401 AMC Pacer Vs 440 AMC Pacer

My 1978 Pacer (black one) with a built AMC 401 and 5-speed manual transmission versus a 1976 Pacer with a Mopar 440 with a 3-speed auto at Bristol Dragway in Bristol, TN on June, 12 2009 as part of the 2009 Hot Rod Power Tour. My dad was driving in this run, and unfortunately could not get the rear tires to hook up. The Red White and Blue Pacer hooked up, and thus the result. Winner: Red White and Blue Pacer with a 13.72@101.85 followed by our car with a 14.54@96.36. Well work on the car, find a way to get her to hook up, and well be back again. 13s shouldnt be a problem and itll give us something to aspire to. Also, please excuse the sub-fanatics level of camera work...this was me behind the camera as Dan did not come with me on the Power Tour.

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.

PRO STREET AMC EAGLE SX4 * INSANE WHEELIE * HOLY SH*T WHEELSTANDER * 9.78@137MPH * "FREAKINEAGLE"
Awesome wheelstand at Richmond Dragway. '81 AMC Eagle SX-4. Stock bore 454 with tunnel ram with 2-4's. This weekend it ran 6.16 @ 112 in 1/8th and 9.78 @ 137 in 1/4!! All motor! No juice, blower,or turbo charger, just Big Block Chevy power. The next run the FreakinEagle stood straight up on the back bumper and almost flipped backwards. Our day was done. What a show. The Dragway told us not to come back until we had whleeie Bars! Ha, Ha.! Most people think it is a Pinto on steroids. The short time (60' time) is less than 1.39. Not too shabby for a stock leaf spring with SSM slapper bars and a stock Nova 12-bolt rear with 4.10 gears! Hard to beat that "bullet proof" Genuine GM LS-7 Big Block Power! Basically a stock GM LS-7 BBC Engine with cam and 2-4's. "NUFF SAID"! HOTROD. No, that is not a photo shopped picture. People just do not care for AMC Cars. Go figure. I guess it is because it has an awesome GM motor in it. Well how many AMC's do you see drive into the Dragstrip and run a 9,78 @ 137 mph???????????????????????????????????????????? Well By God this one did and it is still sitting in my driveway.





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.[1] The Concord was AMC's volume seller from the time it appeared. 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.

Anna Beth's 1976 AMC Pacer X, 'MoPacer'
This is the first video of this 1976 AMC Pacer X, the MoPacer. After sitting outside for 18 years, it took two years to restore this little car, with modern 4.5L H.O. Jeep EFI power, GM overdrive, A/C, cruise control, XM radio, alarm, intermittent wipers, keyless entry/alarm/remote start, and 17 inch KMC 'Hot Wheels'. It also took nearly 4 years of searching to amass enough NOS parts to perform a show-worthy restoration including all new suspension, A/C and interior components, and more. It also gets 27 MPG! Designed and built by Harrel and Anna Beth Lamkin completed 5-2007. The show quality paint was sprayed by Robert Stachowicz at Delaney Auto Design. It was featured in a 6-page article in Hot Rod magazine, Nov 07. Visit Anna Beth's web site: www.MoPacer.com After the Mopacer appeared in Hot Rod magazine, someone in Illinois with a purple Pacer, copied the white stripe of the MoPacer, and got published in Car and Driver magazine. From a distance (and in images), it is sometimes mistaken for this multiple show-winning 1976 AMC Pacer X, 'MoPacer'.

1977 AMC Pacer Stationwagon Beige
AMC was very inventive...this is the new stationwagon added this year to the Pacer hatchback. Standard engine was the 232 c.i. ohv six, optional, the 258 c.i. six. The stationwagon added even more cargo carrying capacity to the Pacer. It was certainly not like any other car on the road!
