1968 AMC Rebel SST
Here's a rare survivor car from the late 60's! It's a '68 AMC Rebel with a
290ci Typhoon V8 and a 3 speed "Shift Command" automatic transmission! It
is also equipped with power steering, has a new battery, and an electric
fuel pump! The paint and interior are factory and are both in very good
condition. The interior consists of vinyl seating with a fold down arm rest
in front, an unmolested dashboard, a still working AM radio, and the
odometer reads only 72k miles! The car has 15 inch Ultra polished aluminum
wheels with 245/60/15 Grand Am Radials, and also included are the factory
hub caps! This Rebel has new shocks, a clean solid trunk, tons of nice
stainless trim, nice glass and chrome, flush mounted paddle style door
handles, and drives extremely well!

AMC Rebel Machine
Muscle car fans: this is required viewing.
AMC fans: here's some incredible footage that you never knew existed.
Here comes 49 seconds of the only known factory film footage of the 1970
AMC Rebel Machine. The outrageous red/white/blue monster that is as much
an icon of muscle car excess as the Dodge Daytona/Plymouth Super Bee.
I bought this 35mm film several years ago off of eBay. The vendor had
purchased it from a film company that had gone out of business. That
company had been storing films and bits of film for the past 40 years or
The rest of this film is the entire AMC product introduction film for 1970.
It's one of only two 35mm film prints that I own. I'm sorry that I don't
have the soundtrack. Back in the day, films were assembled from pieces.
The other piece to this film would have been a 35mm soundtrack. (That's
all. Just the sound.) These two pieces would have been mixed together to
create a master. Maybe the soundtrack will surface someday, and maybe
we'll get to hear what AMC had to say about this classic, low-volume muscle
Until then, enjoy shots of the Rebel Machine doing donuts on a live
airstrip! (I can only imagine what Homeland Security would do to this guy.
I'm sure they have some room at Guantanamo.)
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.

The Big Rambler/AMC/Jeep Show, Kenosha, WI, 2007
On Saturday, July 28, 2007, four days after my leg cast came off, I was up
shooting video at the Rambler/AMC/Jeep show in Kenosha, WI, the largest
such show in the country.
Felt real good to be back on two legs again.
And before you start writing in with blood in your eyes, yes, I know the
Alliance pictured isn't an '83; convertibles didn't come out till a few
years later. This one was the only one at the show. Encores, Medallions,
Sportwagons and Premiers weren't there at all. You owners of '83 to '88
Renault cars should be better represented at next year's show; they were as
much a part of the AMC story as the Rambler and the Jeep.
