Let's continue with the series of Car & Track reviews provided by Bajabusta. Hang on tight— plenty of tire squealing awaits!
While the penumbral financial backers of my DUI Telepresence Crown Victoria Figure Eight Racing series shovel rubles into briefcases, I'm moving on to an even bigger Greatest Racing Series Ever™: Last-man-standing road racing of the three great automotive Ambassadors!
As we get closer to the aptly-named B.F.E. Grand Prix 24 Hours of LeMons in Colorado next weekend, I decided to pay a visit to the team building the first-ever LeMons Marlin. All I can say is: Ho-lee shit!
NBC used to describe Thursday night as Must See TV because it was a ratings powerhouse. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe AMX is described as a Must See AMC, and its 390 V8 is stronger than any Thursday night.
The Allman Brothers espoused being a Ramblin' Man, Led Zeppelin needed to Ramble On, and in Ramble Tamble, CCR sang down the road I go. Today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe American may not run, but it's a Rambler too.
Today marks the 40th anniversary of the AMC Gremlin's unveil to the public. Later, everyone would realize the "first American-built import" with a base price of $1,900 was actually the funniest automotive April Fool's Day joke in history.
In spite of George C. Scott's endorsement, the Renault Alliance GTA failed to save American Motors. Few remain on the street today, but here's one that managed to evade The Crusher for more than 20 years.
With Renault's American partner, AMC, on the ropes in 1987, the lords of Kenosha decided that a factory-hot-rod version of the AMC-ified Renault 11 would be just the thing to fend off disaster.
Grandmas always make the best cookies and give the best hugs. And as Nice Price or Crack Pipe has discovered, they also have the best AMC Eagles.
Chrysler bought what was left of AMC in 1987, it's a little sad to see this woodgrain-bedecked Pre Cupholder Era SUV from 1986- back when SUVs were honest about their truckness- about to be crushed.
The BumperCam™ timelapse video of the Lamest Day LeMons BS Inspection was so much fun that I decided to set up the camera for yesterday's inspection in Texas.
If we ever get around to doing an Ultimate Engine Survivors list (to accompany the Survivor Cars list), this engine will surely be near the top. 47 years and counting!
Generally, describing a car as an appliance is pejorative, indicating it is dull as dishwater. Today Nice Price or Crack Pipe brings you a car that's totally not boring, but does look an awful lot like a refrigerator.
AMC may be long gone, and Fiat owns the Jeep brand nowadays, but classic AMC ads will never die!
