This is the very first time we actaully tried to start the engine after a complete rebuild of the AMC 360. We've been working on our first complete vehicle rebuild/restoration a Jeep CJ7. Getting closer and closer to driving her around. Had some trouble with the video cutting in and out, so I'll apologize in advance.
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.

THE REBUILD - The tear down and frame prep.wmv
This is the rebuild of my 1979 ford F250 which I am the soul owener I
bought the truck new in 79 it's original colors are candy apple red and
wimbildon white. The blue ford in the vidio is a donor truck, all that is
beening used is the frame. All the work so far is done mainly by me, except
the sandblasting and painting of the frame. Iam only at the rolling chassie
stage as of now, but be patient more to come , and by the way FORD stands
for FOR ONLY REAL DRIVERS. BE cool. Ps yes it is only 2 wheel drive, but
it has never let me down. There is another vidio called The rebirth. wmv,
which'.s shows the complete rolling chassis . Please Comment
1976 AMC Pacer Test Drive | AutoMoments Time Warp
The car world loves to hate the Pacer, but how many of those people have
actually driven one? After producing an entire documentary about the car,
we decided to test one for ourselves. While far from perfect, we found the
Pacer to not be nearly as bad as people claim. In fact, this strangle
little car is pretty cool in it's own weird sort of way.

Jeep CJ7 Laredo 304 V8 - New dual exhaust with MagnaFlow Mufflers
Got the new Exhaust installed today.
Consists of Hedman Hedders (3/8 in flange with 14 guage tubes), cross-over
pipe, and MagnaFlow mufflers. I've found that a new dual Exhaust system's sound will become deeper and
more mellow with time. It takes a while for it to get broken-in.
