Wheel standing 1970 AMX - qualifying run #2

Second run. This run was actually better on the incremental times with a 1.38 60' time until I got past the 1000' mark. Apparently the carb float came loose and fell into the bowl (Autolite carb). This is an NHRA SS/H AMX and is a 390 AMC by MACH Development with a Jerico 4-speed using and Advanced Clutch. Note where the 60' lights are.

Wheel standing 1970 AMX - Qualifying run #3
1970 AMC AMX. NHRA SS/H. Still fighting the launch that goes left. Came down really hard on this pass. I had the AFCO double adjustable shocks on full firm on extentsion & compresion on front shocks. 60' time was again 1.38 and if you look at the 60' light beam you'll see the rear tires are tripping the lights. This is a lot of fun, but it's going in for a 4-link next week! I was low on battery voltage on this run and it slowed up from it's best of 10.10 @ 132.21.

The interior is a rare option Platinum vinyl. Under the hood, you will find a 390 CID V8 backed by 4-spd manual transmission.

Feels like a Porsche? Yes. 1969 AMX - /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.

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.

Wheel standing 1970 AMX - Eliminations and sparks flying
Round 1 of eliminations. Car was launched at a low 6200 RPM. Still a 1.38 60' time. Nothing more consistant than Advanced Clutches (see the web site). Veered off to the left too much. Let off the gas for the 1st time ever and came down with a big thunk. Shut the engine off just to make sure no oil pan damage (there was none). Sparks are crossmember hitting concrete. Slight bevel on leading edge of oil pan. If you ever want a killer engine, go to MACH Development (see their web page). NHRA Best Appearing @ 2006 Pacific SportsNationals (Fontana, CA). Now going to the shop for a back-half and 4-link to tame it down some. Hope you enjoyed the video's!
