About claysjavelin’s Garage


About me and my passion for cars

I have had a passion for cars since I was 14 years.
I have had most of the favorites. Like 55, 56 and 57 Chevys.
I have had a Henry J big block Chevy power, set up for racing at the drag strip.
I got interested in AMC's when I had a 73 Gremlin. It was t-boned and I sold off the parts.
I was without an AMC until my wife went out and bought me the Javelin AMX I now own. I have had it for 28 years.

My first car

1955 Ford
4 door, 292 automatic

Car I wish I still had

I wish I still had my Henry J.
Like an idot I sold it.

Hey, Love the Javelin.
