1970 AMC Hornet, Chevy 305cid + TH350 transmission. Engine has Edelbrock Accu-Drive timing gear set (hence the whine) and Edelbrock Air Gap RPM + 1405 carburettor (hence the raised hood).
No road driving with this one yet, just got the brakes upgraded to 10" drums in the front and making simple tests driving around the building.

Drive Test 1971 AMC SC/360 Hornet Eddie Stakes
Memorial Day 2012. Zero miles on 1971 AMC SC/360 Hornet. Brought the car
out for Memorial Day to honor our veterans who have proudly served this
great country & nothing gets stares, cell phone photos, waves & thumbs up
like a red, white and blue AMERICAN Motors car. I still need to put in sill
plates, the radio, detail engine bay, and install the ram air pieces taken
off several years ago to reproduce of which only the flapper door was made.
Also found out the small gas tube filler hose has crack, so while putting
93 octane at Exxon at Wilcrest & I-10 gas was dripping out and found this
out, so will have to change this quickly. Has several nice comments at the
Exxon from fellow Houston motorists including the clerk who came out for a
look at this busy store. While driving off a guy in Uncle Sam getup for the
Big Tree place at Wycliffe @ I-10 put down his large sign to give son Noah
& me two thumbs up when we passed! The short film was taken at Brittmoore &
I-10 at the old Roomstore, now Doomstore (it's last 2 days this week). I
will have to slightly adjust the timing and Holley 750 on this also as
noticed it bogged slightly in 3rd. The car is original 360cid/280hp, Hurst
4 speed, electric wipers, power steering, and 3:91 Twin Grip. It is the
ONLY known Medium Blue Metallic 71 SC/360 know to exist out of 112 I have
documented with the SC/360 Registry in 12 years.

for AMC's rarest muscle car was 784 units, a 1/3rd of production of the
Rebel Machine and 1/2 of production of SC/Rambler. Fun car to drive, very
light, about 3000 lbs.

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.

AMC Hornet SST driven back into the garage
My Hornet from Finland right after my first testdrive of the year after the
long winter break (ca. 6 months). Getting it into the garage for a wash &
TLC. Be sure to check my other vids for startups etc. Colors are
pearl-based versions of original AMC Trans-Am colors and it's been this way
for about 8 years now, do also note that the paint is VERY dirty from
sitting in a barn for 6 months straight...
1972 AMC Hornet 2 door sedan
This car takes the old Hudson series name "Hornet"...and is a very nice
example of same. I believe the interior was reupholstered, but that is a
guess. Nice, practical, economical car..but competition was fierce at the
