AMC Javelin
1971 American Motors Javelin vintage test drive video. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----AMC Javelin, second generation design (1971 -1974). The Javelin was restyled for 1971 and like the Mustang of the period, became bigger in most every dimension. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----Today the AMC Javein is fast gaining a following for being unique and and as a muscle car for those who dare to be different. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- -----AMC was purchased by Chrysler Corporation in 1987 in order to acquire the Jeep brand, which AMC had owned since 1970. With the purchase by Chrysler, AMC became the last independent and thsu ended a long history dating back to 1902. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----- AMC will live on in the cars that remain and which are cherised by those who dare to break away from the pack.

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.

1974 Hornet Hatchback by AMC
Hi fellow youtubers! So there is a bit of a story here regarding this nice example of a 1974 AMC Hornet. I used to own this car from 2002-2007. Then, I sold it. I regretted doing that and so this year, I decided I was going to ask the person I sold it to in 2007 if I could buy it back. I had asked that person to contact me if they ever decided to sell it to offer me the first right of refusal to buy it back. I even called this person every year since 2007 to touch base with them, see how they were doing and if they were enjoying the car. I found out in Oct 2011, when I made my call to this person to inquire about buying it back, that they had sold it in JUNE of 2011!! They had never even contacted me to tell me that they were going to sell it. (Even though I had provided them with all of my still valid contact info that was still with all the paperwork when I bought the car back!) I was certainly "bummed" (that's me being "nice") to say the least, but I tracked down the car from the June sale and then found out it had been sold yet again in only a six month timeframe! Out of desperation, I put an add out on craigslist with a photo of the car and a nice gentleman called me back who knew the new current owner! (That's like winning the LOTTERY!! WOW!) So, true to his word, the nice gentleman who called me in response to my craigslist add, contacted the current owner and gave them my number. The current owner actually called me back and I explained to them that I used to own this car and would love the chance to buy it back. They thought about it for a day and decided they would sell it back to me. I was elated!! I felt so lucky to have been able to just find it again, let alone buy it back! To learn that it was still in great shape after five years of not owning it was just MORE icing on the cake!! So, I hopped on a flight to Ohio and drove this car all the way back to Palm Springs, CA where I live! (I had it gone through thoroughly by a mechanic first!) Even so, the trip was not without incident (I broke down in Stroud, OK,). Again, lady luck was on my side and I was able to get it repaired and made it the rest of the way home without incident! That is why I mention in the video about being glad to get it back and what I'm referencing when I say "what I went through to get it back!" This car was originally an Arizona car and although it is not a Hornet X, it is a very well optioned out Hornet. It's original factory color was Sienna Orange as evidenced under the hood. Before I bought it (the first time) in 2002, it had already been re-painted to it's current Grasshopper Green (paint code C-8) color. I think the color suits the car nicely, (and it's great to say I have a "Green Hornet"), but I would love to re-paint the under hood area to match the rest of the car. Even though this car only shows about 47,000 miles on the clock, I would like to slowly restore it and have all the systems of the car gone through since she is 38 years old. Other than the re-paint and new belts, hoses and tires, etc, the rest is pretty much all stock and original. I think the design and body lines of this car have withstood the test of time well. She certainly draws lots of attention and thumbs up from folks everywhere. I had a lady once follow me for ten miles just to ask me what kind of car it was! It's fun to take her out and enjoy the nostalgia that it brings out in people. People tell me all the time that they used to own one,or that they learned to drive in one, or even that theirs was a POS or that it was the worst car they ever owned!! LOL. It's all good! My Mom had a four door Hornet that we tooled around in when I was a small kid, so for me, I love the good memories that it brings back to me of that period of time in my life. The music was fun and times were simpler. This little two door hatchback, with it's V-8 and A/C, bucket seats, "hidden compartment" and two rear view mirrors and optional alloy wheels makes this a very well optioned Hornet! The fact that it is also in very well maintained shape and it isn't a rust bucket and that it has NOT been abused makes it now even MORE rare! Before I bought it back, I looked long and hard for another Hornet hatchback and there were REAL SLIM pickings out there! Most were the in-line sixes (still an awesomely rugged and stout engine!), without A/C and most had bench seats. I can tell you that in the last five years, a LOT of these have been crushed or sold for scrap. So, maybe I didn't win the "mega-millons" lottery, but I sure feel like I "buzzed" in on the amazing chance to get her back! Thanks for your interest in my video and for reading my small book if you made it this far! Please feel free to leave a comment if you can behave and write something nice or meaningful. Peace and take care everyone!
