AMC Concord Crusher-Bound, In Spite Of Landau Roof

With the optional VW/Audi four-cylinder (same engine as the one in the Porsche 924) under the hood and its snazzy faux-convertible landau roof, you'd think this '78 Concord would be worth keeping on the road. Apparently not, as I spotted this very solid-looking AMC being prepared for a stint on the stands at a local… » 6/26/08 2:00pm 6/26/08 2:00pm

PCH, Turbo Malaise Edition: Saab 99 Turbo or Turbo Trans Am Indy Pace…

It's pretty tough to beat the most menacing assemblage of Lucas Electrics ever put in one $150,000 package when it comes to Hell Projects, and even a horrifically hooned Skyline GT-R couldn't come close to the Lagonda in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll.

Cheryl Tiegs Joins The Cat Set In Her '78 Cougar XR-7

While Farrah Fawcett merely allowed a cougar to sit on the roof of her car in her '75 Cougar ad, Cheryl Tiegs lets a mountain lion ride shotgun in her '78 (equipped with the hyper-Malaise "Midnight Chamois" option package). Not only that, but her hair totally out-feathers Farrah's, and her haunted mansion gives her… » 4/30/08 1:00pm 4/30/08 1:00pm
