Just a video my wife shot of my Hornet on it's first testdrive this year. The car is 1970 AMC Hornet SST 2 door with AMC 360cid/A727 and AMC-20 rear with 2.78 gears. New updates include Proform HEI distributor, Edelbrock performer intake+carb, all new water/oil/gas hoses, etc. It's got more pickup than ever and it's running like a dream now, small adjustments still ahead of courseHopefully getting it back on the road after some electrics details next week.

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.

1976 AMC Pacer Test Drive | AutoMoments Time Warp
The car world loves to hate the Pacer, but how many of those people have actually driven one? After producing an entire documentary about the car, we decided to test one for ourselves. While far from perfect, we found the Pacer to not be nearly as bad as people claim. In fact, this strangle little car is pretty cool in it's own weird sort of way.

1972 AMC Hornet 2 door sedan
This car takes the old Hudson series name "Hornet"...and is a very nice example of same. I believe the interior was reupholstered, but that is a guess. Nice, practical, economical car..but competition was fierce at the time.

AMC Hornet 232 flowmaster 44.mp4
I bought a pair of Flowmaster 44 mufflers for the V8 which is still in the engine stand. I thought the AMC inline six would sound nice with one of these so I tried it out, works well I think!

AMC's compact Hornet earned noticeable appearance changes for 1973. One change of note was the windshield moving forward. All hornets were six and half longer this year but still on the 108 inch wheelbase as before. The new recoverable bumper system was AMC's way to meet the federal regulation which required font bumpers to withstand a 5 mph impact. The Hornet came in four body styles: 2 & 4 door sedans, the Sportabout wagon and the hatchback coupe like this one shown. Engines: 232 cid 6 cylinder with 100 bhp., or a 6, 258 cid with 110 bhp., V8's, 304 cid with 150 bhp., or the 360 cid with 175 bhp. This hatchback coupe is the first year model from AMC and has the sporty " X " option package with it's distinct roofline, hinged floor panel and ample load space. This hatchback coupe cost $2,587 at the dealer. Thanks very much for viewing this AMC Hornet Hatchback Coupe.
