AMCs in the media
« on: November 14, 2008, 12:35:10 PM »
Well, I've been noticing a lot more AMCs on TV lately
Lime Green 70 AMX on CHop Cut Rebuild
the Gremlin in SUpernatural
Gremlin in Heros
And last night, I was watching Life on Mars, which takes place in 1973, and there was a Pacer commercial on the TV, about being the only big small car I think, which is a mistake for the show, and the only timeline mistake I've noticed so far

this also includes magfazines and other forms of media

I just finished watching Two Lane Blacktop, in one scene, they pull up next to a green 68/9 Javelin that I think has flowers all over it
and in the background is an SC/Rambler

I watched the Starsky and Hutch movie (not worth watching, butchered the original series) and they shot up a Pacer

i could be wrong, as i always seem to catch it a split second too late to make sure... but i'm almost certain there is a kammback or gremlin in a mini-cooper commercial thats been on lately. Has anyone seen this?

Some guy I work with gave me an envelope with "we found your high school prom picture" written on it.  Inside the envelope was the geico ad with the white gremlin!
