Ah, some respect.  I suppose right now with the economy the way it is that lower priced AMC's will start to become of interest to collectors.  I hope they realize they will probably not hold their value once things straighten out and the traditional collector cars start selling again.

during a commercial for Pinks all out and Napa, they showed a lime green Spirit (possibly AMX though)
and they had a nice little spot on the Barrett Jackson about the SC/Rambler

These days we have some short advertisement from Coca Cola where you can see yellow Gremlin. (Altough I don´t think how many people know what are they looking at). But it´s quit nice to see AMC.

Has anyone else noticed that AARP is using two different Gremlins?

Has anyone seen Pinapple Express?
In the scene where they hitch a ride in the boat (that is being towed).  Is that a Spirit towing the boat?  I didn't get a good look at it and my friends who are sick of hearing about AMCs didn't want to rewind it.

I just rented that movie, but I didn't notice!  Maybe Sean can do that nifty thing again and find the clip and post it for us all here to see!   ;)

I just watched "Starsky and Hutch" last night and noticed that (somewhere in the middle of the movie) Starsky gets shot at by some dood in a Pacer.  They destroyed the back glass in that car!

Dutch soul/funk/rock star Boris Titulaer is using an Ambassador in his video clip.

Enjoy his southern Dutch accent (and music in between).
