Minneapolis '73 AMC Javelin SST Was Born In Wisconsin, Doesn't Worry…

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Here's an AMC that's beaten the odds and survives on the snowy Minnesota street! » 12/13/09 1:00pm 12/13/09 1:00pm

PCH, George W. Romney Edition: 1970 or 1973 AMX?

For reasons that no doubt made sense at the time, the utterly hopeless Cord triumphed over the absolutely impossible Lamborghini in yesterday's Choose Your Eternity poll. After those two high-ticket machines, I figured we should take a look at some good old American muscle, from the Golden Age of V8-powered rear-drive … » 1/08/08 5:00pm 1/08/08 5:00pm

Junkyard Javelin

During the same junkyard expedition that brought us the Hippie Tercel, I ran across this forlorn '73 AMC Javelin.

Mr. Holland's Javelin: 1970 AMC Spot

Richard Dreyfuss isn't exactly the first actor we think of when we think "street tough." But apparently, AMC thought enough of him to give him a gig shilling for the '70 Javelin. Somehow, we think we think it's best to keep the Roger Penske/Mark Donahue Trans Am effort in our hearts as the pinnacle of AMC awesomeness …

We're Not In Love With Saturday's Children; We're In Love With the Misfit …

For Google's sake, that may well be the longest headline we've ever written. This blogging crap is ridiculously wordy work now and then. Regardless, here're a few shots of the Mopar/AMC contingent, who for reasons we do not know, didn't run in Saturday's Trans-Am session at the Monterey Historics. Which, frankly, was… » 8/23/06 9:30am 8/23/06 9:30am
