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!

24 Hours of LeMons People's Curse
This is the People's Curse (Car #45) for the 24 Hours of LeMons Arse-a-Palooza 2008 at Thunderhill Raceway in Willows, CA. Other teams voted to have this car semi-destroyed. Jay Lamm asked the excavator operator to go easy on it - many may have voted simply because it was fast. The car DID return to the race an hour or two after... and was even faster with less weight! Great work team #45. -Kris Team PorcuBimmer





79 AMC Concord DL 2wd Eagle Sedan 258 Test Drive VAM American Classic Car Review
79 AMC Concord DL Sedan 258 Straight 6 Start Up & Test Drive VAM American Classic Car Review http://www.1OwnerCarGuy.com This is a very nice 79 AMC. This car shows 40K on the odometer and it is really easy to believe the miles. The car has the Straight 6 258 engine which is a nice torque engine and gets good gas mileage. The car fires right up and runs, drives, and shifts great. It looks to be all original on the paint and the paint is very nice with a nice shine to it. It has a vinyl half top but it was bad so I took it off and painted it. This car has a lot of chrome on it and it really looks nice. It has all the factory wheel covers and is completely factory. The interior is very nice and shows very little wear. Someone really took care of this car over the years. It has a lot of the options the upgraded models came with. You will be hard pressed to find a nice one.

Drive Test 1971 AMC SC/360 Hornet Eddie Stakes
Memorial Day 2012. Zero miles on 1971 AMC SC/360 Hornet. Brought the car out for Memorial Day to honor our veterans who have proudly served this great country & nothing gets stares, cell phone photos, waves & thumbs up like a red, white and blue AMERICAN Motors car. I still need to put in sill plates, the radio, detail engine bay, and install the ram air pieces taken off several years ago to reproduce of which only the flapper door was made. Also found out the small gas tube filler hose has crack, so while putting 93 octane at Exxon at Wilcrest & I-10 gas was dripping out and found this out, so will have to change this quickly. Has several nice comments at the Exxon from fellow Houston motorists including the clerk who came out for a look at this busy store. While driving off a guy in Uncle Sam getup for the Big Tree place at Wycliffe @ I-10 put down his large sign to give son Noah & me two thumbs up when we passed! The short film was taken at Brittmoore & I-10 at the old Roomstore, now Doomstore (it's last 2 days this week). I will have to slightly adjust the timing and Holley 750 on this also as noticed it bogged slightly in 3rd. The car is original 360cid/280hp, Hurst 4 speed, electric wipers, power steering, and 3:91 Twin Grip. It is the ONLY known Medium Blue Metallic 71 SC/360 know to exist out of 112 I have documented with the SC/360 Registry in 12 years. http://www.planethoustonamx.com/sc360/sc_registry.htm Total production for AMC's rarest muscle car was 784 units, a 1/3rd of production of the Rebel Machine and 1/2 of production of SC/Rambler. Fun car to drive, very light, about 3000 lbs.

1970 AMC Hornet SST
My 1970 AMC Hornet SST. Only paid $700. It has had a few upgrades done to it by previous owners. The engine is now a 232 from a 78 Concord. It had a Carter BBD 2 BBL from a 258. The transmission is now a Torque-Command from a 72 Gremlin. The front disk brakes and rear end are from a 80 Spirit. The 100MPH speedo gauge is from a Gremlin and the Fuel Economy Meter is from a 75/77 Hornet/Gremlin. It may not be a matching number car anymore but its still a great ride and still all AMC.
