Ok, James. I love you man.....but you asked me to fight you in the comments about badges. I'm a badge guy. It's what I do for a living. The Marlin badge is cool. The Javelin badge is cool. The Corvette Stingray badge is cool. The Kia Stinger badge......is not cool. It's basically just a word in a cool-ish font. If you're going to ask for the "coolest badge in the game right now"....How about the Hellcat badge, the Demon badge? If you want to go foreign, how about the Peugeot Lion badge? How about the Holden Lion badge? How about the Vauxhall Griffin badge? You need to do an episode on badges How cars get their names. How the legal process/trademark battles get in the way. How companies try to steal away names from other companies. How badges and logos have changed over the years. There were some really cool badges back in the day. Talk about cloisionne emblems. Explain what that means, and why we don't make badges with that process anymore. Explain why there is a snake eating a baby on the Alpha Romeo badge.

I've owned many AMC's over the years, from a factory V/8 Pacer, AMX's and Javelin, best of all two S/C Ramblers. Every one of the AMC/Rambler cars are fun to drive, less expensive than most others, and best of all, and unlike a camaro" when going to cruise nights you're likely to be the only one there.

Do the story of the Javelin AMX. It's such an awesome underdog story. They entered the Trans Am series with barely any time to test their cars, so they tested them at the track, and the 24 hour races. All the big brands thought it was a joke when AMC said they were entering the Trans Am series. They soon found out that they were serious contenders. They placed first in several races and were able to hang with, or beat legendary drivers such as Dan Gurney of Ford racing, and Mark Donahue of Chevrolet. They did so damn good, Mark Donahue LEFT Chevrolet to drive for AMC. It's such a damn good underdog story, you'd love it. Similar to Ford vs. Ferrari in a way. Here's an awesome documentary from AMC about it back in the day usvid.net/video/video-yDJ6BhUrsak.html

The Hudson Hornet actually wasn't named after the insect. It was named after the USS Hornet aircraft carrier. ... Also the USS Wasp in WW2. Although the aircraft carriers were named after the insect.
