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 areodynamics. 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.
Part 1-Motor Sports Reunion Trans Am Qualifying Race, Laguna Seca, 11:30 AM, August 17, 2013
Part 1-first 17 minutes from Go Pro 3 Dash Cam of 9th place starter, Ken
Epsman, in the #2, Penske built, 1970/71 Javelin...in 1971, a 2nd team, led
by Roy Woods, campaigned factory Javelins, together with
Penske...Graciously, Penske gave this particular '70 Javelin to Roy Woods'
team, who campaigned this car, rebodied as a 1971 Javelin, in the '71 Trans
Am series. Additionally, Penske shared with Woods all the Javelin R&D work
Penske's team produced during the 1970 season. Driver's of this famous
Trans-Am Javelin include Mark Donohue and Peter Revson, for Penske. During
''71, again Peter Revson, with Tony Adamowicz, Vic Elford, George Follmer,
and Roy Woods himself. The following year, Roy Woods again drove, teaming
with George Follmer, the latter going on to win the 1972 Trans Am
1970 amc gremlin road race car testing @ HPR 12-27-13
out testing my AMC Gremlin road race car @ High Plains Raceway, Byers
Car was originally built for the 24 hours of Lemons / chump car endurance
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.
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!
West Coast All AMC Show with AMX III
Lance Lambert travels to Irwindale, CA to an AMC show and an in-depth look
at the AMX III. This short excerpt from a longer program shows some of the
cars and the AMX 3. Music by Susan and the Surftones. More info at

Good race until we broke two wheel studs about halfway in while exiting
T11. They were mistakenly torqued while hot so the cold torque was a little
low. First time we have ever lost studs that were installed properly. Thank
goodness they didn't let go in T10. Lesson learned! The other cars I was
wrestling with were GTS3 class M3's mostly.
A very nice 1970 AMX I shot at the World Of Wheels 2013 in Chattanooga....A
great car with a great story...very cool...Check it out...Make sure you

1969 amc javelin sst restoration
This is a project that has taken me, my brothers, and my dad about 8 years.
The paint is a pearl blue flame by ford, its a 360ci amc motor bored approx
0.30 over, the rims are cragar 5 spokes. If you have any questions just
ask. It used to run at union grove back in the day.
I will continue to add new videos as they are available.
Note* i do not claim ownership of this music
side note: no the car is all metal now theres less than a quart of bondo
used on the whole car, i didnt get pics of fabrication due to a broken
camera. It doesnt show us fabricating a trunk, the front fenders , the
troughs, the rear quarter panels were a 3 piece, the floor pans, or random
holes weve patched. to give you an idea of the work theres more than 1000
hours in body work alone.
1969 AMC AMX 390 V8 Four Speed Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1969 AMC AMX. The
exterior is coated in a gloss red, with silver stripes running the length
of the vehicle. The interior is a rare option Platinum vinyl. Under the
hood, you will find a 390 CID V8 backed by 4-spd manual transmission. The
engine offers a mild camshaft, forged pistons, roller rockers, and has been
balanced. The rear end is a 3.54 posi grip. Other options include: AM/FM
Radio, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl
Interior, and Radial Tires. There were no short cuts taken on this
restoration. Many of the parts used are NOS and the mileage since rebuild
is just 325 miles! Thanks for taking a look!
Filmed at Gateway Classic Cars near St. Louis, MO

Instruments: Guitar, Bass, Kit, Organ, EP
With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

1971 Trans Am Javelin AMX
This AutoAcademics video of a 1971 Trans Am Javelin AMX replica shows the
attention to detail during the car's restoration. The nostalgic paint
scheme and every sponsor graphic is just as it was on the original Penske
race car. A beautiful 4-year restoration done very well. Contact
