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.

1969 AMC AMX: AMXess -- /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.
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!

With a jumping bass and off-beat syncopation, this is straight from
Memphis' Beale Street. The Hammond organ and electric guitar play together
as longtime friends, while the melody changes hands from guitar to organ to
electric piano. 011

Turbocharged LS V8 AMC Gremlin visits LV Cars and Coffee
First time we heard about Lehigh Valley Cars and Coffee, so we decided to
take a trip down. First the drag radials rubbed, so we put more air in the
air shocks. Then the air shocks exploded, so we put the small tires back
on. We eventually made it and ruined the atmosphere of the meet.
