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
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,
