Thanks zed for being a loser!

If only some other less retarded person fucked your ugly prostitute mother we wouldn't be enjoying your shitposts.

Re: American Motors Cars

NICE - have the 3 speed or Flash-o-matic transmission on that ???

Re: American Motors Cars

I had a '75 CJ-5 for several years. It was great with the stock 304 and three-speed. Until I removed those & added too much horsepower for the stock drivetrain and suspension to handle. I pretty much twisted everything, including the frame, and passed it off to someone else for further modifications. But it wheelied great with a welded rear end and bald 36x14.50 Swampers. Damn I miss that Jeep. It got me more tail than any rig I've owned. Including my wife. I picked her up in it for our first date. I had the top off, in February, on the Tacoma waterfront.

I had a pacer in the back yard one summer in the late 90's. filled it with water and added fish. lasted through a few backyard keggers. It was the coolest fucking lawn ornament for a few weeks until it went algae green moldy and the fish swelled to frightening little popeyed potbellied scaley horrors. then it was less cool. carted it off to the junkman. don't miss it.(edited)

Re: American Motors Cars

Never owner but always a lover.

In college we entered a soapbox derby with some friends, our car was called the gremlin and was supposed to have decals of the critters from the movie gremlins. Priceless their faces when they realized I decked it our with stencils of AMC gremlins

My father had a low mi AMC green hornet he garaged and kept immaculate and basically had same design 6 cylinder engine like that they put in the Jeep Cherokee and was quite Peppy,

Man that thing drove nice, I was set to buy it off of him but he traded it in on a 82 Chevy blazer he ordered then he got sick with diabetes and had to give up the blazer a few months after he took delivery of it because he needed the money and lost a lot of money on the deal, he should’ve just kept the hornet

Re: American Motors Cars

Coming of age in the 70's and 80's during a time when social media and cell phones could not have even been imagined, your car was not just your ticket to freedom but was very much part of you. In 1978 at 14, I walked into a car lot and saw this beautiful 71 hot rod Nova with Craiger SS wheels, an LT1 engine and chrome side pipes for $1800. I convince the small rural used car dealer to let me put a few hundred bucks down on it to hold it. I dont think he realized that I was only 14 and it would take 2 years to fully pay for it and to legally drive it...but somehow on my 16th birthday, along with my mom and final few hundred dollars, I drove my dream car off the lot and got to enjoy an unchallenged superiority for that summer. But my local reign soon came to an end when the "rich kid" in town showed up with a Gremlin and its Super charged 401 sticking up out of the hood. He actually drove around town with wheelie bars attached. I was able to witness that car bring the front end off the ground effortlessly in the high school parking lot on the first day back to school in the fall of 1980...

I have owned many beautiful muscle cars over the years now but the two cars that I had always wanted but never owned were the 302 Boss Mach 1 Mustang and the AMC AMX with the 390 4 Speed.(edited)

Re: American Motors Cars

younger guy (late teens, early 20s if that) at a local gas station has a really nice AMX he works on in between fill-ups

kinda gives me hope that some of the kids still like the old stuff

Whats sad is even if younger guys want to work on older cars they will have a hard time do to the age/condition, and cost of these things. Your hard pressed finding a 71 Nova for $1800 these days thats anything more than a rotted shell.

Re: American Motors Cars

never owned an AMC, but im currently building a '30 model a rat rod. looking to do a single turbo 1jz, piss off all the old heads ya know (elbow nudge, ha - ha)

im 26. love old stuff. daily a '91 S10 2.5 iron duke or my '93 samurai. everything i have is historic haha

was driving a '62 merc meteor S33 in high school but sold it for this model a.

sadly it's a dying breed... my generation just wants to stay glued on their phones and have everything handed to them. Carburator?? i barely know her. if it doesnt get IG likes most dont want anything to do with it. makes me sick

would love to get an AMC some day, not enough time to collect em all though haha

LOL! Blue smoke indeed! Not many AMCs survived...……...just not worth the troubles.

Re: American Motors Cars

In 1984 or 85, my older sister bought a brand new Jeep CJ8 Scrambler base model with the AMC 150ci 4 cylinder engine and manual tranny. We didn't get along very well but she asked if I could go with her when she bought it to drive it out of the Jeep dealer lot. She was just learning to drive a stick and did not want to embarrass herself or run into something before she even got it home. I of course obliged and can vividly remember just how cool that thing drove as we were leaving. Its torquey and boucey feel was really fricken awesome as I shifted gears. As we made it out of the "cities" and got onto the less busy country road, she instructed me to pull over and get into the passenger seat. She then said I hope you enjoyed driving it because that is the last time you ever will....and she was not kidding.

Joke was on her though! About 10 years ago my brother and I were riding dirt bikes out at her farm and I went into her barn to look for something. There was a tarped vehicle under many years of pigeon crap and dust. As I pulled back the tarp out of curiosity, there it was! Still looking good and still with the pony blanket seat covers that she put on those bucket seats when it was new. After a little begging, she agreed to sell it to me.

Though it had not been on the road for years. I towed it home and with only a hour or two of cleaning up the gas and ignition system (just like a old moped) that old AMC engine came to life..

Re: American Motors Cars

The AMC - CJ era is my favorite of the jeeps. Although they had very little "Jeep" in them, at least they were better than the modern day Chryslers.

We had a 1985 amc Jeep Cherokee we bought in 1987. We were second owners, truck had 50k miles. In one year the rear doors rusted through, the stick shifter sheared off simply when shifting into reverse. The trans second gear needed rebuild. A part in the trans was made by Peugeot, and none were in the u.s. three months to get that part. Carb fell into pieces as the bolts wore out their threads. The rear wheel with brake passed me on a mountain exit in the poconos, and rolled town a cliff. The blaupunkt radio ceased to work.

In that year, it lived at the repair shop for probably five months on and off.

What a horrid piece of shit.

My boss used to Offroad his AMC Jeep with the 304 V8 and every time something would break! the last time the whole rear axle came out on the right side, he saw right wheel sticking out a foot and then whole thing snapped!

He had to get winched and towed out of there costing him a bunch of money plus costing a bunch of money to get his AMC jeep fixed, I was loving it because my old boss wasn't a very nice person ha ha ,

Re: American Motors Cars

Anyone still want to get into some serious AMC carsor get your AMX/Javelin/Rebel back on the road then get hold of my old friend Eddie Stakes at http://www.planethoustonamx.com/ he has almost everything AMC/Rambler andwhathe does not have he will hook you up with the person who does have it...

Re: American Motors Cars

It's like going back into the nineties! Viewing AMC info while browsing a geocities style web page......Sweet sweet nostalgia upon more nostalgia!

Re: American Motors Cars

Never had much of an interest in amc cars although it seems those that do are fanatical about it similar to mopar guys. I like the rebal machines and amx cars though.
