An Eagle would have been more utilitarian for sure, and a much more fun and capeable...especially if it retained its four doors like a Subaru Baja or something.

I was looking through the American Motors Owners magazine from back in 2002 which had a bunch of pictures from the 2002 Kenosha gathering, which was the 100th anniversary of Rambler, and came across another picture of the Hornet Cowboy in the lower right corner.  Right next to it is a picture of a custom Rambler car/truck.

Yeah cool photo. Looks like a Sundancer Concord. Would love to go to a huge AMC car show like that in Kenosha. That would be so neat!

They had the 2007 AMO Convention in Aurora, CO about 5 miles from my house.  I shined up my Gremlin and entered it into the show.  It was really cool, the only thing that disappointed me was the fact that probably 80% of the cars were Javelins or AMX (at least that's what it seemed like to me).  AMC was so much more than just those two cars.
