the body roll. And believe it or not, but these cars have 50/50 weight distribution and are very well balanced...doesn't push the front at all. Of course it has instant oversteer with the gas pedal! I really have to feather the throttle to keep it planted. And the most limiting factor of all is that I was getting thrown out of the seat in the corners. My feet were actually coming off the pedals.

So in summary, the car really does handle amazingly well for such an old car, but is NOT really ideal for slaloms

Yeah, it has some massive balls. It can be a little scary if you abuse the throttle...that's what 505 cubic inches will get you.
