One last short burn-out with my HOT 1969 AMC Javelin
In June of 2008 I was forced to sell my beloved 69 Javelin because of medical problems that my wife was having, and loss of work time, and pay, to be by her side no matter what it takes. The bills still keep coming in, and I need to turn her into cash. My 1969 AMC Javelin 1 hour before the new owner picked up the car. I have owned for almost 40 years. It has a built 343, 30 over, Crane cam & kit, Hooker Headers, Offy 360 manifold, 4 speed, 3:91 posi rear, Lalewood tracton bars. It is a very strong runner, and I am still crying over the loss, that will never be able to be replaced. The second part of the clip is my sons 1968 AMX. At least he will carry on the AMC tradition in the family. Maybe he will let me get behind the wheel sometime. UPDATE!!! Nov 2008... The new owner has informed me that he had blown the motor up, iy only has 9000 miles on it since a total restoration almost 25 years ago. Way to go!!!! I should have sold my Corvette and kept my Javelin. Boy did I screw up!!! UPDATE 3/04/2012. I once agin have a smile on my face, as I just purchased a fantastic looking BBG 1969 AMX. It sounds and looks a lot like my BBG Javelin. Here is the link to the day I picked up my new ride, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tiqUIe_ZH78

1970 AMC Javelin

Lance Lambert, host of TV's "Vintage Vehicle Show" learns how Dennis changed this car from a well used used car into magazine cover beauty.

1969 AMX (SS/AMX) sounds tuff, at the Mopar Nationals, IN, 1997
We are at the Mopar Nationals in Indianapolis, IN. The AMC cars had an invite to the show. Jeff Kennedy and myself volunteer our time to help out with the parking as members of the AMO. A fine sounding SS AMX pulls into park on the show field. There where only 53 of these cars built for racing only. 8-1997. tHANKS FOR WATCHING





Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 1969 AMX - /Big Muscle
When the American Motors Corporation (AMC) released the AMX back in 1969 the motoring world didn't know what to make of it. It had two seats like a sports car, a solid live axle and a raucous V8 like a muscle car, and styling that could've gone either way. Owner Jimi Day has been a long time fan of the AMX so when he got the opportunity to construct his own he pulled out all the stops, went buck-ass wild, and built what is arguably one of the best AMX's on the planet Earth.

Trans Am Paddock '66-'72 Sights & Sounds
Happy July 4th! If you have speakers plugged into your computer, turn it up. Hopefully you have a subwoofer, too! This footage is me walking through Vic Edelbrock's collection of vintage Trans-Am racecars as they're being prepared for the Group 7A races and enjoying the sights and sounds... The Trans-Am Series is an automobile racing series which was created in 1966 by Sports Car Club of America (SCCA). This was the proving ground for all American manufacturers to compete with race-modified production cars. It ran until 1972 when at the height of Richard Nixon's incompetence dealing with OPEC, we had a gas shortage which was compounded by an embargo levied against us. Syria, Egypt and Tunisia didn't really like Nixon re-feuling their arch-enemy, Israel. Rather than address the shortage, the auto industry was heavily regulated to curb consumption. Further restrictions placed on the oil industry by an other rocket surgeon, Jimmy Carter, left us unable to further develop our own oil supplies which cemented these changes to the auto industry. These events changed muscle cars as we knew them into complete turds for over a decade while US auto makers struggled with the regulations and re-learned how to produce decent cars again... but for the "pony cars", it was the beginning of the end. The oil embargo of 1973 changed the shape of not only the auto industry, but all forms of auto racing to follow. You used to be able to afford these cars. I remember when... back when I was in high school... But it's 2010 now. This race celebrates all the classic cars you've dreamed of owning or being seen in. These things auction in the 6+ figures now (because of their race history). Enjoy this parade of '60's and early '70's model Ford Mustangs, Chevrolet Camaros, Plymouth Barracudas, Mercury Cougars, AMC Javelins, Pontiac Firebirds, and Dodge Challengers. This event required that they be in their original race condition in order to run with the Group 7A cars, so the contest to follow is all about how much compression these 40+ year old cars have left, and who's driving it. These beauties have been meticulously preserved by the best collectors, engineers and mechanics in the industry. I hope you guys can appreciate it because this is off my normal subject material. I just wanted to change things up and post something American on Independence day. This one's for the Veterans.
