AMCs Converge at Cactus Classic

The 21st annual event brought out the red/white/blue


Did you know Phoenix is an AMC town? One of the most famous American Motors dealerships in America was Randall Rambler, the place that dropped 401s into Gremlins and created a legend. Many other AMC legends converged at the Martin Auto Museum in northwest Phoenix to display their automotive patriotism.

This is the Playboy Playmate 1968 AMX.

Of course, Javelins and AMXs made a strong showing, but we also had Rambler Americans and several Jeep products. No Rebels and Ambassadors? Last year we caught a few, but we didn’t see any this year. Ditto Nash and Hudson products. Nonetheless, enjoy the pics of the cars from Kenosha.

Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in metropolitan Phoenix.
