Nothing says "Oregon" like a beautiful 70s car in front of Fred Meyer

beautiful find, an all-time favorite, along with the wagon - the stripper version is best - perfect color too.

These were tough little cars! I once owned a '76 with the straight six back in the early '90's. It would start on the very coldest of mornings without a hitch while everyone else would need to have a jump. Sadly, the body was starting to give out, especially the floor, and I had to let it go. The engine still ran strong though and hardly used oil. :)

holy heck, look how clean this paint is! and then look at the cancer above the rear bumper! how does that happen?

and i think that's the portland fred meyer i've visited the very least.

My grandmother had an identical Hornet, down to spec & color. I learned crude body work (bondo) on that car.

The cancer above the bumper is dried out and crumbling plastic much like many GM cars of the era. Evidently AMC used the same material.

That color and those color-coded dog dishes...it doesn't get much more Malaise era plain jain spec than that.

It looks like many people here are looking for the original manufacturers specifications. I wanted to tell everyone about VehicleBios.com. It has free access to all specs for almost every auto and truck ever built! Hope this helps some people. Thank you, Rashida, Ten Doves"
