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.

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!
1973 AMC Javelin AMX
When is a Javelin also an AMX? Jack Boughton explains how he came to own
this unique 401 cubic inch Javelin/AMX and what he's done since the day he
drove it off the lot when it was brand new. Lance Lambert, host of
television's "Vintage Vehicle Show", learns why, among other things, the
interior of Jack's car is so unusual. More information about the "Vintage
Vehicle Show" can be found at www.vintagevehicletv.com.
1974 AMC Javelin AMX: It's Alive!
It's alive! Watch the video! Matt Manska and Gary Shuerman get my Javelin
AMX running. Remember, it's been sitting since 1976 with only 36,511
original miles. It was started once in 1981 and once in 1989 and that's
all. I siphoned 12 gallons of fuel out of the tank, replaced with fresh
gasoline and installed a new starter. The rest of the pre-starting
mechanics were handled by Matt Manska and Gary Shuerman (thanks guys!):
They installed a new fuel filter, new air filter, new battery, new spark
plugs, new plug wires, new points and condensor, new cap and rotor, added
Marvel Mystery oil to the fuel tank and engine, added coolant to the
radiator, and primed the engine using a small block Chevy oil pump priming
tool. And, it started!
