The Unfortunate History of the AMC Pacer
Behind all the jokes and insults, the AMC Pacer is actually a car with a great deal of history. It began as radical new design from an underdog company. In an attempt to combat the big, bland, boxy cars from Detroit's "Big Three," little American Motors Corporation decided to build something a little different. Their one-eyed car stylist Dick Teague proposed a small, wide car with big windows and smooth aerodynamics. Americans had never seen anything like it. This in-depth documentary tells the true story of the Pacer. Unbeknownst to many, the car persevered through manufacturing setbacks, government regulations, and many other troubles. Featuring a ton of old car advertisements and rare footage of AMC's factory, the film helps paint a picture of the Pacer's world. Director Joe Ligo sits down with AMC stylist Vincent Geraci, author Patrick Foster, and television personalities John Davis and Pat Goss from PBS's MotorWeek.





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!





1970 amc gremlin road race car testing @ HPR 12-27-13
out testing my AMC Gremlin road race car @ High Plains Raceway, Byers Colorado. Car was originally built for the 24 hours of Lemons / chump car endurance racing series. Although the cage does fit into FIA article 253 specs so its basically legal for Rally racing as well. Powered by a 1996 Jeep cherokee 4.0 HO motor and 2wd AX-15 5 speed jeep trans. Running the full jeep harness, ecu and fuel injection. The rear end is out of a 1996 ford explorer, 8.8 with 3:73 gears & factory limited slip. Not sure how well that LSD works anymore, getting significant wheel spin coming out of corners. suspension is stock cut springs in front, stock leafs in back, factory front sway and explorer rear sway bar. the Jeep ecu thinks its going 110 when its really doing 80 due to tire size which kicks in the top speed limiter. A re flash should solve this. pedal arrangement is funky so its hard to heal toe / rev match, the car is a work in progress.
