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!
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 SC/Rambler/Hurst Hardtop (2) RWB DaySpdwy033012
Not only is it rare to see one of these Scramblers, but to see two at the
same time is a real treat! 390 cubic inch engine with manual transmission
would really give these cars real scoot! AMC was very aware of the youth
market, as demonstrated by their Javelins and AMXs. This was another of
their performance cars...it had been referred to earlier as the Rambler
American compact. The red, white and blue color combinations is a stroke
of genius..what colors better exemplify "American"?

1961 Rambler Preview
For 1961 the American line added a four-door station wagon, as well as a
two-door convertible for the first time since 1954. It featured a
power-operated folding top with roll-down door glass, rather than the fixed
side-window frames of the original design. Passenger room increased
from five to six.
The straight six was modernized with an overhead-valve cylinder head for
higher-grade models, but the base cars continued with the flathead engine.
American Motors built a new assembly plant in Brampton, Ontario, Canada,
for the production of Rambler Americans as well as the larger Rambler
The genesis of the Rambler American began when AMC President George W.
Romney saw that AMC was in need of a small compact during the Recession of
1958. Romney also wanted to build momentum in AMC's challenge to the
domestic Big Three automakers by adding a third car line.
The automotive press loved them. Tom McCahill wrote in Mechanix
Illustrated, "There isn't a better buy in the world today." He continued,
"The Rambler American ... is an ideal-size small family car... It will give
up to 30 miles on a gallon of gas (and more, with overdrive) and will
outperform any imported sedan selling for under $2,000 except in the
cornering department... It is by far the most rattle-and-squeak-free 1958
Detroit product I've driven-and I've driven them all!"
2013 Chevy Equinox takes on the desert
Visit Font's Point in the Anza Borrego Desert State Park, near San Diego,
in a 2013 V6 AWD Chevrolet Equinox. Font's Point is a spectacular vista
overlooking the rugged Borrego Badlands. The Equinox makes the drive over
shifting sands to reach the view point. By the way, as pointed out by a
viewer, this is the LTZ model.
1978 AMX Sport Compact Car
The AMC Concord is a compact and economical car by 1970s US standards,
produced by the American Motors Corporation for the 1978 through 1983 model
years. The Concord replaced the AMC Hornet and to some extent the mid-size
AMC Matador, discontinued after 1978 in a market moving to downsized
automobiles. Offered in four-door sedan, two-door coupé (through 1982),
three-door hatchback (through 1979) and four-door station wagon forms, AMC
sought to give its, by this time venerable, compact car an image of luxury,
class, and value. The Concord was AMC's volume seller from the time it
The car was available as a sports-oriented two-door hatchback AMX model
without any "Concord" badges or identification for the 1978 model year, as
well as the Concord Sundancer convertible during 1981 and 1982, an
authorized conversion sold through AMC dealers.
