I gotta ask ya EAGLER....are there many VAM's still on the road down there or are they like our AMC'c.....nearly extinct.

I would love to know this as well.  Are the VAM's sitting in yards everywhere, or are they a rarity?

Because as far as I'm concerned, I would LOVE to go down and grab one for show and shine's here.

My mexican buddy goes down there alot to visit family....He says they are still around...not in any kind of quantities but still around....he says you see them about as much as one would see a spirit here....I told him to ask around for me when he goes down to mexico city over x-mas....Maybe he'll be bringing me back the ultimate present.

What I would like to know is what the mexican equivalent to ebay is? I wouldn't buy one over the internet, but most people are not motivated to post pictures online until they are trying to sell a car. I have a huge collection of pictures from Ebay over the years and would like to collect pictures of VAM cars too. I'm also interested in their Jeep trucks and other VAM cars. I bet there is an online auction site with a treasure cove full of pictures if I knew enough spanish to find it.

the answer is "yes" they are a few vams still on the road some of them in pretty good shape as the one i have, they are very hard to find in pristine conditions due people's lack of kepts. i will post some updated pics of my red amx soon. i have to say that i heve two of the most beautiful well kept amcs here in cuernavaca. everybody turns to see while driving any of them
because nobody grows up knowing all
