Hello from Central Illinois
« on: July 19, 2017, 11:29:06 AM »
Hello everybody.
At the end of June I bought an '86 Wagon. This forum has already been a huge help. Thank you all.
I grew up in an AMC family. My grandfather was a service manager in a dealership and my Dad and Uncle worked there as well. They drag raced AMX's in the '70s and '80s. I have a '68 390 Auto AMX in need of complete restoration, a '68-'69 shell that will get turned into something, and a '66 American that I bought for parts to make the shell a roller.  This is my first Eagle.

Welcome to the forum. Do your family members have stories of Chrysler burying or throwing away brand new AMC parts after they acquired them?   :o

Welcome, R.C.S.  ! I'm pretty new on here too but I'm pretty jealous about your history in an AMC family :)
