Tom is a lifelong gearhead and a dedicated AMC aficionado. He has owned AMCs continuously
since 1972. He bought his first Rebel Machine from a local radio station for $150 when he was 16, and has never looked back.
Today the "AMC Crib" is a 3500 sq ft space dedicated to all things AMC, and holds:
5 1970 Rebel Machines (1 restored, 2 in progress, 1 major project, 1 organ donor)
1970 Mark Donohue
1970 AMX (street/strip)
1969 AMX drag car (8 second doorslammer)
1969 SS/AMX clone (the Kenosha Killer)
1976 Gremlin drag car (street legal)
1971 Javelin (401 4 speed, soon to be RWB 71 Trans AM Javelin clone)
1969 SC/Ramblers (both projects)
1970 BBG Javelin (project)
1972 Gremlin (project, may be for sale soon)
When not messing around in the garage, Tom enjoys blowing things up.

Evan (Fastest kid on the planet)
Evan has been a familiar face at AMC shows
and races for many years. His knowledge of cars is extensive, and he has experience in everything from checking tire
pressure to pulling a motor. Evan has his sights set on the 1970 BBG Javelin (360 4 spd) as his first car, so that's
one of our projects for this winter. He made the move from pit crew to driver in 2006, jumping behind the wheel of a
Jr. Dragster. He immediately showed the old guys how it should be done by winning 5 straight rounds and the winner's
trophy in his very first race.
