us to get rid of it........
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!
Speedholes AMC Marlin at the BFE Grand Prix High Plains Raceway 6/2/13 Aaron driving
Racing the 454 powered Marlin at HPR during the 2013 24 hrs of lemons BFE
GP. Just a few laps of the car doing its thing. I let a lot of faster cars in other classes pass on by.
Starts out slow so I can bed in some new brakes. I pick it up a bunch
after a few laps. Like the big block chevy singing? Turn it up!! Ran the
race on 400 treadwear tires, pilfered from one of our drivers moms VW
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.
1963 AMC Rambler American 440h startup and walkaround
Bought this as a project in 2009. Cosmetics were well preserved but the
195.6 engine needed work and the transmission was trashed. Found a NOS
Borg/Warner T-96 with overdrive from AMCrazy that allowed me to get the car
back on the road. 63k orig miles.
Just a quick start and walk around. I'll post a video of a drive in it
195.6 ci OHV 2bbl, T-96 3 speed and optional R10 overdrive. Not fast, but
fun to drive.
Brian's AMC Bone Yard
We went out to Sask., to grab as many AMC parts as we could before the
crusher comes for all these cars. Here's a an overview of the yard.
These cars are probably gonna be gone within a week or so.

AMC Rambler American Update
I went over to Vance's house to check the progress on the Rambler. He has
the turbo unit roughted in and the V8
401 is in place. The color sanding and buffing has been started.
Hopefully the car will be completed this summer.
