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.

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.
2009 amc day at st thomas dragway. 74 Amc Hornet 401
OK this is my brothers AMC . He got this off of Craigs list for $700. Has a
232 six cylinder with a 2 BBL. carburetor and a automatic trans. Don't know
what type of trans though. Every thing on this car is original but the
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
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!
1973 AMC HORNET HATCHBACK COUPE -- NOTICEABLE CHANGES
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
