Pinks Race Ford Mustang vs
AMC held in Lebanon NY October 13 2007
Ford Mustang built by Team
Hammer of New Milford CT. The driver of the AMC was caught, and admitted
to sand-bagging in order to win the race! He ran a 10 second car all day in
qualifying.. then suddenly had a 9.5 second car.. The purpose of the
qualifier races is to match vehicles appropriately, not so that you can
fake it all day and then cheat and win a race! What a LOSER! If you have to
cheat to win... YOU SUCK! This episode of Pinks should be aired February or
AMC 1980 AMX Spirit restoration
This is my 1980 AMC Spirit AMX. I finished restoring this car in July of
2002. This car has new paint,interior,transmission,3:73 rear and a built up
360 AMC engine producing close to 400 hp. I sold this car to finish my 86
Corvette. I miss it very much. This car had the Exhaust turned down towards the ground. It
sounded real bassy like rolling thunder. This car was super fast. I took it
to the 100th Rambler anniversary in Kenosha, WI in July 2002. With Group 19
AMC club. We also took it to Long Island, New York one summer, and I
cruised my old neighborhood. Its sad to say that I sold it to a young man
and the car is getting abused. I saw some chips and scratches on it. AMC
made awesome engines.

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.
Wheel standing 1970 AMX - qualifying run #2
Second run. This run was actually better on the incremental times with a
1.38 60' time until I got past the 1000' mark. Apparently the carb float
came loose and fell into the bowl (Autolite carb). This is an NHRA SS/H AMX
and is a 390 AMC by MACH Development with a Jerico 4-speed using and
Advanced Clutch. Note where the 60' lights are.
