Drag Race Ride Along
Bracket Race at Milan Dragway. Went out with my brother-in-law, Matt. (He did the run right before me.) This is the second round of eliminations. I actually won this round and the next two to make it to the quarterfinals. Then I lost due to my slip-up on reaction time (0.090 sec). Enjoy the ride...

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.

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.





Vega drag race ride along
Here is a ride along with my new Go-Pro camera mounted inside car. 76 street Vega at Grove Creek Raceway. I layed off during the wheelie and came down hard- not used to not being able to steer or see while the wheels are off the ground so instincts kicked in.
