I didn't mean to hijack the thread. I posted the Concord since it has the correct reproduction lug nuts that I purchased from SpiritGTMan.

The picture of the Spirit next to a Jeep was at the Potomac Ramblers club fall gathering several years ago.  If you look up the Wikipedia of AMC Spirit you will find a very similar picture, someone took a picture of my car there and posted it to Wikipedia.
The last picture, right profile, is at the AMC Rambler Club nationals last summer in Annapolis.

So how does this thing drive with that FI and mMTX? I remember the Comanche PU with a 4.0HO and a MTX was a little screamer... SURRREE woudl be nioce to see a video of this GT getting down on the freeway a little bit... 1/4 mile wouldn't hurt either... it'd at least allow us to compare old vs. new (er).

This is what I would really like as my summer car. I have pretty much decided against another new car. I sell cars, and they just bore me now. A Spirit GT would be very cool.
My list of my cars/toys (or toys at my disposal!)

2007 Lincoln Town Car
1985 AMC Eagle Sportwagon
Trek 4500 Mountain Bike
Kawasaki ZXI 900 jetski
Polaris SLTx jetski
1962 Cruisers Inc Mahagany Outboard

I like to to tell people my Eagle is like a Ferrari. It's quirky, tempermental, border-line exotic, and something you don't see everyday.  See? Makes perfect sense....
