Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 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.
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!

stunning 1972 AMC Javelin SST for sale include: A/C, AM/FM radio, power
brakes and power steering, tilt wheel, seat belts, cloth interior, and

the EPA regulations, the Javelins equipped with the 401 V8 were propelling
down the quarter mile in the mid-14 second range at about 93mph! Even the
Alabama State Police ordered approximately 100 of these as pursuit
vehicles, equipped with a special ‘fleet service’ version of AMC’s
new 401CID 4-barrel V8 and backed by a Borg-Warner automatic transmission.
An Alabama State Police Javelin was ever outrun during a pursuit and the

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.
