On "My Car Story" we're in St. Charles IL at the St Charles East High School 10th Annual Car, Truck, and Motorcycle show on 5-17-14. We're looking at a 1973 American Motors AMC Gremlin X Levi's Edition which means the car's interior seats are covered with Levi's jeans! According to the car's Owner Mr. Pete Legenza the car took 3 1/2 years to restore. ENJOY!





1962 AMC Rambler American
I thought you might like a look at this really clean little 1962 AMC Rambler American. It's still powered by the original flathead straight six, with only 78,xxx original miles. The paint is slick and the interior has been completely redone. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!





1978 AMC Gremlin
The AMC Gremlin is a two-door subcompact car produced in the United States, Canada and Mexico by the American Motors Corporation (AMC) and VehĂ­culos Automotores Mexicanos. The Gremlin was an economy car by 1970s U.S. standards. It served as a foundation for alternative fuels and power systems, including pure electric. Designed by Bob Nixon from an idea by Richard A. Teague, the car was based on a shortened and adapted Hornet platform with a Kammback-type tail. faster than other subcompacts of the time, it competed with the Chevrolet Vega and Ford Pinto, and also with imported cars including the Volkswagen Beetle and Toyota Corona. The manufacturer described it as "the first American-built import". The Gremlin was introduced on 1 April 1970, and a total of 671,475 were built in its single generation (one chassis design) and also in only one body style.

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.





4x4ing with 2 AMC Eagles in Off-road Park
We went out 4x4ing out on a trail, and Pat decided he was going to cross a deep mudhole. He got stuck for a bit when the car got high-centered in the hole. Then we got him out. then we had to pull apart the starter (that was full of mud and water) and we got it fixed, and got going again. http://www.amceaglesden.com http://www.amcevolution.com

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.
