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.

Turbocharged LS V8 AMC Gremlin visits LV Cars and Coffee
First time we heard about Lehigh Valley Cars and Coffee, so we decided to
take a trip down. First the drag radials rubbed, so we put more air in the
air shocks. Then the air shocks exploded, so we put the small tires back
on. We eventually made it and ruined the atmosphere of the meet.
1965 AMC Rambler American 220 - 343 V8 - Fully Restored
I thought you'd like a look at this 1965 AMC Rambler American 220. You will
have a tough time finding a nicer Rambler than this one! It has been
upgraded to a 343CID V8 engine that has been bored .030 over and rebuilt
with all new parts only 2,000 miles ago. The Borg-Warner M12 automatic
transmission was rebuilt at the same time and is connected to a new Auburn
posi trac rear axle with 3.31 gears. New parts used in this two year old
restoration include cam, lifters, intake manifold, carburetor, aluminum
radiator, Flowmaster Exhaust, and
paint. Thanks for taking a look at it, I appreciate it!

Here is a video of Jim's outreach car for 2011. This is the first video of
him testing and tuning the engine after sitting all winter. It never saw
the track last year, but it will this year. Keep stopping by for updates!
We want to show that even Christians can do crazy things like demo derby
and racing and still spread the messages of the bible. And that its also
cool to be a Christian. This concept has taken off and we have been blessed
with a lot of support.

1969 AMC AMX: AMXess -- /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.
Tank Smashes Prius! Toyota Prius Battles AMC Gremlin & Suffers Crushing Defeat - Roadkill Ep. 17
On this episode of Roadkill, a tank squashes a Prius to smithereens! It
runs over that junk without even noticing. That's all you really need to
know about this episode of Roadkill, but if you jump straight to the tank
carnage you'll miss a bunch of cool stuff. Like when Freiburger and
Finnegan attempt a shootout between a Toyota Prius hybrid and a '75 AMC
Gremlin, trying to prove that the Gremmie is more of a greenie. It was all
fun and games until the Prius engine let go on the race track in a ball of
flame. Because Roadkill. After that, you've gotta see the guys once again
embrace their own Kryptonite: flat-towing. Yup, as it turns out, dragging a
dead Prius with a lighter, smaller Gremlin ends real badly. But in the end,
the Prius is wafer thin and the Gremlin's still on the road. Still want to
jump right to the tank smash? Don't be that guy.
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.
