FINALLY got the car on track. Ran with Track Masters Racing in the "staff" group. Have a nice list of things that need to be improved on the car but it basically worked. Ran all 6 sessions and had a blast! More at: http://asifnyc.com specs: Control Freak front suspension, AMC 360 engine (450hp), Ford 9" floater rear, Wilwood brakes, Astro Performance A5 transmission

1970 AMC Javelin SST abandoned 30 years, first look.
Here is a car my brother just bought. He has been looking to speculate on
old cars and look what he found....
This is a '70 AMC Javelin SST, possible Mark Donahue edition. The owners
widow allegedly has a stack of paperwork to this car so we are crossing our
fingers there is something to document a real Donahue car.
This is Tijuana Tan metallic, 360-4V, Safe Command power brakes and power
It is very original and unmolested. The story goes is the original owners
bought it, drove it until sometime in 1979 when the trans went out. The
husband started to pull the trans out, but passed away suddenly.
His widow left this car and 3 others where they sat for the next 31 years.
They literally had to spend a week cutting down the forest to get them out.
This Javelin wears vintage Cragar-type wheels, has the requisite add-on 8
track player also!
I will get more video and photos as we progress through clean-up and
mechanical evaluation of this AMC.
Please comment and subscribe, thanks!
PS the SST sold 2 months after this video and the Plymouth has long since
been restored and turned into a daily driver.
Dream Car Garage Featuring Control Freak Suspensions
Making of a 1968 Bullit Mustang with coil over suspension all
around. Transforms from suspension dog to true stallion. The guys at
Dream Car Garage use the Control Freak Suspensions front tubular control
arms and coil over conversion kit. On the rear they install the Control
Freak 4-Link coil over kit. Very bad-ass combination. Visit Control Freak
Suspensions on the web at www.FreakRide.com
Pro-touring Poster Child: 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.

1970 AMC Rebel The Machine Hardtop Wht NSmyr071412
I did video The Machine before, but I couldn't pass up videoing it again.
AMC really knew how to appeal with, what at first glance, might be
ordinary....a white car....but those styling touches and the red, white and
blue striping set it apart! And the name, The Machine, works real magic!
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!
