West Coast All AMC Show with AMX III
Lance Lambert travels to Irwindale, CA to an AMC show and an in-depth look
at the AMX III. This short excerpt from a longer program shows some of the
cars and the AMX 3. Music by Susan and the Surftones. More info at
Those Crazy Amazing Mckenzie Brothers. Bittersweet Orange 1970 AMX. 3 April 2010.
The 1970 AMX you see here was originally owned by Greg White, of Parkridge
NJ. who was friends with Ken Rose of Lakeview Rambler, the Westwood NJ AMC
dealership. Ken campaigned the very first SS/AMX car manufactured "American
Image", serial number ONE! Circa 1972, the drivetrain from the "Americn
Image" car was removed and re-installed into the car you see here. The car
was then street raced by Greg until being purchased by the current owners
brother Bill Mckenzie in 1975. The car has been in the family since and is
currently owned by Bill's brother Glen Mckenzie of Highland Mills, NY. At
this time Glen is rebuilding the transplanted drivetrain and building a
replica SS/AMX cross ram 390 motor to reinstall back into the car.
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.

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
Here is the link to the day I picked up my new ride,
1968 AMC AMX Burnout
My 68 AMX at a friends AMC car party. I took it easy on the tires because
they were new. The next year it was better and I will post it soon
Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!
