AMC Rambler American, Javelin Drag Race

After both building new engines for our cars in the last 12 months, and much smack talk (mainly from me), it was time for the BS to stop and the racing to start. The venue was the Kwinana Motorplex in Perth, Western Australia at the once-a-year Retro Drag Day. Great event where we managed to get four qualifying passes in before eliminations. This was both our second run for the day but the first time we had lined up against each other.

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.

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.

Just a handful of cars I managed to grab some video of at Speed Week as they left the line. It's a pretty low-key affair as they get pushed off the line, but once those engines fire up and they start getting into it, there's nothing like it.
