All my stuff with engines I consider interesting or different. I don't like pulling up to a stop light next to the same car as mine. All my cars and scooters are in my signature. I see a few Yaris every week, maybe 1 plasma green Crosstrek hybrid a month, maybe a few Dell del sols a year, have only seen 1 Honda metro on the street, never seen a burgman 400 or agility on the road.

I forgot about this car I used to own: 1967 Rambler American 2-door (exactly like this green one).

Bought this from a friend in Montreal when he was returning to Australia. Drove it for about 1 1/2 years, then sold it when I decided to move to Australia.

It was in like-new condition and had a pathetically slow 6 cylinder with an automatic transmission. It had a great looking black and white vinyl interior, a bench seat up front, rubber floor liner, and an am/fm radio.

Strangely enough, I actually liked that car.

A design from the end of the Behaus (sp?) design era reaction to the tailfin madness of the late fifties. Shortly after this Rambler, fun-with-curves appeared (which AMC wasn't very good at) and ran until park-by-ear bumpers/emissions/economy/downsizing in 72.

Yes, it was identical to the one in the photo; same green exterior colour, same green wheels, hubcaps, and whitewall tyres, too! I always thought it was a very handsome car; in fact, I still do, but many would disagree.

Original advertising for 1968 Rambler American shows body-coloured wheels, centre caps, and w/w tyres . And, a base price for the 2-door 6-cylinder American of just $2000.

I just bought a 2010 Ford Crown Victoria ex police car with 100,000 miles on it. This guy buys them and fixes them up and sells them. I do a pic but this site won’t let my tablet pictures post

My very first vehicle when I turned 16 in 1979...

That truck simply would never get stuck with four-wheel drive. However, the 13 MPG sucked ass...
