North AMC Eagle Rescue - 2 AMC Eagles saved
Recording Date October 30, 2010
Dean bought Three Eagles sitting abandoned in a back field on the edge of
the tree line, next to a small lake.
They were just rotting in the tall grass.
5 of us went up, and we managed to rescue the 2 door, and the 4 door. The
wagon had to be left behind and it was partially stripped and damaged. We
trailered the 4 door just south of Edmonton (5 hour round trip) and then
came back for the 2 door. When Keith and I got back, the other 3 guys had
stripped as much as they could, and we loaded up the 2 door, and split.
By the time we got back to load the 2 door, it was too dark to film, and we
were just hurrying to get outta there.

1978 AMC Pacer
The AMC Pacer is a two-door compact automobile that was produced in the
United States by the American Motors Corporation between 1975 and 1980.
Design work began in 1971. The rounded shape and large glass area were
unusual compared with the three-box designs of the era.
The Pacer's width is equal to full-sized domestic vehicles at the time, and
this unique design feature was promoted by AMC as "the first wide small
car." The Pacer was the first modern mass-produced, U.S. automobile
design using the cab forward concept.
The Pacer's rounded and aerodynamic "jellybean" styling has made it an icon
of the 1970s. The May 1976 issue of Car and Driver dubbed it "The Flying
Fishbowl", and it was also described as "the seventies answer to George
Jetson's mode of transportation at a time when "Detroit was still rolling
out boat-sized gas guzzlers.

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!
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!
