If you had to pick a non-AMC car, what would it be?
« on: May 01, 2011, 04:30:41 PM »
So if you could afford anything, what would it be?

I would go with a 1966 Chrysler Imperial.  I just love the way they look, and are built like a tank...and the 440 cubic inch monster under the hood would roar!  ;D  It was also the star in the hit movie The Green Hornet!

If we're talking post-war Chrysler, I'd take a 1958 300D hardtop, 392 hemi and 4speed. This link is for the convertible.

I really don't know what I'd choose. But it would be one of the following: 70 Challenger, 69 Charger, first gen Mustang fastback, Buick GNX, 71 Cuda, diesel Chevette, first or second gen Corvette, 69 Camaro, 78 trans am, 81 turbo trans am, 63 Chrysler Turbine, Plymouth Duster, 70 Chevelle, 70 GTO, 72 Olds 442, Buick GSX, 66 GTO, 67 Cuda. I guess if I could have any, I'd choose the Chrysler Turbine because there are only 3 left that run.

If I had to choose a car knowing the way today's fuel prices are going,  I would choose the car/s I already have.  That would be a Mercedes Benz Diesel.  I run them on WVO (waste vegetable oil) that I get mostly for free.   Yes, having my first car (64 Chevelle SS) would be nice, but I probably would not be able to afford the gas to drive it!

If I had to pick (straight from the factory), it would be between these...
Buick Grand National
Ford Maverick Grabber
Ford Mustang Mach1

Or maybe the beast of them all...
Plymouth Superbird

But if I could pick from modified cars, then it would be...
Ford Maverick on CJ7 frame
 :rotfl:  I love this car. No wonder I like Eagles and want an SX/4... my love for Mavericks & fox-body Mustangs + 4 wheel drive = SX/4

A 56 to 60 Lincoln Continental or a 65 to 70 Pontiac Bonneville. They'd have to be Sunday Drivers, of course, they probably get about 12mpg.

I'd love to collect some of the early automatic and semi-automatic transmissions. I'm fascinated by them, especially the Duel-Range Hydro-matic.

This is my #1 non-AMC pick. Theres just something about the impractical that I can get enough of. And what could be less practical than the nearly 20 foot long 1975 cadillac fleetwood brougham executive limo with its 501ci V8 and a curb weight that exceeds many RV's.

'62 Plymouth Savoy. For the most part, a street legal factory racecar with a VIN  >:D. No heat, radio, or sunvisors, sound deadener. Lightweight body panels, 413 wedge, crossram intake, just a wolf in sheeps clothing per say, lol.
