I'm like a lot of car guys: I admired Studebaker quality and design, I admired AMC for its spunk, fresh ideas, and getting by with marginal capitalization. So, what happened? Well, like a lot of car guys, I said that sincerely but never once bought either of those marques. Unsurprisingly, both failed and no longer are around...

That AMX 3 looked a lot like a Lamborghini, which isn’t a bad thing. I always liked the Javelin, maybe it’s just me.

Both badges and names in general were cooler than today. Why aren’t more people named “Buck Hardlove” Or “Dick Trigger?” Modern badges are lame that’s why I have custom made ones. Because I want everyone to know that I’m a “sexy bitch” when driving my Hyundai Accent

If Renault’s CEO had not been assassinated, it is possible AMC could still be around. The YJ had just launched and ZJ was on its way.

How much shit do you think old Dick Teague got every single day, " look at you with your top shirt button undone ya big Dick Teague" , " I bought you lunch last week and you've still not called me back ya big Dick Teague!" I'll bet even high ups in the company took the piss " If anyone knows about sexy cars its Dick Teague!"

I'm disappointed the Pacer X, and Gremlin X were not brought up. Huge missed opportunity that would have only added another 15-30 seconds to the video.

Hey man what about the FWD sedan AMC developed in 1986 that Chrysler sold as an eagle premier (and dodge monaco after the merger?) and the entire eagle division of chrysler?

My 69' AMX 390 was my all-time favorite. Ive had stangs, Camaro's, 90 zr 1 vette, BMW m5 etc, too many to count now nearing 60 but the AMX is the one I miss the most. It had no problem driving from Dallas to South Tx Rockport at 100-120 mph and got decent mileage doing it. It would run cool the entire way at high speed. Not even my Vettes would do that without getting a useless 3-4 mpg's.

Probably shoulda split this one up. Up to Speed on the Javelin, AMX, Eagle, Rambler, Gremlin, and Pacer I mean they had Wilt Fucking Chamberlain doing ads for the Pacer!!! That alone should get it its own episode.

AMC was a manufacturer that gave the best of the big 3 and the buyer so much more for their money, what was optional for the big 3 was standard equipment for AMC, I love AMC and can only imagine what their vehicles would have looked like today had they still been in the game, tell you one thing, Chrysler would have been a memory had they not practically stolen Jeep from AMC, it's the only thing keeping them alive today cuz everything else is pure garbage from their divisions
