hmm... i go to mexico every year (just Puerto Vallarta, with all the other old gringo folks). my spanish is barely Restaurant Spanish. i suppose i should think about how to fetch some manifolds back to the US. would have to be clean-ish and go home as checked baggage. and get through customs.

I didn't know until today that Rod&Custom went out of print in 2014.
What a shame,  probable my favorite car magazine back in the 70's and 80's.

I've got hundreds of old car magazines,  when I say old I mean back into the 60's and even have a few from the 50's.

But when I put a page on a printer I usually get a picture so dark and fuzzy you can't make out a lot of it.

Tyrodtom,

Tha article I posted is from May 1969.

Armando Lobato was not the only VAM engineeer behind the VAM Go Pack. Pilots and engineers Javier Elenes and Germán Revilla also stand out in its conception among others, it might be that one was behind every different VAM four-barrel intake.

In this regard, there are three VAM Go Pack intake designs so far.

Do you know anyone that could scan the Rod and Custom articles for you?

If you do, he/she can send them to my email and I can post them here for everyone to see.

I would like to see a review of the VAM Go Pack from the American point of view, since the norm at the time in the US was all-V8 only in regards to performance.

From my friend in Mexico... Notice the writing on the left side... while they are not exactly indentical... they seem to be very very similar... hope this helps... 


This is a new one for me.

That's the 1963-1973 VAM logo on the lower left corner.

The carburetors used in the VAM Go Pack, at least that I know of, are the Carter AFB and AVS four-barrel models, rated from 650 to 800 CFMs.

Good luck finding one of those even in Mexico. I am also there every year and belong to the local AMC Club. There are several cars with 4 barrels, however they are all using a manifold locally made but aftermarket, I forget the brand name

Most of the VAM cars were sold in the Mexico City area and were tu ed for higher altitudes. Not so likely to find them in coastal areas.
