AMC 1980 AMX Spirit restoration
This is my 1980 AMC Spirit AMX. I finished restoring this car in July of 2002. This car has new paint,interior,transmission,3:73 rear and a built up 360 AMC engine producing close to 400 hp. I sold this car to finish my 86 Corvette. I miss it very much. This car had the Exhaust turned down towards the ground. It sounded real bassy like rolling thunder. This car was super fast. I took it to the 100th Rambler anniversary in Kenosha, WI in July 2002. With Group 19 AMC club. We also took it to Long Island, New York one summer, and I cruised my old neighborhood. Its sad to say that I sold it to a young man and the car is getting abused. I saw some chips and scratches on it. AMC made awesome engines.

1980 AMC Eagle drive
A drive along King Road going to the dog run with Sara. On the gravel lot I show a little of the 4-wheel drive system on the car. I hope to bring more and better acts of the car showing its capacities later on. No, it is not good in mud, these tires are useless in such, but aired down, the car goes very well in sand. Climbing hills is no difficulty either. It has a non-stock 2-speed New Process 229 full-time 4-wheel drive transfer case from a full size Jeep of 1987. This allows the car to present a few surprises to unsuspecting folks.

DIY: Short Shifter Install
Learn how to install a short shifter in this video. Even though I did this on my 240sx, its pretty much the same principle for most rear wheel drive cars.
A short throw shifter gives you less space between shifts, which means quicker shifts. Its an inexpensive mod that will give your car a whole new feel.
I used an ISIS shifter from Enjukuracing.com
