  1. All AMCs are my favorite, they were cars with character. Not like today , every car looks alike, WHAT is this SUV car disease that we have today all about!???

  2. Big AMC fan. It amazes me what cash strapped AMC was able to do with such limited resources. My #1 pick is the 1968 to ’70 Javelin. I’ve loved these since I saw a ’68 when they were first introduced. The styling of these early Javelins was well proportioned, clean, and uniquely attractive. And an honorable mention for the Hornet hatchback introduced in 1973. AMC took a boxy Hornet and made it a slick looking car.

  3. the Javelin, my uncle drove a red white and blue javelin in nascar for a short time when they were trying to get into raceing

  4. In 1972 I bought a dark Admiral blue Javelin AMX. It had a white split vinyl top, white hood “T” stripe, and white vinyl seats. It was a Rally Pac 401 ci car loaded with 15″ wheels and E60 tires. It was quick off the line and cornered like it was on rails. Four years later married and with children in the near future, it was traded for a more economical car. Now, 50 years later, I sure wish I had it back!

  5. My 1968front ended. And 1970 bachhslf build bye Herman. Lewis. From Becky. WV. I’m 3 owner of backup SS/C. AMX. One of one. With Fred brewery Heads And B1 1 intake cut 4 ways to make it fit heads on 420ci plus I have lates heads from Fred brewery. It 48cc chamber will be going on 500cubic in all power AMC. In AMX. Who know 1,200 hp one Dominator.
