Ironically, (I believe) AMC never sold or had any dealers in Bangkok.
AMC must have sponsored the movie to promote their cars during the time.  What a chase!  That jump was spectacular, and made it all in one piece!  :)

You gotta take this Hornet to Cordova this year for the AMC weekend. Bring a pair of slicks with you and see how your times are. That could be a great deal of fun.
 I will have to check my schedule with my new internship starting this summer, and school schedule next fall.  Do you know when the dates are?  I think it was in September last year if I remember correctly.

I think it is the same time as last year. I'll have to Google it. Maybe Mavericke will chime in and let us know.

I might be able to make that.  I'll have started my next semester in college, but we don't have school on the weekends starting on Friday. ;D

Just have to see if I can get a couple days off of work...  ::)

I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

One for sale in Berlin Germany, look at the price!
That is one ultra rare car...Especially in Europe!  Looks to be well taken care of too!

I believe the price is fair, concerning how many there are in Europe in general.  7,500 Euros equals ~$12,500...?  I think it's correctly priced IMO.

Yes, that is a pretty rare car in Europe, price is not to bad (for Europe) at about $10.000.
Just hang on to yours, it will only go up in value.
