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.

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.





Hot AMC, 390 BBG AMX gets loaded, and off loaded to its new home. 3/03/2012
After being without an AMC Javelin or AMX for over a year, I was still morning the lose of me 1969 Big Bad Green Javelin I sold in 2008, YouTube link bellow, an hour before the sale. I had purchased a nice 68 AMX afterwards, and as nice as the car was, the feeling just wasn't there. After only putting a couple of 100 miles on it in a year, and since I had no attachment to the car, I sold it in February of 2011. I thought my phase of AMC's was over! NOT! I spotted a AMX on Ebay classifieds about a week and half ago. The wheels where in motion! Since we where both in different states, It took a lot of hard work, on the sellers, and my part, but the deal was done. I purchased a 1969 Big Bad Green AMX on March 2, 2012, which has 84000 documented miles on the odometer. It is a 390 go-pack car, and has a built 390, automatic with a shift kit, factory part numbered Edlebrock manifold. I purchased it less than 3 hours from my house here in South Western, PA. Kinda known as the rust bucket of the world for new and old cars alike. So rust is a BIG issue in these parts. Turns out that this was a rust free Florida car with ZERO rust anywhere. It went from Florida, to NC, with the last document mileage of 78000 miles in 1987. It now has 84000 miles. So it has been driven 6000 miles in the last 25 years. Tony loaded the car so I could video, As he puts the car in gear, the drive wheels SNAP into action. I had to move the tie-down straps. So sorry for the shaky hand held movements there. My wife was so excited, she wanted to sit in the car for the 3 hour trip home.

1970 AMC Javelin SST abandoned 30 years, first look.
Here is a car my brother just bought. He has been looking to speculate on old cars and look what he found.... This is a '70 AMC Javelin SST, possible Mark Donahue edition. The owners widow allegedly has a stack of paperwork to this car so we are crossing our fingers there is something to document a real Donahue car. This is Tijuana Tan metallic, 360-4V, Safe Command power brakes and power steering. It is very original and unmolested. The story goes is the original owners bought it, drove it until sometime in 1979 when the trans went out. The husband started to pull the trans out, but passed away suddenly. His widow left this car and 3 others where they sat for the next 31 years. They literally had to spend a week cutting down the forest to get them out. This Javelin wears vintage Cragar-type wheels, has the requisite add-on 8 track player also! I will get more video and photos as we progress through clean-up and mechanical evaluation of this AMC. Please comment and subscribe, thanks! PS the SST sold 2 months after this video and the Plymouth has long since been restored and turned into a daily driver.

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!
