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
I was low on battery voltage on this run and it slowed up from it's best of
10.10 @ 132.21.

1971 AMC Javelin AMX
I thought you'd like a look at this very nice 1971 AMC Javelin AMX. It's
powered by a 360 V8 with an aluminum intake and 4 bbl carb. The exterior
has been repainted and it features the flat black T style striping on the
hood. The interior is mostly original and features a nice set of gauges.
It's a nice looking car and something I don't come across very often. I
hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!

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.
Mark Donohue Javelin SST 1970 Stored in Trailer for over 20 years rescued unloaded forklifted
This is a video capturing the unloading of a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST
that was stored in a trailer for over 20 years. I was a little scared
filming this as I did not want to be posting a video of the destruction of
a 1970 Mark Donohue Javelin SST, personally I would have cut the roof off
the trailer and taken the car out with a helicopter, not to worry though as
there were 2 guys inside the trailer ready to catch the car if it fell or
tipped over ...but alas, as risky as it was, a success!!!! 2 other cars
were stored in the trailer as well, a super low mile Gremlin and I think it
was a 1979 AMX, but this was the treasure we were digging for!!!!!! On the
spoiler you will notice "401", this was originally a 390 and if I remember
right it is a Big Bad Orange, Orange or Green, it was not a bad re-paint
but the inside of the door jam reveals the original color, a nice find!!!
The car is in fantastic condition! This was not accomplished on the first
attempt, a few mis-fires happened but it all was okay in the end!
