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.

1973 AMC Javelin AMX
When is a Javelin also an AMX? Jack Boughton explains how he came to own
this unique 401 cubic inch Javelin/AMX and what he's done since the day he
drove it off the lot when it was brand new. Lance Lambert, host of
television's "Vintage Vehicle Show", learns why, among other things, the
interior of Jack's car is so unusual. More information about the "Vintage
Vehicle Show" can be found at www.vintagevehicletv.com.

1969 AMC AMX 390 V8 Four Speed Muscle Car
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1969 AMC AMX. The
exterior is coated in a gloss red, with silver stripes running the length
of the vehicle. The interior is a rare option Platinum vinyl. Under the
hood, you will find a 390 CID V8 backed by 4-spd manual transmission. The
engine offers a mild camshaft, forged pistons, roller rockers, and has been
balanced. The rear end is a 3.54 posi grip. Other options include: AM/FM
Radio, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Tilt Wheel, Seat Belts, Vinyl
Interior, and Radial Tires. There were no short cuts taken on this
restoration. Many of the parts used are NOS and the mileage since rebuild
is just 325 miles! Thanks for taking a look!

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.
AMC Javelin burnout
72 AMC Javelin with a freshly built 401 revs quickly and takes off
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
