1978 AMX Sport Compact Car
The AMC Concord is a compact and economical car by 1970s US standards,
produced by the American Motors Corporation for the 1978 through 1983 model
years. The Concord replaced the AMC Hornet and to some extent the mid-size
AMC Matador, discontinued after 1978 in a market moving to downsized
automobiles. Offered in four-door sedan, two-door coupé (through 1982),
three-door hatchback (through 1979) and four-door station wagon forms, AMC
sought to give its, by this time venerable, compact car an image of luxury,
class, and value. The Concord was AMC's volume seller from the time it
The car was available as a sports-oriented two-door hatchback AMX model
without any "Concord" badges or identification for the 1978 model year, as
well as the Concord Sundancer convertible during 1981 and 1982, an
authorized conversion sold through AMC dealers.
AMC External Distributor Gear Oiler Addition
An attempt to make the distributor gears last longer on an AMC. Keep in
mind the distributor gears turn the oil pump. Excessive oil pump pressure
can lead to timing chain stretch and distributor gear failure.

Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!

AMC 1980 AMX Spirit restoration
This is my 1980 AMC Spirit AMX. I finished restoring this car in July of
2002. This car has new paint,interior,transmission,3:73 rear and a built up
360 AMC engine producing close to 400 hp. I sold this car to finish my 86
Corvette. I miss it very much. This car had the Exhaust turned down towards the ground. It
sounded real bassy like rolling thunder. This car was super fast. I took it
to the 100th Rambler anniversary in Kenosha, WI in July 2002. With Group 19
AMC club. We also took it to Long Island, New York one summer, and I
cruised my old neighborhood. Its sad to say that I sold it to a young man
and the car is getting abused. I saw some chips and scratches on it. AMC
made awesome engines.

Turbocharged LS V8 AMC Gremlin visits LV Cars and Coffee
First time we heard about Lehigh Valley Cars and Coffee, so we decided to
take a trip down. First the drag radials rubbed, so we put more air in the
air shocks. Then the air shocks exploded, so we put the small tires back
on. We eventually made it and ruined the atmosphere of the meet.
