I've been watching episodes of an old TV show, (on YouTube), called Mannix. So far I've seen a Gremlin, a Matador and an old Rambler wagon.

The show ran from '67 to '75 so all I've ever seen is reruns. I turned 14 in '70 when we got our first television and the last thing I wanted to do at that age was sit around watching a static filled old black and white TV. In fact, I still don't watch TV although I do like watching the old stuff on YouTube.

In some episodes all the policeman cars are Matadors.

While watching "The Saint", (Season 2 Episode 13), I noticed a guy driving a Rambler. The episode starts in Ontario, Canada. It's   first seen just before the five minute mark. I think it was a 1957 Rambler but not 100% sure. "The Saint" was a British show starring Roger Moore before he became James Bond.

In this edition of Hagerty's Barn Finds, they spotlight a guy who has a Rambler and a lifted AMC Eagle he is working on. Jump forward to the 8:50 mark if you want to get right to the good stuff lol

Great detailed history of AMC and it's predecessors.  Set aside some time (or use the playback speed on Youtube to speed it up) as it's a long one!!
