 There is a site called  IMCDb.org
that lists movie appearances by all makes and models of cars.
Looked for this after seeing some of the cars y'all have seen and a few more in a bunch of older movies.

link to the amc model page:

http://www.imcdb.org/vehicles_make-AMC.html?PHPSESSID=f943608934891397f75cc977588d7e5d

you won't believe how many AMC were there and that you saw them in the movie way back when ....

Aside from all the Bond film appearances, they were everywhere.
Maybe you'll see your own car ...

I saw a Kammback in Who Killed the Electric Car. I had to stop and check, of course. You could clearly see the "4 wheel drive" logo.

All 3 Back to the Future movies are free on demand, and I was watching the first one, my mom looks over at one part, and says
"Isn't that your car, Shelby, come over and look, Kyles's AMC is on TV"
