1970 AMC Hornet SST
My 1970 AMC Hornet SST. Only paid $700. It has had a few upgrades done to
it by previous owners.
The engine is now a 232 from a 78 Concord. It had a Carter BBD 2 BBL from a
258. The transmission is now a Torque-Command from a 72 Gremlin. The front
disk brakes and rear end are from a 80 Spirit. The 100MPH speedo gauge is
from a Gremlin and the Fuel Economy Meter is from a 75/77 Hornet/Gremlin.
It may not be a matching number car anymore but its still a great ride and
still all AMC.

TX2K13 "The Movie" Streets of Houston, Texas drag racing 2013 Full Event
FULL EVENT: TX2K13 "The Movie" Streets of Houston, Texas & Lonestar
Motorsports Park drag racing 2013! Follow Aries Xecutioner filming on his
first 3,200 mile round trip epic solo road trip to the city of Houston,
Texas to see the racing action for the T2K13 Supra Nationals held in its
13th edition. Driving a total beater at basically the last minute and not
knowing a single person in the car scene from there, I showed up with my
cameras just to catch what I could and feel this video is a good
representation of what anyone in the United States driving from far away
would encounter and see... I saw Mullets Twin turbo Underground Racing Lamborghini Gallardo
Superleggera in my first hour in town, saw packs of Lamborghini Aventadors
jockey through the streets of Houston, saw some of the baddest, fastest
street cars I have ever seen in one place at the Omni Hotel parking garage
in West Houston. Every single Corvette and Dodge Viper had Boost whether turbo or Supercharger. Every car had drag radial tires, Boosted engines and GoPro cameras
mounted all over the cars driving around town. I saw some crazy burnout
madness and turbocharged action all
weekend at the drag strip at Lonestar Motorsports Park and Hennessey
Performance in Sealy, Texas. It was an awesome journey I intend to make
again with a faster vehicle and
more cameras! Hope you enjoy this video and definitely take at look at
1320video the official video event sponsor for the complete event coverage,
and SUBSCRIBE to my channel for more epic drag racing action all summer

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!
1970 AMC Javelin SST abandoned 30 years, first look.
Here is a car my brother just bought. He has been looking to speculate on
old cars and look what he found....
This is a '70 AMC Javelin SST, possible Mark Donahue edition. The owners
widow allegedly has a stack of paperwork to this car so we are crossing our
fingers there is something to document a real Donahue car.
This is Tijuana Tan metallic, 360-4V, Safe Command power brakes and power
It is very original and unmolested. The story goes is the original owners
bought it, drove it until sometime in 1979 when the trans went out. The
husband started to pull the trans out, but passed away suddenly.
His widow left this car and 3 others where they sat for the next 31 years.
They literally had to spend a week cutting down the forest to get them out.
This Javelin wears vintage Cragar-type wheels, has the requisite add-on 8
track player also!
I will get more video and photos as we progress through clean-up and
mechanical evaluation of this AMC.
Please comment and subscribe, thanks!
PS the SST sold 2 months after this video and the Plymouth has long since
been restored and turned into a daily driver.
1974 Hornet Hatchback by AMC
Hi fellow youtubers! So there is a bit of a story here regarding this
nice example of a 1974 AMC Hornet. I used to own this car from 2002-2007.
Then, I sold it. I regretted doing that and so this year, I decided I was
going to ask the person I sold it to in 2007 if I could buy it back. I had
asked that person to contact me if they ever decided to sell it to offer me
the first right of refusal to buy it back. I even called this person every
year since 2007 to touch base with them, see how they were doing and if
they were enjoying the car. I found out in Oct 2011, when I made my call
to this person to inquire about buying it back, that they had sold it in
JUNE of 2011!! They had never even contacted me to tell me that they were
going to sell it. (Even though I had provided them with all of my still
valid contact info that was still with all the paperwork when I bought the
car back!) I was certainly "bummed" (that's me being "nice") to say the
least, but I tracked down the car from the June sale and then found out it
had been sold yet again in only a six month timeframe! Out of
desperation, I put an add out on craigslist with a photo of the car and a
nice gentleman called me back who knew the new current owner! (That's like
winning the LOTTERY!! WOW!) So, true to his word, the nice gentleman who
called me in response to my craigslist add, contacted the current owner and
gave them my number. The current owner actually called me back and I
explained to them that I used to own this car and would love the chance to
buy it back. They thought about it for a day and decided they would sell
it back to me. I was elated!! I felt so lucky to have been able to just
find it again, let alone buy it back! To learn that it was still in great
shape after five years of not owning it was just MORE icing on the cake!!
So, I hopped on a flight to Ohio and drove this car all the way back to
Palm Springs, CA where I live! (I had it gone through thoroughly by a
mechanic first!) Even so, the trip was not without incident (I broke down
in Stroud, OK,). Again, lady luck was on my side and I was able to get it
repaired and made it the rest of the way home without incident! That is
why I mention in the video about being glad to get it back and what I'm
referencing when I say "what I went through to get it back!"
This car was originally an Arizona car and although it is not a Hornet
X, it is a very well optioned out Hornet. It's original factory color was
Sienna Orange as evidenced under the hood. Before I bought it (the first
time) in 2002, it had already been re-painted to it's current Grasshopper
Green (paint code C-8) color. I think the color suits the car nicely, (and
it's great to say I have a "Green Hornet"), but I would love to re-paint
the under hood area to match the rest of the car. Even though this car
only shows about 47,000 miles on the clock, I would like to slowly restore
it and have all the systems of the car gone through since she is 38 years
old. Other than the re-paint and new belts, hoses and tires, etc, the rest
is pretty much all stock and original. I think the design and body lines
of this car have withstood the test of time well. She certainly draws lots
of attention and thumbs up from folks everywhere. I had a lady once follow
me for ten miles just to ask me what kind of car it was! It's fun to take
her out and enjoy the nostalgia that it brings out in people. People tell
me all the time that they used to own one,or that they learned to drive in
one, or even that theirs was a POS or that it was the worst car they ever
owned!! LOL. It's all good!
My Mom had a four door Hornet that we tooled around in when I was a
small kid, so for me, I love the good memories that it brings back to me of
that period of time in my life. The music was fun and times were simpler.
This little two door hatchback, with it's V-8 and A/C, bucket seats,
"hidden compartment" and two rear view mirrors and optional alloy wheels
makes this a very well optioned Hornet! The fact that it is also in very
well maintained shape and it isn't a rust bucket and that it has NOT been
abused makes it now even MORE rare! Before I bought it back, I looked long
and hard for another Hornet hatchback and there were REAL SLIM pickings out
there! Most were the in-line sixes (still an awesomely rugged and stout
engine!), without A/C and most had bench seats. I can tell you that in the
last five years, a LOT of these have been crushed or sold for scrap. So,
maybe I didn't win the "mega-millons" lottery, but I sure feel like I
"buzzed" in on the amazing chance to get her back! Thanks for your
interest in my video and for reading my small book if you made it this far!
Please feel free to leave a comment if you can behave and write
something nice or meaningful. Peace and take care everyone!
