One of the really cool set of pics they have there is a custom Matador X - Check this out:

For some reason I can't see the pics but I did see the name Ted Marshall. He is the father of an old school mate of mine, TJ. I remember TJ being dropped off by his dad in the Matador when we were in 8th grade(1982). It was black then. His dad used to work for Zimmer Motorcars where they made custom cars.

All of them. I don't see the pics, just empty boxes. For some reason I have to right click and choose view image to see them. Probably something on my end. My lap top is on it's last leg.

Not sure if I like that Matador. I'm not a huge fan of them to begin with, but the wheels seem way to far tucked into wheel wells....or maybe they are just too small. The proportions just aren't right.

I remember seeing that car when i drove my '84 eagle sedan down to the 2006 AMO nats in Dayton Ohio. The first time i saw it was day one of the show while cruising from our motel to the park. We caught up with it on the interstate and followed it there. I thought it was cool looking from the beginning. Then once i found out it was AMC powered and everything i thought it was way cool!!!
